Prey, Chris Lunt’s unashamed, brilliant The Fugitive-style rollercoaster of a three-part chase thriller, was one of the unexpected highlights from last year, and we’ve been rubbing our hands together when it was announced that a second series would be coming to ITV later this year. Now the network has confirmed its transmission date.
This time around the excellent Rosie Cavaliero is joined by Philip Glenister, MyAnna Buring, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Ralph Ineson and Sammy Winward for the second series.
Once again written by Chris Lunt, the new three-part story will see Rosie reprise her role as DS Susan Reinhardt the no-nonsense, hard-working cop now reporting to DCI Mike Ward (Ralph Ineson).
Philip Glenister takes the role of Prison Officer David Murdoch, whose life becomes complicated when on a routine visit to a Manchester hospital with female prisoner Jules Hope (Buring) events spiral out of control. David takes a phone call that will change his life forever. With the life of his heavily pregnant daughter, Lucy (Winward), threatened, David has no alternative but to go on the run and inadvertently becomes the prey.
Prey: Wednesday 9th December, ITV
