Renewed: Guilt

Black comedy thriller Guilt has been renewed for a second season by the BBC.

Th series written by Neil Forsyth starred Mark Bonnar and Jamie Sives as two disparate brothers, united by guilt when they accidentally run over and kill an old man on a darkened street. Other cast included Emun Elliot, Bill Paterson, Sian Brooke, Ruth Bradley and Ellie Haddington

Filming on series two (4 x 60) is expected to start in Scotland later this year, following government guidelines around coronavirus.

Patrick Holland, Controller, BBC Two, says: “Neil Forsyth’s Guilt was a dark gem in last year’s schedules and I am delighted that the team is returning for a new series. It was a real treat to have Neil’s sharp writing and the wonderful performances, weaving a brilliant tale of lies, deception and skulduggery. Audiences across the UK await series two with relish.”

Guilt screens in Australia on BBC First.


  1. Guilt is a good time filler and rejuvenates the classic retro British movie themes about surviving unfortunate events and the criminal class. Mark Bonnar was a perfect fit for his role as was Jamie Sives who should get a bit more to work with in series two. Ellie Haddington was another familiar Scottish actor who made this series a success.
