Sky Atlantic have announced that The Tunnel will be returning in 2016 for a second season.
The Tunnel 2: Debris is an original story, re-uniting unlikely Anglo-French duo Karl Roebuck, a seasoned British detective played by International Emmy Award winning actor Stephen Dillane and his French counterpart Elise Wasserman, portrayed by Clémence Poésy.
When a passenger plane mysteriously crashes into the English Channel killing everyone on board, Roebuck and Wasserman are sent to investigate on behalf of their respective countries. With the emotions and tribulations of their previous case behind them, the pair are once again thrust into a joint investigation which will test their unlikely alliance.
Joining The Tunnel’s acclaimed production team for the second series are director Mike Barker and producer Julian Stevens. Ben Richards returns as lead writer of the Sky Atlantic and CANAL+ co-production from Kudos and Shine France Films.
