Sherwood, the gripping crime drama set in Nottinghamshire, has some good news about Sherwood Season 2. Sherwood has been renewed for a second season with six new hour-long episodes, all written by James Graham once again. The show, which follows a group of residents who are linked by a deadly shooting, was a hit with critics and viewers alike, and we can’t wait to see what happens next.
But when will Sherwood season 2 be released? Who will be in the cast? And what will the plot be about? Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming season of Sherwood.
Sherwood Season 2 Release Date: When will it air?
BBC‘s Sherwood season 2 has not been given an official release date yet, but we do know that filming is due to take place in 2023, so it’s likely to expect the new episodes by the end of next year. The first season aired in September 2021, so it’s possible that the second season will follow a similar schedule.
Sherwood Season 2 Trailer
Unfortunately, we have a very long wait before we see a teaser or any new footage. But you can watch the trailer for Season 1 on YouTube to refresh your memory.
Sherwood Season 2 Cast: Who will be in it?
Casting for the upcoming episodes is yet to be confirmed, but we hope to see some familiar faces return from the first season. The main cast included David Morrissey as Ian St Clair, a wealthy businessman whose son was killed in the shooting; Joanne Froggatt as Sarah Hughes, a nurse who was also shot and left paralysed; Robert Glenister as Richard Spence, a former police officer who was revealed to be a spy cop; Claire Rushbrook as Cathy St Clair, Ian’s wife who had a secret past; Adeel Akhtar as Asif Kamali, a taxi driver who witnessed the shooting; and Phil Davis as Frank Fisher, a retired miner who was also involved in the incident.
Of course, there could also be some new characters introduced in the second season, depending on the plot and the case that will be explored. We’ll update this article as soon as we have more information on the casting.
Sherwood Season 2 Plot: What will it be about?
The plot of Sherwood season 2 is also yet to be revealed, but we can expect another gripping and complex story that will keep us on the edge of our seats. The first season ended with a shocking twist that revealed that Richard Spence was not the only spy cop in Sherwood, and that there were others who had infiltrated various groups and organisations over the years. Could this be the main focus of the second season? Or will there be a new central case that will link the characters together?
There are definitely threads to pull with the characters we’ve met though. For starters Ian St Clair’s wife Cathy was revealed to be in the Witness Protection Programme after she and her mother fled her violent father. Could that somehow become public knowledge? And how will Ian react to finding out the truth about his wife’s past?
Also, there are still a couple of spy cops on the loose. How long will they be able to hide their real identities? Or are there more than we realise? And what are their motives and agendas? Will they face justice for their actions?
We can’t wait to find out more about Sherwood season 2 and see how the story unfolds. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting show.
Sherwood is a six-part series that follows the investigation of two shocking murders that shatter a small mining village in Nottinghamshire. The killings expose the deep divisions and secrets that have been simmering since the miners’ strike of 1984, and force two rival detectives to work together to catch the killer.
The show is inspired by real events that happened in 2004, when two unrelated people were killed in the Sherwood Forest area. James Graham, who grew up in a similar village, has used his personal experience and research to create a compelling and authentic story that explores post-industrial Britain’s social and political issues.
The cast is superb, featuring some of the best actors in British TV. David Morrissey plays DCS Ian St Clair, a local cop who has a personal connection to the victims and the community. Lesley Manville plays Julie Jackson, the widow of one of the victims and a former union activist. Robert Glenister plays DI Kevin Salisbury, a Met officer who clashes with Ian over their different approaches and histories. The supporting cast includes Kevin Doyle, Claire Rushbrook, Lorraine Ashbourne, Terence Maynard, Perry Fitzpatrick, Andrea Lowe, Philip Jackson, Clare Holman, Adam Hugill, Pip Torrens, Adeel Akhtar, Bally Gill, Joanne Froggatt, Nadine Marshall, Don Gilet, Sunetra Sarker, Ace Bhatti, Lindsay Duncan, Jonathan Harden, Christopher Fairbank, Stephen Tompkinson, Mark Addy and Mark Frost.
Sherwood is a gripping and gritty thriller that keeps you guessing until the end. It also has moments of humour and heart that show the resilience and humanity of the people who live in these ‘Red Wall’ towns. It’s a timely and relevant drama reflecting modern Britain’s realities and challenges.
