‘Line Of Duty’ Season 2 Announced

BBC has shared the pick up of the new thriller Line of Duty. The network made the announcement of the series renewal just days after the show, starring Lennie James (Hung), Martin Compston (How To Stop Being A Loser) and Vicky McLure (This Is England 88), aired its freshman season finale.

Ben Stephenson, the Controller of BBC Drama, has since issued a statement over the exciting news. “Jed Mercurio and World Productions have realized a brilliant series for BBC Two with ‘Line Of Duty’ that encapsulates my vision for bold, authored and utterly original drama on the channel.”

Meanwhile, BBC Two’s Controller, Janice Hadlow, was also thrilled over the news of the series’ return. “I’m so pleased to have this brilliantly realized thriller on BBC Two; it is a wonderful addition to the channel’s rich landscape of drama. With fantastic writing from Jed Mercurio, great characterisation, tightly plotted detail and riveting performances from a stand out cast, I’m thrilled that this complex, contemporary drama has captured the imagination of such a loyal and appreciative audience.”

‘Line of Duty’ is scheduled to return to the BBC Network sometime next summer. Tell us what you think about the season 2 pick-up below. Are you excited about another news season with DS Steve Arnott and the gang?
