Hopefully one of the stars of the Apple TV+ series Criminal Record isn’t about to get a slap on the wrist from the streaming company, as Cush Jumbo revealed during an interview over the weekend that Season 2 is in development.

From BAFTA Award nominee Paul Rutman (‘Vera’, ‘Indian Summers’), ‘Criminal Record’ is a powerful, character-driven police drama set in the heart of contemporary London. Season one begins with an anonymous phone call that draws two brilliant detectives into a confrontation over an old murder case – one a young woman in the early stages of her career (Cush Jumbo – ‘The Good Wife’, ‘The Good Fight’, ‘The Beast Must Die’), the other a well-connected man determined to protect his legacy (Peter Capaldi – ‘Doctor Who’, ‘The Thick of It’). The series touches on issues of race, institutional failure and the quest to find common ground in a polarised Britain.

During an interview on ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen’ on Sunday night, Andy asked if Cush knew if the drama had a second season coming, to which she replied “There will be, yeah.” Should be noted, Apple TV+ has yet to announce a renewal officially.

Season one of the eight-part series starred Capaldi as Detective Chief Inspector Daniel Hegarty and Jumbo as Detective Sergeant June Lenker. They were joined by Charlie Creed-Miles (‘King Arthur,’ ‘Wild Bill’), Dionne Brown (‘Queenie’), Shaun Dooley (‘Official Secret,’ ‘The Woman in Black,’ ‘The Awakening’), Stephen Campbell Moore (‘The Bank Job,’ ‘Masters of the Air’), Zoë Wanamaker (‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,’ ‘My Week with Marilyn’), Rasaq Kukoyi (‘Andor,’ ‘His House’), Maisie Ayres, Aysha Kala (‘The Undeclared War’), BAFTA TV Award winner Cathy Tyson (‘Help’) and Tom Moutchi (‘Famalam,’ ‘The Hustle’).

Created by BAFTA Award nominee Paul Rutman (‘Vera’, ‘Indian Summers’), the drama is produced for Apple TV+ by Tod Productions and STV Studios, and executive produced by BAFTA Scotland Award winner Elaine Collins (‘Shetland,’ ‘Vera’), Rutman, Capaldi and Jumbo. The series is directed by BAFTA Award winner Jim Loach (‘Save Me Too,’ ‘Oranges and Sunshine’) and Shaun James Grant (‘The Devil’s Hour’).

Criminal Record‘ Season 1 can be streamed on Apple TV+ right now. If you want to keep track of this or any other show, you can add them via our Never Miss system, and you’ll be notified when it gets a UK premiere date.
