What to expect from series 2

Series one of the cat and mouse thriller introduced two star-crossed killers, Baba (Dipo Ola) and Freddy (Corfield) who go on the run from the police after committing a series of brutal murders.

Mismatched detectives DS Lola Franks (Myles) and DI Jackson Mendy (Ceesay) were assigned to the case and determined to stop the deadly duo in their tracks.

A teaser for the latest instalment shares: “Series two kicks off ten months after series one’s dramatic finale and, after claiming to be a hapless bystander to Baba’s murder spree, Freddy has a degree of notoriety.

“Despite this new fame, Freddy is listless and, to appease the darkness inside her, is on the hunt for a new partner in crime.

“However, as people around Freddy start dying, it soon appears that someone already has the femme fatale in their sights. When the body count racks up, Jackson and Lola realise a new dangerous game of lust, obsession and murder has begun.”

Morgan will play Liam, the ghost-writer penning Freddy’s new book about her ordeal with Baba, while Imrie will play Freddy’s devoted childhood friend Henry.

Mirallegro steps into the role of Robert and Makarem as James, both of whom meet the enigmatic Freddy at a speed dating event.
