BBC One's hit thriller The Capture to return for a second series

BBC One, Heyday Television and NBCUniversal International Studios' surveillance thriller The Capture will return for a second series.

The first series was a huge hit for BBC One, growing its audience across the series, and was BBC iPlayer's biggest new title of 2019. It has had over 22 million requests on the platform to date.

Holliday Grainger will return as Rachel Carey for the second series, set to follow series one's shock ending that saw Carey seemingly join forces with the shadowy correction team she had previously sought to expose. The Bafta Award-winning Ben Chanan - who created, wrote and directed all six episodes of series one - will also return to helm series two. Further details and casting will be announced in due course.

Holliday Grainger says: "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."

Ben Chanan says: "I am thrilled to be joining forces with the BBC, Heyday and NBCUniversal International Studios again. 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."

Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, says: "The BBC is so proud of The Capture which gripped and enticed audiences last year, and following its launch, grew its audience each week, from episode three onwards, which is no mean feat. We're hugely grateful to Ben, the cast and the entire team at Heyday Television and NBCUniversal for all their work on the series. I cannot wait for audiences to see where Ben is about to take this story next, and we're excited to have Holliday back as the determined Rachel Carey, ready to take on her next challenge."

David Heyman, Executive Producer for Heyday Television, adds: "We could not be more delighted with the fantastic response to The Capture, from audiences and critics alike. Congratulations to our brilliant writer-director Ben Chanan who delivered this thrilling, provocative thriller, which resonated so widely - and to all our outstanding cast and crew. Series two promises to be an even more timely and enthralling conspiracy thriller, we can't wait to share it."

Jeff Wachtel, President, NBCUniversal International Studios, says: "The Capture is what happens when you mix a great vision, a wonderful producer and a supportive network. We are looking forward to working on the next series with Ben, Heyday and our friends at the BBC."

Series one of The Capture is available to stream in full on BBC iPlayer.

Series two of The Capture (6x60') was commissioned by Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, and Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content. It will be produced by Heyday Television and NBCUniversal International Studios, which is part of NBCUniversal Content Studios, for BBC One.

Series two will be written and directed by Ben Chanan. Executive Producers are David Heyman, Rosie Alison and Tom Winchester for Heyday Television, Tom Coan for NBCUniversal International Studios, Ben Irving for BBC One and Ben Chanan. The Producer is Kristian Dench. The series will be distributed by NBCUniversal Global Distribution.
