‘Broadchurch’ Season 2: David Tennant, Olivia Colman to Return

David Tennant and Olivia Colman will return to “Broadchurch” for season two, British producer ITV announced Monday. Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan and Arthur Darvill will also reprise their roles for the second season of the hit drama, which will commence filming in the U.K. in the coming days.

BBC America aired season one of the critically acclaimed procedural Stateside, while Fox is producing an American adaptation called “Gracepoint,” set to premiere as a 10-episode “event series” this fall.

“We’re delighted ‘Broadchurch’ is back in production, but we’re remaining tight-lipped about how the story develops,” said Steve November, ITV’s director of drama. “Suffice to say (creator Chris Chibnall) has delivered as always, and the scripts are just as exciting as the first series.”

“Broadchurch” is exec produced by Chibnall for Imaginary Friends and Jane Featherstone on behalf of Kudos, a Shine Group company. Producer is Richard Stokes, who also produced the first season. James Strong will direct episodes one and two of the new season.

As well as rejoining the British original, Tennant will reprise his role in “Gracepoint” alongside Anna Gunn, who takes over for Colman in the remake. Nick Nolte and Jacki Weaver have also signed on for the U.S. version, which relocates the drama to a seaside California town, where a media frenzy spurred by a homicide upends the lives of a sprawling cast of characters.

A U.S. premiere date for “Broadchurch” season two has yet to be announced.
