USA: Broadchurch Series 2 Premieres On February 4th 2015 On BBC America

Good news for Broadchurch fans in the USA. The second season of the hit drama from the UK will premiere on BBC America on Wednesday 4th February 2015 from 10pm/9c.

BBC AMERICA’s gripping drama Broadchurch garnered critical acclaim, sparked widespread discussion on social media and earned a Peabody Award following its premiere in the US last year on BBC AMERICA. With an ensemble cast lead by three-time BAFTA-winning actress Olivia Colman and Emmy-winning actor David Tennant, the first season centered on a quiet seaside town following the shocking murder of a young boy and the impact it had on the tight-knit community when everyone became a suspect. David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan and Arthur Darvill reprise their roles in the new season, and are joined by legendary actress Charlotte Rampling, Academy Award nominee Marianne Jean-Baptiste, James D’Arcy, Eve Myles and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The series is created and written by Chris Chibnall and executive produced by Chibnall and Jane Featherstone.  The producer is Richard Stokes, who also produced the first season. James Strong, who directed five episodes of the first season including episode one, directed episodes one and two of the new season.

There's no trailer for the USA yet though one aired in the UK earlier today, giving tantalising clues to the identities of the new characters and the direction that the plot might take.

David Tennant can be seen on FOX TV in the USA tonight at 9pm/8c in the season finale of Gracepoint, based on Broadchurch Season 1.

Broadchurch will also air on Showcase in Canada; a start date and time is to be confirmed.
