The new drama comes from The Missing creators Harry and Jack Williams. But this time, Julien and his wife Celia (Anastasia Hille) are on a visit to Amsterdam when the Chief of Police – who also happens to be Baptiste’s old girlfriend – seeks out his help to solve a very tricky case.
The French detective is “rapidly embroiled in a case that looks beyond the beautiful streets, canals and houses of Amsterdam to the seamy underworld beneath.”
Harry and Jack Williams said: “We are so pleased to welcome Jessica Raine to our brilliant cast; her talent and commitment are perfect for Genevieve and we’re really excited to see what she does with the character.”
Further casting has also been announced, with actors including Alec Secareanu, Clare Calbraith, Nicholas Woodeson and Talisa Garcia taking part in the spin-off series. Details of their characters have yet to be announced.
Filming is set to take place in Antwerp, Ghent, Amsterdam and Deal in Kent.
