KIN: IRISH CRIME DRAMA RETURNS TO BBC ONE FOR SECOND SERIES
The BBC has confirmed that the second series of Kin will launch soon on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
Produced by BRON Studios (Joker) and Headline Pictures (The Man in the High Castle), the BBC has acquired season two of this gripping, character-driven Irish crime drama from FIFTH SEASON (Killing Eve, Severance, Tokyo Vice).
It will see the return of a star-studded cast including Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones), Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Clare Dunne (The Last Duel), Francis Magee (The Witcher), Sam Keeley (The Cured), Maria Doyle Kennedy (Outlander), Emmett J. Scanlan (Peaky Blinders), and Yasmin Seky.
The critically acclaimed eight-part series continues the story of the Kinsella family, who are now at the top of the crime game in Dublin, but their triumph has incurred the enmity of an enemy even more dangerous than Eamon Cunningham, and where once there were unbreakable bonds of blood and family, there is only suspicion, distrust, and resentment.
Head of Programme Acquisition Sue Deeks says: "All I will say is if you found the first series exciting and engrossing, just wait until you see the twists and turns in series two!"
Jennifer Ebell, EVP of EMEA Sales and Acquisitions at FIFTH SEASON, adds: "The Kinsellas are back and the stakes are higher than ever. Season two of this family crime drama is explosive and we are pleased the BBC joins the growing number of our international partners."
Transmission details will be announced in due course.
