Fans of Nicola Walker will be happy to hear that she has agreed to reprise her role as DI Annika Stranded in the upcoming second season of Alibi’s Annika. Walker has appeared in several British television dramas, such as The Split and Unforgotten.
“We are all looking forward to combating crime on sea and land with the MHU for a second series,” Walker said in a statement announcing her return to the show. She then dropped some plot hints for the future by saying, “There are mysteries closer to home for Annika that will have to be faced.” A bumpy ride is in store for us.
Is ‘annika’ Renewed for Season 2?
Masterpiece PBS announced in August that it would develop a second season of Annika in collaboration with Alibi in the United Kingdom and All3Media International.
In the detective drama set in Glasgow, Walker plays the chief of the Marine Homicide Unit. She and her crew are responsible for investigating the numerous killings that occur on Scotland’s waterways. Annika frequently breaks the fourth wall to share her thoughts on the crimes at hand, literature, and raising her temperamental adolescent daughter Morgan (Silvie Furneaux).
“We are all looking forward to combatting crime on land and sea with the MHU for a second season, and Annika will have to confront secrets closer to home. “This is going to be a rough ride!” Walker stated in a statement upon the announcement of the renewal.
In addition to Walker, returning cast members include Jamie Sives as DS Michael McAndrews, Katie Leung (Harry Potter) as DC Blair Ferguson, and Ukweli Roach as DS Tyrone Clarke. It is unclear whether Paul McGann will reprise his role as Dr. Jake Strathearn, Morgan’s therapist and a prospective love interest for Annika.
Annika Season 2 Release Date
Neither the United Kingdom nor the United States have set a release date for Season 2 of Annika as of yet (Season 1 premiered on Britain’s Alibi channel a full year before it made its U.S. debut). Late in October, however, Black Camel Pictures tweeted that production had begun on the second set of episodes.
In an early October tweet, Roach revealed that he had finished his work on season 2.
What a setting and scene to conclude on, he wrote. “Alongside the legendary Nicola Walker. It was a delight to see Scotland. I now consider myself an honorary Scotsman.”
A premiere date has not been set at this time, but it is probable that the show will air in early 2023. There has been no mention of a trailer; however, remain tuned for updates as they become available.
Annika Season 2 Plot
There will be six one-hour episodes, similar to the original run. Each week, the MHU team will be entrusted with solving a new murder case.
In case you forgot, the show’s namesake, DI Annika Stranded, is the head of the Marine Homicide Unit and drives a speedboat (MHU). They are investigating the grisly and unexplainable murders that have occurred in Scotland’s rivers. The first time around, Stranded was preoccupied with a hostage situation involving one of her officers, her moody adolescent daughter, and professional drama.
