The final two of six episodes will air on Sunday, 11 September and Monday, 12 September at 9PM. As well as watching on TV, you’ll be able to watch online on iPlayer.

Holliday Grainger will reprise her role as Detective Inspector Rachel Carey for the second series while Paapa Essiedu (I May Destroy You, The Lazarus Project) will guest star as Isaac Turner, a young rising star MP with ambitions for the very top.

Indira Varma (This Way Up, Game Of Thrones) and Andy Nyman (Hanna, Unforgettable) will also join The Capture for series two.

Meanwhile Ron Perlman, Ben Miles, Lia Williams, Nigel Lindsay, Cavan Clerkin and Ginny Holder will all reprise their roles from series one.

A teaser of the new series shares: “Series two of The Capture will again question if we can really believe what we see. Britain is under siege: hacked news feeds, manipulated media, and interference in politics.

“Entrenched in the UK’s own ‘Correction’ unit, DCI Rachel Carey finds herself in the middle of a new conspiracy – with a new target. But how can she solve this case when she can’t even trust her closest colleagues?

“Escalating from the CCTV thriller of series one, the six-part run features ‘invisible’ assassins, the terrifying rise of deepfake technology, the ever-growing tension between government and Big Tech, and corruption at the heart of the British media.”

Series 2 of The Capture will run for six episodes.
