NEW YORK - January 27, 2023 - Screeners are now available for the second season of Acorn TV's Original gritty Irish crime thriller, Bloodlands. Starring award-winning Irish actor James Nesbitt (The Missing, Cold Feet) as DCI Tom Brannick, this gripping 6-episode season follows Brannick as he's pulled into a desperate hunt for a treasure that's been hidden since the dark days of Goliath. Bloodlands Season 2 will premiere on Monday, February 6 with the first two episodes, followed by two episodes per week on Mondays through February 20 on Acorn TV, AMC Networks' acclaimed streamer devoted to British and international television.
This season DCI Tom Brannick (Nesbitt) returns as the murder of a crooked accountant unravels a trail of greed that threatens to expose the true identity of the legendary assassin codenamed Goliath. Between Tom and redemption stands the accountant's widow, Olivia (Victoria Smurfit), whose intentions may be far from innocent. They will scheme together, keeping each other in knife point's reach, as they try to solve the riddle the accountant left behind. As they become more immersed in the puzzle of each other, Tom and Olivia will draw in Tom's fellow officers DS Niamh McGovern (Charlene McKenna, Ripper Street), DCS Jackie Twomey (Lorcan Cranitch, Cracker) and DC "Birdy" Bird (Chris Walley), as well as his daughter, Izzy (Lola Pettigrew), until deceit and betrayal build to a shattering climax.
Bloodlands' executive producers are award-winning showrunner Jed Mercurio (creator and producer of two of UK's highest-rated dramas, Bodyguard and Line of Duty), Jimmy Mulville (Episodes) and Mark Redhead (The Secret, Bloody Sunday) for HTM Television and Tommy Bulfin and Tom Lazenby for the BBC.
