One of the highlights of 2014 was Sally Wainwright’s Happy Valley – that intense, gritty and harrowing series that won all kinds of awards. We know that it’s coming back for a second series in early 2016, and we do know some plotlines (see here for those), but we haven’t seen yet are images. Until now.
This new image sees a shorn James Norton’s villain Tommy Lee Boyce behind bars, and it’s interesting to see him back in the new series. Sally Wainwright has opted to weave him into the second run, but in an intriguing way – he attracts the attention of an intense female fan on the outside. With Catherine Cawood (Sarah Lancashire) battling a new foe, could Boyce’s relationship with his new fan mean that he has an influence outside of the prison?
Shirley Henderson, Kevin Doyle, Julie Hesmondhalgh, Katherine Kelly and Amelia Bullmore all join the cast for series two.
Look out for it in the first half of 2016.
