Sky Atlantic Sets January UK TV Premiere Date For ‘Tin Star’ Season 2
Sky Atlantic has set a January 2019 premiere date for the return Tim Roth as the now ex-Police Chief, Jim Worth, in Season 2 of ‘Tin Star‘.
Season 1 of the drama followed police chief Jim Worth (Roth) who moves to peace and quiet of the remote Rocky Mountains with his beloved wife and children, as he finally feels he found the life he was searching for. However, the tranquillity was short-lived as the arrival of huge numbers of workers from a new oil refinery led to a wave of drugs, prostitution, organised crime, and a murder, which hit Jim hard. His obsessive quest to find the truth behind the mysterious killing drove a revelatory story about love, corruption, grief and the all-consuming nature of revenge.
Season 2 picks up after Jim’s world is left destroyed by the chaos that had followed (and his alcoholic alter ego, Jack Devlin) from the UK, leaving our unlikely hero cut off in the remote Rockies wilderness with his grieving and shell-shocked family struggling to come to terms with their ordeal. Seeking refuge from her own parents, Anna (Abigail Lawrie) is taken in by the God-fearing Nickel family, headed up by Pastor Johan (John Lynch) his wife Sarah (Anamaria Marinca) and daughter Rosa (Jenessa Grant), and hidden with the Ammonites – a religious community close to Little Big Bear. However the peaceful prairie family are harbouring secrets of their own and it’s not long before Anna is forced to seek her father’s help, as an altogether more hellish threat emerges. If Jim is to find a way to save his family, atone for his sins he must form an uneasy alliance in the battle for forgiveness…
Created by Rowan Joffe and produced by Kudos for Sky Atlantic, Christina Hendricks, Genevieve O’Reilly, John Lynch, Anamaria Marinca and Jenessa Grant complete the all-star line-up.
‘Tin Star‘ Season 2 premieres on Sky Atlantic from Thursday, 24th January 2019 (exact time TBC). For those of you wanting to catch up with Season 1, Channel 4 are airing that on Sunday nights at 10pm.
