Broadchurch Season 2
The shocking murder of 11-year-old Daniel Latimer rocked the quiet seaside town of Broadchurch, as everyone in the tight-knit community suddenly became a suspect. After a tumultuous investigation, a killer was finally named.
Now, Broadchurch is still reeling and the case of young Danny Latimer is far from over. The new season of Broadchurch follows two seemingly unconnected events: the trial of Joe Miller (the man charged for Danny’s murder) and the Sandbrook case – Alec Hardy’s previously failed investigation, which has dogged his existence ever since.
Though all expect a swift sentencing, Joe Miller’s hearing quickly escalates into a full-trial, proving there are undeniable discrepancies and still more secrets hidden among the townspeople. At the same time, Hardy’s past comes back to haunt him when his primary suspect in the Sandbrook homicide resurfaces, looking for the woman who testified against him—his wife, Claire. What unfolds is a series of twists and turns as the Sandbrook case bursts back open, unraveling Hardy’s past and bringing shocking truths from both cases to the surface.
The new season also sees the return of Andrew Buchan, Jodie Whittaker and Arthur Darvill, alsong with new cast members Eve Myles, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Charlotte Rampling and James D'Arcy.
