10 first look images have been released from the second series of BBC One's hit drama Vigil which returns later this year.

Suranne Jones and Rose Leslie are returning as Amy Silva and Kirsten Longacre in the second series of BBC One's hit drama Vigil and this time they're looking to the skies as they enter the secret world of drone warfare to catch a killer.

Following multiple deaths at a Scottish weapons test, Silva and Longacre are tasked with finding out the cause. Entering the closed ranks of the air force in Scotland and the Middle East, the pair face the deadly warfare of tomorrow as they fight for their own uncertain future.

As previously announced, the second series of Vigil also stars Gary Lewis who returns as DSU Robertson, alongside new cast members Romola Garai, Dougray Scott, Amir El-Masry, David Elliot, Chris Jenks, Tommy Sim’aan, Oscar Salem, Jonathan Ajayi and Hiba Medina in her first major TV role.

Written and created by Tom Edge, the new six-part series was filmed in Scotland and Morocco and has once again been made by World Productions, with episodes by Maryam Hamidi, James Smythe and Ryan O’Sullivan and Matilda Wnek.

Series two was directed by Andy De Emmony and Josh Agnew, produced by Marcus Wilson and executive produced by Simon Heath and Jake Lushington for World Productions, Gaynor Holmes for the BBC, and Tom Edge, with George Aza-Selinger as associate producer.

The first series of Vigil was the UK’s most-watched new drama launch since Bodyguard in 2018, attracting over 13 million viewers.
