Guilt 2021 release date and cast

Series 2 of Guilt has arrived on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer

Written by Neil Forsyth (Eric, Ernie And Me, Bob Servant), series 1 of Guilt aired on both BBC Two and on BBC Scotland in 2019.

Season 2 was confirmed in 2020 with a new four-part series to air in 2021.

The first series starred Mark Bonnar and Jamie Sives as two disparate brothers, united by guilt when they accidentally run over and kill an old man on a darkened street. Other cast included Emun Elliot, Bill Paterson, Sian Brooke, Ruth Bradley and Ellie Haddington.

Series 2 will feature Mark Bonnar as Max McCall, Sara Vickers as Erin, Stuart Bowman as Roy Lynch and Emun Elliot as Kenny.

Also starring in the new episodes are Phyllis Logan, Greg McHugh, Sandy McDade, Henry Pettigrew, Rochelle Neil and Robin Laing.

Guilt series 2 airs Thursday nights at 9PM on BBC Two while the full series is available to watch online now via BBC iPlayer.

Mark Bonnar said: “Come and join us in an Edinburgh full of twists, turns and deception. Guilt is back”.

Patrick Holland, Controller, BBC Two, said previously of series 2: “Neil Forsyth’s Guilt was a dark gem in last year’s schedules and I am delighted that the team is returning for a new series.

“It was a real treat to have Neil’s sharp writing and the wonderful performances, weaving a brilliant tale of lies, deception and skulduggery.

“Audiences across the UK await series two with relish.”

Steve Carson, Head of Multi-Platform Commissioning, BBC Scotland, added: “Guilt was, without a doubt, one of the highlights of our year on BBC Scotland and we’re thrilled to bring it back for a second series.

“Neil Forsyth’s ability to marry comedy and drama together and the brilliant cast that brought his scripts to life made for compelling viewing and made Guilt a must-see moment on TV and BBC iPlayer.

“With guilt finally catching up with the characters at the end of the last series, who knows what direction Neil will take them in the new series?”

Series 1 of Guilt is currently available to watch online via Amazon Prime Video.

A DVD of the first series has also been released.
