With its primary question of whether or not court-used CCTV footage had been manipulated with, The Capture had us all talking in late 2019. Another season of the BBC drama is in the works, and some of the cast members will be known to lovers of great TV dramas.
I May Destroy You’s Paapa Essiedu is the first person on the list. He’ll share the major role with Holliday Grainger in the series. His character hasn’t been identified officially, but we know he’s a politician with dreams to reach the top.
“I’m very happy to be joining The Capture,” Essiedu said upon joining. This amazing cast and team will accomplish wonders with Ben Chanan’s new and prophetic storey, and I can’t wait to see what they do with it.”
Both Indira Varma and Andy Nyman have been cast in season 2, although we don’t know what they’ll be doing yet. Ron Perlman, Nigel Lindsay, Ginny Holder, Ben Miles, Lia Williams, and Cavan Clerkin will all be returning from season 1 of the show. According to the BBC, filming on The Capture will begin “imminently.” Hopefully, we’ll have more information on the project in the future.
