‘We Hunt Together’: Colin Morgan, Nico Mirallegro, Angus Imrie & Rik Makarem Join Season 2
Filming on Season 2 of UKTV Alibi’s ‘We Hunt Together‘ has begun shooting in Wales today, and has added four new faces who will join the returning cast.
Season 2 sees Eve Myles return as DS Lola Franks (‘Torchwood’, ‘Broadchurch’), alongside Babou Ceesay as DI Jackson Mendy (‘Wolf’, ‘Dark Money’) and Hermione Corfield as Freddy Lane (‘Sea Fever’, ‘The Halcyon’). Joining the line-up for series two are Colin Morgan (‘Merlin’, ‘Humans’), Nico Mirallegro (‘Our Girl’, ‘Rillington Place’), Angus Imrie (‘The Crown’, ‘Industry’) and Rik Makarem (‘Emmerdale’, ‘Casualty’).
Produced by BBC Studios and written by Gaby Hull (‘Cheat’, ‘Two Weeks To Live’), series one of the cat and mouse thriller introduced two star-crossed killers, Baba (Dipo Ola) and Freddy (Corfield) who go on the run from the police after committing a series of brutal murders. Mismatched detectives DS Lola Franks (Myles) and DI Jackson Mendy (Ceesay) were assigned to the case and determined to stop the deadly duo in their tracks.
Series two kicks off ten months after series one’s dramatic finale and, after claiming to be a hapless bystander to Baba’s murder spree, Freddy has a degree of notoriety. Despite this new fame, Freddy is listless and, to appease the darkness inside her, is on the hunt for a new partner in crime. However, as people around Freddy start dying, it soon appears that someone already has the femme fatale in their sights. When the body count racks up, Jackson and Lola realise a new dangerous game of lust, obsession and murder has begun.
Morgan will play Liam, the ghost-writer penning Freddy’s new book about her ordeal with Baba, while Imrie will play Freddy’s devoted childhood friend Henry. Mirallegro steps into the role of Robert and Makarem as James, both of whom meet the enigmatic Freddy at a speed dating event.
Additional returning cast includes Vicki Pepperdine (‘Getting On’, ‘The Trouble with Maggie Cole’) as DSI Susan Smart, Babirye Bukilwa (‘Babylon’, ‘Hot Pepper’) as DC Dominique Parks and Sharlene Whyte (‘Small Axe’, ‘Waterloo Road’) as Gil Mendy.
‘We Hunt Together’ is produced by BBC Studios and executive producers are Alexander Lamb and Priscilla Parish. The six-part series will be directed by Jonathan Teplitzky and Rebecca Rycroft and will be produced by Jane Dauncey. BBC Studios is handling distribution internationally.
‘We Hunt Together‘ airs on Alibi in the UK and Showtime in the USA.
