USA PREMIERE: Broadchurch Returns To BBC America Tonight
The wait is over. The second series of Broadchurch, ITV's multi award-winning drama from Kudos and Imaginary Friends, is back on screens in the USA tonight as it premieres on BBC America at 10/9C.
David Tennant returns as Alec Hardy and Olivia Colman resumes her role as Ellie Miller, last seen having her life torn apart as husband Joe confessed to murdering local schoolboy Danny Latimer in the seaside town.
Jodie Whittaker and Andrew Buchan, who play Danny’s parents Beth and Mark Latimer, will also return to their roles, alongside Arthur Darvill as vicar Paul Coates, Carolyn Pickles as newspaper editor Maggie Radcliffe and a host of other 'local' faces.
Legendary Emmy nominated film and television actress Charlotte Rampling, Academy Award, BAFTA and Golden Globe nominated Marianne Jean-Baptiste, James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas, Hitchcock, Jupiter Ascending), Eve Myles (Torchwood, Merlin, Little Dorrit) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Bad Education, Blandings, Glue) will also join the cast of Broadchurch for this series.
The first series saw the murder of 11-year-old Danny Latimer rock the small Dorset town of Broadchurch, as DI Alec Hardy (Tennant) was put in charge of the case, much to the chagrin of local officer DS Ellie Miller (Colman). Their investigation saw many townspeople come under suspicion, including Danny’s father Mark (Buchan), but after many twists and turns, the revelation of
the killer’s identity had far-reaching consequences, not least for the two detectives.
Now as we return to Broadchurch Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller is still reeling from the revelation that Danny was murdered by Joe.
And as the residents of the sea-side town deal with the aftermath of Danny’s murder and Joe’s arrest, Detective Inspector Alec Hardy is haunted by an old investigation when a witness from an unsolved murder case comes asking for help.
