British drama Save Me was one of our favourites last year, and the Lennie James-starring series is coming back soon for a second run.
The first series told the story of Nelson ‘Nelly’ Rowe (James) and his search for Jody, his missing daughter. It also boasted an incredible ensemble cast that included Suranne Jones, Stephen Graham, Thomas Coombes, Kerry Godliman, Nadine Marshall, Susan Lynch and Jason Flemyng.
Now we know it has begun read-throughs for series two.
As the tweet above said, the outstanding actress Lesley Manville has joined the cast for series two.
“I couldn’t be more delighted to be joining this phenomenal series”, Manville said. “Save Me was a major highlight of 2018, a testament to Lennie James’ writing and acting and the exceptional cast and creative team.”
Manville will play Jennifer Charles, the wife of Gideon Charles. Jennifer is forced to make an almost impossible choice that will place her in direct conflict with Nelly, following the return of the vulnerable girl, Grace (Olive Gray), who Nelly rescued whilst searching for his own daughter Jody.
The show’s second season picks up 14 months after the events of season one, which saw Nelly left devastated after his desperate search for Jody was unsuccessful. He had been dragged into a dangerous underworld, taken risks that had proved precarious for himself and those closest to him and challenged Nelly to re-evaluate many of the decisions he had made about his life, all to find Jody. Now, fourteen months down the road, is he still looking? What hope is there of finding Jody? And if new evidence were to emerge, what would it force Nelly and those close to him to do next?
