It’s been three years since the last time we visited Broadchurch. Both Detective Inspector Alec Hardy and Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller are back on the team at Broadchruch CID after some hopefully recuperative time away when a local woman is sexually assaulted.

Evidence suggests this was not an opportunistic attack; it was planned.

DI Hardy and DS Miller must catch the person responsible or there could well be more such attacks.

Broadchurch S2 - 17 Ellie Testifying

The second season of Broadchurch continues to tell the story of how a young boy’s murder affects the entire coastal town of Broadchurch when the man who confessed to Danny Latimer’s murder suddenly changes his plea to not guilty – forcing everyone to relive the investigation of Danny’s death.

Academy Award nominee Marianne Jean-Baptiste joins the cast as Joe Miller’s defense attorney, while the legendary Charlotte Rampling plays the Crown Prosecutor, Jocelyn Knight. Emmy winner David Tennant and three-time BAFTA winner Olivia Colman return as former police detectives Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller – who have another problem in the person of Claire Ashworth (Eva Myles, Torchwood) – whom Hardy has been hiding in a cottage just outside town – to keep them hopping.

Broadchurch returns to BBC America on Wednesday, March 4th (10/9C). For further details, follow the jump.

Moody Trailer: Broadchurch Season 2!

Season One of Broadchurch was an unexpected jewel – a procedural that paid as much attention to the grief of the family of a murdered boy – and the reaction of the community in which the murder occurred – as it did to the investigation of that murder.

Season Two of the critically acclaimed series comes to BBC America on February 4, 2015 – and it looks like it could be just as involving. Check out the UK Trailer after the jump.

NEW SERIES

BROADCHURCH FOR ITV

EPISODE 2

Broadchurch is a new eight part drama series by Kudos Film and Television for ITV. The star-studded cast includes David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Andrew Buchan, Jodie Whittaker, Vicky McClure, Pauline Quirke, Will Mellor, Arthur Darvill and Carolyn Pickles.

This brand new eight part series is written and created by Chris Chibnall (Law and Order: UK, Doctor Who) and will explore what happens to a small community in Dorset when it suddenly becomes the focus of a police investigation, following the tragic and mysterious death of an eleven year old boy under the glare of the media spotlight.

Bloodied and dirty, Danny Latimer (Oskar McNamara) has been found dead on an idyllic beach surrounded by rocks and a jutting cliff-face from where he may have fallen. Whilst his death remains unresolved, the picturesque seaside town of Broadchurch is at the heart of a major police investigation and a national media frenzy.

Following his stint as the tenth Doctor on Doctor Who – and a satisfyingly tense turn on the miniseries, Spies of Warsaw – David Tennant will be back on American television as by-the-book DI (Detective Inspector) Alec Hardy, a dour, bristly sort whose recent posting to Broadchurch makes him the superior officer to Olivia Colman’s DS (Detective Sergeant) Ellie Miller in Broadchurch (BBC America, Wednesdays, 10/9C).

The eight-episode series is centered around the murder of a young boy, and explores the impact of the murder on the quiet seaside town. Check out the press release, after jump, for more details – including episode taglines and character descriptions. Broadchurch premieres on August 7th.
