Renewed: The Gold
UK drama led by Hugh Bonneville set around a major 1983 theft to return for a second season.
UK drama The Gold, inspired by the true story of a Brink’s-Mat security depot theft of gold bullion worth £26m in 1983, has been renewed for a second season.
Returning cast includes Hugh Bonneville (Brian Boyce), Charlotte Spencer (Nicki Jennings), Emun Elliott (Tony Brightwell), Tom Cullen (John Palmer), Stefanie Martini (Marnie Palmer) and Sam Spruell (Charlie Miller).
Writer and Executive Producer, Neil Forsyth says: “I am delighted that we have been given the opportunity to tell the rest of the Brink’s-Mat story, which sees the consequences of the robbery and its aftermath grow only more surprising, dramatic and far-reaching, both in Britain and around the world.”
Lindsay Salt, Director of BBC Drama says: “We’re immensely proud to partner with Neil Forsyth and the team to continue the story of The Gold. Millions of viewers across the U.K. were enthralled with its gripping and confident exploration of the fallout from the notorious Brink’s-Mat robbery and, as we saw, there’s still so much more left for DCS Boyce and the team to uncover.”
Filming on series two will begin in January.
It screens in Australia on Paramount+.
