The Devil's Hour season 2 release date speculation
An official release date for The Devil's Hour season 2 is yet to be confirmed.
The show was renewed for both a second and third season back in November 2022, meaning the series will play out as was originally intended.
Raine previously confirmed plans for the series to operate as a trilogy last year, stating: "When I took the job, what was so attractive to me was that the whole of the first season was written when we started that first day of shooting, so I knew exactly where it was going. I also knew that he [writer Tom Moran] had a season 2 and a season 3 planned out."
The Devil's Hour season 2 cast
Peter Capaldi and Jessica Raine will be back to lead the proceedings in their respective roles of Gideon and Lucy.
Nikesh Patel (DI Ravi Dhillon), Meera Syal (Dr Ruby Bennett), Alex Ferns (DS Nick Holness), Phil Dunster (Mike Stephens) and Barbara Marten (Sylvia Chambers) will also return to The Devil's Hour cast.
As detailed above, Saffron Hocking (Top Boy) has joined the season 2 cast as Sam Boyd, a detective sergeant who worked under Lucy in a past life.
The Devil's Hour season 2 plot: what could happen?
We could see some surprising developments for our key characters in season 2, with Raine teasing some big changes in store for social worker Lucy.
"It's a gift of a role because it will continue to be really challenging, not formulaic at all, a different side of the coin," she explained.
"That's the bit I can't say much about, but oh my God... [the first season] is like one third of a novel, so there's so much scope for more," continued Raine. "It's a really, really good idea and I hope we get to finish it."
The first season ended with Gideon escaping custody to cause more time-warping mayhem, which is sure to have repercussions for Lucy and the other core characters.
Is there a The Devil's Hour season 2 trailer?
Not yet! We're still awaiting word on what the future of the series looks like, so don't expect any new footage until such time as an announcement is made.
