BBC Ones The Capture drew a following of 7.7 million people during its first season, making it the most requested new program in 2019. With a handful of first-look images, the show is returning with a fresh narrative sure to entice British fans.
Holliday Grainger is returning to the UK's Corrections unit as she investigates another case, this time on a young British politician and her battle against a series of 'invisible' assassins, including the media and powerful tech corporations. But what exactly is The Captures second series about, and when can we expect to see it?
What Is The Plot of Series Two's Capture?
Shaun Emery's journey came to an abrupt end following the first season of Season One. However, Rachel Carey has plenty of cases related to surveillance manipulation to investigate.
According to the show's official synopsis, Rachel has found herself in the midst of a fresh conspiracy with a new target in the second season.
An investigation into her latest target will be filled with even deeper fake technology, growing government-government tensions, and a corrupt British media.
Who Is The Cast of Series Two of The Capture?
As mentioned previously, Grainger will reprise her role, as will Sons of Anarchys Ron Perlman, Devils Ben Miles, The Crowns Lia Williams, Babylons Cavan Clerkin, MotherFatherSons Ginny Holder, and The Salisbury Poisonings Nigel Lindsay.
When Will The Capture Series Two Be Released?
The Capture will be available on BBC One and iPlayer in August 2022, according to the BBC. Itll most likely launch after August 12, although the final date is yet to be confirmed.

I am worried about what might happen to Isaac after Shaun's death in the first series.
Speaking about the show as a whole, he revealed that the gritty 1970s dramas released following the US Watergate scandal served as an inspiration as well as the increasing difficulty in deciding what to trust online that dominates today.
"Video evidence is one of the most effective methods to convict a criminal." Video fakery is becoming more convincing. What happens if we can no longer trust what we see? he told the BBC.
These questions seemed to be the stuff of hypothetical what if drama when I began writing The Capture two years ago. I believe they still are, but maybe not for long. Just this week, just barely a week passes without a new warning about the possibilities of facial recognition, deep-fakes, or fake news. Perhaps we will soon have to discover new methods to verify the authenticity of video footage.
I learned that when he first began working on The Capture, he was interviewing retired FBI personnel from the United States Homeland Security and the United States Central Intelligence Agency. Those same spymasters now work for CNN. Routinely they criticize a Republican administration, which has professed a love for Wikileaks.
