BBC First fast-tracks S2 with Tchéky Karyo, joined by Fiona Shaw.
Season Two of UK drama Baptiste starring Tchéky Karyo screens on BBC First later this month.
The drama from Harry & Jack Williams, in which Karyo revives his Julien Baptiste character from The Missing, sees Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve, Fleabag) join.
This will be fast-tracked a day after its British debut.
Tchéky Karyo (The Missing) resumes his role as retired police investigator Julien Baptiste, and Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve, Fleabag) makes her debut appearance in the series as British Ambassador Emma
Chambers, for a brand new gripping case which will take viewers into Budapest’s secretive and corrupt underworld.
Julien Baptiste is not the man we knew before. After enduring a horrific personal tragedy, Julien has pushed his wife Celia away and is looking for any distraction – whether that be the bottom of a bottle or a new case – to consume him.
When British Ambassador Emma Chambers’ whole family disappears whilst on a skiing holiday in the Hungarian mountains, Baptiste immerses himself into Emma’s world, committed to finding her husband and two sons. However, when the case turns into something far more brutal and desperate, Julien must navigate a Hungarian police force he doesn’t trust and unrelenting media who are hungry for information on such a high-profile international case. Julien must remain rational in the face of chaos in order to find Emma’s family. Will he be able to solve his most complex case yet?”
8:30pm Tuesday July 20 on BBC First and Binge.
