The Team returns to Walter Presents for Season 2
James R | On 15, Oct 2019
The Team is getting back together this November for a second season on Walter Presents.
The hit series, which debuted on the All 4 channel in 2017, was the international detective crossover event of the year, withDanish homicide detective Harald Bjørn (Lars Mikkelsen), Belgian homicide detective Alicia Verbeek (Veerle Baetens), and German Federal Criminal Police superintendent Jackie Müller (Jasmin Gerat) teaming up to solve crimes across borders.
Season 2 keeps the same premise but swaps in a different cast. When seven people are shot dead at an illegal immigrant halfway house in Denmark, Europol’s new Joint Investigation Team brings detectives from three different countries together to track down the perpetrators before international disaster strikes.
The victims include a Caliphate Union informant for the Belgian secret service. The only survivor of the massacre in Denmark is a young Syrian woman, Malu, who escapes into the vast marshlands. Danish Inspector Nelly Winther, German Investigator Gregor Weiss and Belgian secret service agent Paula Liekens are thrown in the deep end and must work together as the new Joint Investigation Team to find Malu. The little evidence available suggests a terrorist motive; an attack by the Caliphate Union could be imminent. But without the missing witness Malu, it’s near impossible to prove and prevent. Searching for her brings the team to an unexpected path leading deep into the art underworld that intersects with organised terrorism more than anyone could have imagined…
The cast includes award winning Jürgen Vogel and Walter Present’s own Lynn Van Royen from Hotel Beau Sejour. The series will be broadcast weekly from 1st November on More4, with episodes available on-demand on Walter Presents after broadcast.
