Night and Day returns to Walter Presents for Season 2
James R | On 14, Oct 2019
Spanish thriller Night and Day is returning to Walter Presents for a second season.
Not your typical detective crime drama, the intricate thriller looks at homicide investigations from a unique perspective and delves into the dark corners of humanity. Continuing the themes of murder and torture from Season 1, Season 2 has political and legal corruption at its core, as the body of a judge embroiled in conspiracy and blackmail is delivered to forensic pathologist Sara Grau and her team at the morgue.
Sara is now happily living with old time friend, new time lover Aitor and his daughter, but her ex-husband Lluis is still on her case, only now realising what he’s lost. But it’s about to get a whole lot darker for the pathologist; not only does this former judge turn up in her office, but when a group of teenagers accidentally find a child’s skeleton in some abandoned caves, the team’s autopsy also suggests that an unsolved and disturbing murder was committed 25 years ago. Sara finds herself re-connected with a forgotten episode from her own childhood, drawing her in deeper than she had ever imagined.
Night and Day boasts a multi award-winning cast of Catalan actors, including Clara Segura, who won Best Actress at the Zapping awards for her role.
“This shadowy study of dual desires and disturbing deaths is dark and deeply compelling,” we wrote in our review of Season 1.
Season 2 will premiere on Channel 4 at 11pm on 20th October, with the full box set available on Walter Presents via All 4 immediately after broadcast.
