In good news for anyone who binge-watched all six episodes of surveillance drama The Capture, the nail-biting BBC One show has been confirmed for a second series.

Happily, Strike actress Holliday Grainger will reprise her role as DI Rachel Carey for the second run, which will be penned by The Capture's creator and director, Ben Chanan.

In less good news, it appears that Callum Turner won't be returning to the role of soldier Shaun Emery.

Talking about the series' return, Holliday said: "I'm excited to be joining Ben Chanan and the team for series two of The Capture."

"Ben's meticulously researched world challenges the boundary between possible and probable dark truths and constantly keeps you guessing. I can't wait to explore what he has in store for Rachel Carey next."

The show was a certified hit, and was BBC iPlayer's biggest new title of 2019, receiving over 22 million requests on BBC iPlayer.

Season two will no doubt pick up where series one left off. Fans will remember that (heads up: spoiler incoming) the shock ending saw Carey become a member of the dubious Correction team she had planned to expose.

Chanan hinted that series two will see Carey become immersed in the Correction's shadowy underworld.

"The Capture series two will see Rachel Carey fall deeper into the dizzying world of fakery and disinformation. She has only just scratched the surface of this conspiracy," he said.

If you needed more incentive, producer David Heyman has said that the show's renewal will "be an even more timely and enthralling conspiracy thriller".

Way to ramp up our expectations, eh?

The BBC's drama boss Piers Wenger said: "The BBC is so proud of The Capture which gripped and enticed audiences, and grew its audience each week from episode three - which is no mean feat."

An air date for series two of The Capture is yet to be confirmed, but in the meantime, series one is available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
