Annika Season Two Heads to WOWOW


All3Media International has sold season two of Black Camel Pictures’ Annika to WOWOW in Japan, which has also relicensed season one.

Nicola Walker reprises her role as DI Annika Strandhed in the UKTV original, which launched on Alibi in August and Masterpiece in the U.S. in October. Season one of the show, based on a BBC Radio 4 play, also aired on BBC One and iPlayer.

Ziran (Tony) Tang, VP of sales at All3Media International, noted: “The first season of Annika was a firm favorite among our discerning drama buyers, so we were delighted to be able to bring them a brand-new season packed with more twist-laden cases for Annika and her team to tackle. Detective dramas continue to be a bestseller worldwide, and Annika adds a whole new layer of intrigue to this much-loved genre, as Nicola Walker invites audiences in to hear Annika’s thoughts, engaging them and enticing them to solve the crimes with her. With its appeal now proven and a second season delivered, we know Annika’s popularity in the international market will continue to go from strength to strength.”
