THE DRY: FIRST LOOK IMAGES FROM SECOND SERIES OF ITV COMEDY DRAMA

ITV release a captivating first look at the cast of the highly anticipated second series of The Dry, which launches exclusively on ITVX from Thursday 14th March.



The 8-part comedy drama is produced by Oscar nominated production company Element Pictures (Poor Things, Normal People, The Gallows Pole), a Fremantle company for ITVX and RTÉ, in association with Fís Eireann/Screen Ireland, Coimisiún na Meán and ITV Studios.



Written by BAFTA-nominated screenwriter Nancy Harris (Dates) and directed by Paddy Breathnach (Viva, Rosie), the compelling images reveal a budding new romance brewing for Shiv (Roisin Gallagher) with newcomer Alex (Sam Keeley) and feature an anxious and forlorn Tom (Ciarán Hinds), as a man on the verge of losing everything.


A new friendship arises for Bernie (Pom Boyd) with her sponsor Billy (Thommas Kane Byrne), and we see a return to home comforts for Ant (Adam Richardson) and Caroline (Siobhán Cullen).




The storyline picks up seven months on from the events of the first series, and we now meet the Sheridans in their new normal. To all outward appearances, it seems like the family is relatively content: Shiv’s been sober, celibate, and solvent for six months, Ant has hung onto his job at the estate agents and his relationship with Max, and Caroline’s making up for a lost time by shagging everyone she meets on Tinder. So far, so normal… Or is it?



After all, how normal is it for three grown adults to still be living at home with their parents? And are the Sheridan’s really happy with this new status quo, or have they just rearranged their dysfunction and found another groove of denial to fit into?


Shiv is determined to get sobriety right this time, to cut the toxic influences out of her life for good. But what if the biggest threat to Shiv’s stability turns out to be closer to home? Giving up alcohol is one thing…but what about giving up your family?


The Dry S2 is an 8 x 30 mins drama commissioned by ITV’s Head of Scripted Comedy Nana Hughes for ITVX.
