Renewed: The Capture

UK surveillance thriller The Capture will return for a second series.

Holliday Grainger will return as Rachel Carey for the second series, set to follow series one’s shock ending that saw Carey seemingly join forces with the shadowy correction team she had previously sought to expose.

Holliday Grainger says: “I’m excited to be joining Ben Chanan and the team for series two of The Capture. Ben’s meticulously researched world challenges the boundary between possible and probable dark truths and constantly keeps you guessing. I can’t wait to explore what he has in store for Rachel Carey next.”

Ben Chanan says: “I am thrilled to be joining forces with the BBC, Heyday and NBCUniversal International Studios again. The Capture series two will see Rachel Carey fall deeper into the dizzying world of fakery and disinformation. She has only just scratched the surface of this conspiracy.”

Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, says: “The BBC is so proud of The Capture which gripped and enticed audiences last year, and following its launch, grew its audience each week, from episode three onwards, which is no mean feat. We’re hugely grateful to Ben, the cast and the entire team at Heyday Television and NBCUniversal for all their work on the series. I cannot wait for audiences to see where Ben is about to take this story next, and we’re excited to have Holliday back as the determined Rachel Carey, ready to take on her next challenge.”

David Heyman, Executive Producer for Heyday Television, adds: “We could not be more delighted with the fantastic response to The Capture, from audiences and critics alike. Congratulations to our brilliant writer-director Ben Chanan who delivered this thrilling, provocative thriller, which resonated so widely – and to all our outstanding cast and crew. Series two promises to be an even more timely and enthralling conspiracy thriller, we can’t wait to share it.”

Series two will be written and directed by Ben Chanan.

It screens in Australia on ABC.

  1. The Capture had a similarity to ‘Bodyguard’ with Callum Turner ( Lance Corporal Shaun Emery) becoming the central character of the shows season 1 success, he will be missed if Callum doesn’t make a return in season 2.

      I don’t necessarily agree. Not an immediate fixture for early in S2 anyway. Bench him for the first couple of eps (avoiding spoilers) and have him join the solicitor.
