Earlier this month, we reported here that the folks across the pond would be getting the third season of the acclaimed and award-winning drama Last Tango in Halifax later this year. And now those of us here in the States get to catch up on the second season of the series starting on June 29 “that captured the hearts of millions of viewers” according to Beth Hoppe, the Chief Programming Executive and General Manager at PBS. Hoppe continued with, “We are excited to continue the love story between Alan and Celia and work with Red Production and the BBC on an exciting second season”.

The six-part series returns with Alan (Derek Jacobi from ‘The Borgias’) and Celia (Anne Reid from ‘Upstairs, Downstairs’) continuing to negotiate family baggage to plan a life together. Having come so close to losing each other forever thanks to Alan’s near fatal heart attack, he and Celia decide to have a romantic secret wedding as soon as possible. But how will their respective daughters react? The uptight Caroline (Sarah Lancashire from ‘Wuthering Heights’) and rebellious Gillian (Nicola Walker from ‘Spooks’) are discovering they actually quite like each other, however Gillian’s need to own up to her night with Caroline’s ex-husband John could jeopardize the soon-to-be stepsisters’ fledgling friendship. As secrets from the past come tumbling out and family members adjust to changing relationships, can Alan and Celia find the long-awaited happiness they deserve?

The second season of ‘Last Tango in Halifax’ will return to PBS starting on Sunday, June 29 at 8/7c.
