The BBC has set a UK premiere date for ‘Vigil‘ Season 2, which sees Suranne Jones and Rose Leslie return alongside new cast members Romola Garai, Dougray Scott, and more.
Having spent most of the first season underwater in a submarine, in a brand-new investigation, Amy Silva (Jones) and Kirsten Longacre (Leslie) look to the skies as they enter the secret world of drone warfare to catch a killer. Following multiple deaths at a Scottish weapons test, the duo are tasked with finding out the cause. Entering the closed ranks of the air force in Scotland and the Middle East, the pair face the deadly warfare of tomorrow as they fight for their own uncertain future.
As previously announced, ‘Vigil’ season two also stars Gary Lewis (His Dark Materials, Granite Harbour) who returns as DSU Robertson, alongside new cast members Romola Garai (Becoming Elizabeth, The Hour), Dougray Scott (Crime, Enigma), Amir El-Masry (SAS Rogue Heroes, Limbo), David Elliot (The Liberator, Bulletproof), Chris Jenks (Sex Education, Karen Pirie), Tommy Sim’aan (The Midwich Cuckoos, Doctors), Oscar Salem (House of the Dragon, Des), Jonathan Ajayi (Noughts + Crosses) and Hiba Medina in her first major TV role.

It is written and created by Tom Edge, with episodes by Maryam Hamidi, James Smythe and Ryan O’Sullivan and Matilda Wnek.
