The brooding Baptiste will be returning for a brand new mystery next year - and it's set to be one of his darkest yet.
The troubled detective, who was first introduced to audiences in The Missing, finds himself spiralling into a dark place in the new series after suffering from a deeply personal tragedy - turning to alcohol to numb the pain.
Looking for a new case, and pushing wife Celia away in the process, Baptiste latches on to a mystery after British Ambassador Emma Chambers (played by Killing Eve's Fiona Shaw) asks for his help when her family vanish.
The journey to find Emma's husband and two sons take Baptiste to the heart of Budapest's underworld, with Baptiste now having to grapple against his failing mental state as well as the growing interest in the case.
Things are only made all the more difficult for the detective as he is forced to pair with a Hungarian police force he fails to trust. But will be manage to keep his head above water and crack another tough case?
Baptiste is returning to the BBC after the success of the first season, which aired in February 2019.
Tom Hollander starred as Edward Stratton in the series, who requests Baptiste's help after his niece goes missing.
The case took Baptiste right to the heart of a sex trafficking ring at the heart of Europe.
Baptiste was created by brothers Harry and Jack Williams, who have created a number of suspenseful thrillers including ITV's Liar, as well as 2019's The Widow and Cheat.
In other TV news, we're set to see a glut on true-crime dramas in the New Year.
