Zoe is happy in a new relationship, but after three years away Dan knows Zoe was the one he let go and wants her back. Will Dan and Zoe be able to work together to hunt down the serial killer or will they become the killer’s next victims?

Also headlining this all-star cast is Deborah Mailman as homicide squad boss Anna Morton. Dominic Monaghan as Senior Constable Stephen Langley, who works in the Dog Squad, and Robert Mammone (Underbelly, Fat Tony & Co, Janet King) as Detective Sergeant Jim Russo.

Marny Kennedy (Mortified, Janet King) appears as semi-pro surfer Amber Wells, Darcie Irwin-Simpson (Love Child) is Detective Claire Hobson and Arka Das (Pulse) plays Forensic Specialist Depak Chaudhary.

    Really looking forward to this one. Great to see a new drama on 9 since they cancelled Love Child & House Husbands. Was always disappointed that Hyde & Seek wasn’t renewed. It was a great show.

  2. I hardly watch 9, but see this on 9life a fair bit, but I am usually fast forwarding, once I have seen the advert once. As always I’ll check it out to support the local industry!

  3. A particular concern of mine with the commercial networks in recent years is how heavily they downplay their drama offerings. If there is a forthcoming reality show then the promotion is endless – every ad-break, pop-ups during other shows, some print advertising, a little online maybe.

    If a drama comes along though like Bite Club then nothing. Not a single promotion in any of the media I see. The only awareness I have of this program is this particular article and I watch WIN fairly regularly (at least the news services and occasional late night offering – rarely the reality shows).

    Really surprised they have decided on an absolute promotion blackout for this one.
