THE GOLD 'SET TO RETURN' FOR SECOND SERIES ON BBC ONE
The BBC are reportedly set to commission a second series of The Gold, following the success of the first series which concludes on BBC One this Sunday (19th March).
The second series - which has not been announced by the BBC - is to reportedly focus on "all crooks involved in the £26million Brink's-Mat gold heist of 1983". The gripping series is inspired by the iconic true story and the decades-long chain of events that followed.
The cast of Series 1 included Hugh Bonneville alongside Jack Lowden, Dominic Cooper, Charlotte Spencer, Tom Cullen, Emun Elliott, Sean Harris, Ellora Torchia and Stefanie Martini. The Sun reports the second series could focuse on the life of Charlie Wilson, one of the Great Train Robbers.
A source told The Sun: "This will be music to the ears of fans, some of whom have already seen all the episodes on iPlayer. Although every channel and streamer likes to revisit true crime stories, The Gold is one which seems to have captured people’s imagination...
They continued: "Not only is it a nostalgia trip filled with Eighties cars, clothes and music, it provides a more in-depth look at the background of the criminals involved. Now they’re going to explore even more characters involved in the original crime."
The Gold is available now on BBC iPlayer.
