Along with information about the read-through, ITV also released some photos featuring Eve, David Tennant, Olivia Coleman, Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan, Arthur Darvill, Charlotte Rampling, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, and James D’Arcy. They also confirmed that information about plot lines, and new characters will be released after filming.
Details of the new characters and storylines for the second series won’t be revealed during filming as the cast and crew remain tight lipped about how the drama develops.
Filming of the new series will be underway later this month in Dorset and North Somerset and creator and writer Chris Chibnall has appealed to the media and members of the public who might observe filming to help keep the secrets of Broadchurch.
Broadchurch will be executive produced by Chris Chibnall (The Great Train Robbery, Torchwood) for Imaginary Friends and Jane Featherstone (Utopia, The Hour, Spooks) on behalf of Kudos, a Shine Group company. The Producer is Richard Stokes (Silk, Law & Order: UK) who also produced the first series. James Strong, who directed 5 episodes of the first series including episode one, will be directing episodes one and two of this new series.
