Oh TWIST, you guys. The second season of
Gracepoint Broadchurch has already premiered in the United Kingdom, but it’s coming stateside via BBC America on Wednesday, March 4th. In order to sate your appetite (and convince you that torrenting it after it airs overseas is a bad, bad idea — which it IS), the network released a new clip during Saturday’s Television Critic Association Winter Press tour in Pasadena and — hoo boy — is it an emotional doozy.
Naturally, there are many a spoiler about to be unleashed onto the Internet, so proceed with caution (or not at all)! You’ve been warned.
Picking up at the trial of DS Ellie Miller’s husband Joe Miller for the murder of Danny Latimer, the entirety of the second season will largely focus on that. But it will also reopen some old wounds for DS Alec Hardy (a/k/a David Tennant) — namely the oft-mentioned but never explained Sandbrook case that took place before season one.
In the clip below we see that trial as it begins and — trust — what happens in it is a shock to literally everyone (us included).
See what we mean?! What in the what is going on, Joe? Huh? We all know you did it. WE KNOW. You confessed!
Starring David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan, and Arthur Darvill in their original roles, Broadchurch‘s second season will also include Charlotte Rampling, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, James D’Arcy, Eve Myles, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
