NORWAY PREMIERE: Broadchurch Series 2 Begins on NRK1 Tonight

The much anticipated second season the multi award-winning British drama Broadchurch is back on screens in Norway tonight at 21.35 on NRK1.

The first season saw the small town of Broadchurch in Dorset rocked by the murder of a young boy. Newcomer Alec Hardy and local detective Ellie Miller joined forces for the investigation which saw many townspeople come under suspicion, but after many twists and turns, the revelation of the killer’s identity had far-reaching consequences, not least for the two detectives.

Now David Tennant returns as Alec Hardy and Olivia Colman resumes her role as Ellie Miller, last seen having her life torn apart as husband Joe confessed to murdering local schoolboy Danny Latimer in the seaside town. Jodie Whittaker and Andrew Buchan, who play Danny’s parents Beth and Mark Latimer, will also return to their roles, alongside Arthur Darvill as vicar Paul Coates, Carolyn Pickles as newspaper editor Maggie Radcliffe and a host of other 'local' faces.

Legendary Emmy nominated film and television actress Charlotte Rampling, Academy Award, BAFTA and Golden Globe nominated Marianne Jean-Baptiste, James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas, Hitchcock, Jupiter Ascending), Eve Myles (Torchwood, Merlin, Little Dorrit) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Bad Education, Blandings, Glue) will also join the cast of Broadchurch for this series.

Story details are being kept tightly under wraps for the second series, meaning it is one of the most highly anticipated returning dramas in years.

Broadchurch, Wednesdays, 21.35 on NRK1
