Fans of crime drama McDonald and Dodds will be pleased to hear the show is making a comeback. After launching on ITV earlier this year, ITV has greenlighted the show for another outing. Express.co.uk has the lowdown on the forthcoming season and will be updating this article with any news as it comes in.
When will McDonald and Dodds season 2 be released?
ITV has only just confirmed season two has been commissioned, so there’s no release date at present.
Season one premiered on ITV in March 2020 with two feature-length episodes airing weekly.
The biggest determining factor on when season two could air is coronavirus which has led television and film productions the world over to shut down.
Some productions have tentatively started work again, including the soaps but it’s less clear with some of the dramas.
From the looks of it, the earliest fans could expect to see the show return could be 2021 but there’s much uncertainty at the moment.
Expresss.co.uk has approached ITV for comment on when filming could possibly start.
Who will be in the cast of McDonald and Dodds season 2?
Back in the frame will be the titular duo with Jason Watkins returning as DCI McDonald and Tala Gouveia as DS Dodds.
There are also likely to be some guest cast joining as the crime-fighting pair take on new cases.
ITV executive Huw Kennair Jones said: “We’re delighted with the audience reaction to the first series of McDonald and Dodds.
“The two characters couldn’t be further apart, which is what makes the series so intriguing to watch.
“They shouldn’t have chemistry, but they do, and they work brilliantly in partnership which is testimony to [creator] Robert [Murphy]’s script and Tala and Jason for bringing McDonald & Dodds to life.”
What happened in McDonald and Dodds season 2?
Fans can expect more of the same with the odd-couple do cracking more cases on the streets of Bath.
Is there a trailer for McDonald and Dodds season 2?
There’s no trailer as the recommission has only just been announced, this means nothing has been filmed yet.
However, this article will be updated when anything does drop.
A trailer is likely to be shared closer to broadcast with any teasers coming before then.
Depending on when filming does start, there could be a sneak peek included in the ITV drama trailer for 2021 which the broadcaster shares in the autumn.
