Filming Begins on Season Two of Unforgotten


LONDON: Filming has started on the second season of the ITV drama Unforgotten, starring Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar.

Produced by Mainstreet Pictures, the show returns to production later this month. The second season will feature a brand-new story from creator and writer Chris Lang, who will again explore the fallout from the investigation into a historic murder case.

Walker and Bhaskar will be joined in season two by Mark Bonnar (Undercover, Shetland, Catastrophe) Rosie Cavaliero (Prey, Hunderby, The Enfield Haunting), Lorraine Ashbourne (Jericho, The Interceptor, New Tricks), Badria Timimi (EastEnders, DCI Banks, Killing Jesus), Charlie Condou (You, Me and the Apocalypse, Coronation Street, Casualty), Holly Aird (Page Eight, The Promise, Identity), Nigel Lindsay (You, Me and the Apocalypse, Foyle’s War, Poirot), Peter Egan (Downton Abbey, Grantchester, Doctor Who) and Wendy Craig (Death in Paradise, Doctors, Marple).

The series will be distributed internationally by BBC Worldwide.

“We were delighted at the response to Unforgotten and it’s fantastic to be bringing back Cassie and Sunny to investigate a different historical murder,” said Sally Haynes on behalf of producers Mainstreet Pictures. “As with the first series Chris has written a complex, emotional and surprising story that challenges our heroes as they uncover long-hidden secrets in the lives of the suspects.”

Lang, Unforgotten‘s writer, creator and executive producer, said: “I am so excited to be making a second season of Unforgotten. Once again we have managed to assemble a jaw-dropping cast, alongside a hugely talented production team, and I cannot wait to see the stories I have created start to come to life on screen.”
