Report: Series two of Craith to begin production next month

We’ve been waiting for confirmation from S4C on whether there will be a series two of Craith (Hidden), the Welsh-language crime drama set in Snowdonia that proved to be a huge hit with readers of this site.

From the makers of Y Gwyll (Hinterland), it featured Sian Reese-Williams as DI Cadi John, who, with DS Owen Vaughan, is shaken by the discovery of the body of a young woman on the banks of a river. As they discover the girl’s identity, it seems she may be just one of a number of young women to have gone missing in the area.

Now a report has surfaced on Welsh newspaper The Daily Post, which relays casting requests for a second series. More significantly, the story says that production on series two is to begin next month and continue until May in the north Wales area.

There has been no word from the production team or S4C, but, of course, as soon as we get confirmation we’ll bring you the news.

    That’s great news!

    Excellent news! What’s happened to Hinterland, it’s been a few years since the last series.

      Hinterland came full circle to a fairly natural end point, I thought. Not that they couldn’t have done more but that was a reasonable place to stop.

      (All three series were given crucial EU funding. So that probably had an impact when deciding about a possible continuation.)

    Where will Stella B be shown in the U.S. at the end of the month?

      It’s coming to Sundance Now on the 31st.

    I found it unwatchable. Far, far too dark.
    And slow…slow.
    Haven’t we had enough yet of the perils of nubile young women? Is that the only crime available?
