‘The Bletchley Circle’ Season 2 Announced

ITV has announced that the women of The Bletchley Circle are returning for a second season of code-breaking and mystery solving. A four-episode second season has been commissioned, and the network revealed that the season will be split into two self-contained stories, each spanning two episodes, that will be written by series creator Guy Burt.

Season two will pick up a year after the events of season one to find Susan (Anna Maxwell Martin) still reeling from the dark case that reunited her with her code-breaking friends, Millie (Rachael Stirling) working as a translator for a German businessman, and Lucy holding down a new job as a Scotland Yard secretary. The first two-part story will find the women reunited when Alice Merren (Hattie Morahan) is faced with murder charges. Her friends will have to sift through the evidence to prove Alice’s innocence and discover the reason why she was found holding the gun after a renowned scientist was shot in the first place. Millie will take center stage in the second story when she becomes embroiled in the dark world of human trafficking.

Season one of The Bletchley Circle just finished airing on PBS in the States. There is no word yet on when season two will air.
