BBC renews Baptiste for a second series

Tchéky Karyo will return as retired police investigator, Julien Baptiste, and will be joined by Fiona Shaw for a brand-new gripping case which will take viewers into Budapest’s secretive and corrupt underworld.

Julien Baptiste is not the man we knew before. After enduring a horrific personal tragedy, Julien has pushed his wife Celia away and is looking for any distraction – whether that be the bottom of a bottle or a new case – to consume him.

When British Ambassador Emma Chambers’ (Shaw) whole family disappears whilst on a skiing holiday in the Hungarian mountains, Baptiste immerses himself into Emma’s world, committed to finding her husband and two sons. However, when the case turns into something far more brutal and desperate, Julien must navigate a Hungarian police force he doesn’t trust and unrelenting media interest who are hungry for information on such a high-profile international case.

Julien must remain rational in the face of chaos in order to find Emma’s family. Will he be able to solve his most complex case yet?

Tchéky Karyo, says: “I am so excited and proud of Harry and Jack [Williams] for their new audacious story in Hungary. I can’t wait to prepare for Julien’s new adventure and for the emotions that he is about to go through. I’m looking forward to sharing this incredible journey with an amazing cast.”

    Looking forward and hopeful they can make more of it this time. That first season was ridiculous but I do like the character.
