Hit psychological thriller The Secrets She Keep will have a second season on 10, with production to commence in Sydney later this year.
Reprising their roles in the Lingo Productions series are Jessica De Gouw (Operation Buffalo, The Crown) and Laura Carmichael (Downton Abbey, The Spanish Princess).
Season two kicks off from last year’s finale; after kidnapping baby Ben and passing him off as her own, Agatha was arrested after Meghan bravely confronted her to retrieve her newborn. But what about Meghan’s own secret? Who is Ben’s father? And what of Jack’s infidelity?
10’s Head of Drama and Executive Production, Rick Maier, said: “Some stories leave you with more questions than answers: What happened to Agatha after the arrest; and what happened to Meghan, baby Ben and their big secret? TSSK2 sets off at a frenetic pace and just doesn’t let up. Sarah Walker, the writing team, including author Michael Robotham, and our friends at Lingo have outdone themselves with this brilliant new thriller.”
Screen Australia’s CEO, Graeme Mason, said: “Series one was a huge success which had viewers both in Australia and around the world gripped following its many twists and turns. We’re proud to support the experienced cast and crew to bring a fresh new chapter of this thrilling Australian psychological drama to our screens.”
Major production investment is from Screen Australia in association with Screen NSW.
