GERMANY: Broadchurch Season 2 Will Not Premiere Till 2016

German broadcaster ZDF has confirmed that has acquired the rights to broadcast the second season of th UK series Broadchurch - but not until spring 2016.

German fans have already had a long wait to see the first series of the award-winning murder mystery starring David Tennant and Olivia Colman. The show only aired on ZDF earlier this year, a full two years after its original UK premiere in 2013. 

The second season follows on a few months after the explosive conclusion of the first when the identity of young Danny Latimer's killer was revealed. With the murderer confessing the crime, the residents of the small seaside town are hoping for a speedy conclusion to the trial, but a last minute twist plunges them straight back the nightmare. Meanwhile, Alec Hardy is drawn back towards an old case and enlists Ellie Miller to help him.

Season 2 of Broadchurch sees the return of many familiar faces, including David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Arthur Darvill, Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan and Matthew Gravelle. They are joined by a host of cast members as Eve Myles, James D'Arcy, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Charlotte Rampling and Phoebe Waller-Bridge all join up.

ITV and series creator Chris Chibnall have confirmed that there will be a third season of the drama.
