The final episode of Long Call aired on the 28th of November on ITV answering fans’ questions on who killed Simon Walden. This series is an adaptation of a book with the same name written by Anna Cleeve, the bestselling author of crime fiction books. The series starts when Mathew Venn and His husband Jonathan return to the community he was banished from to attend his late father’s funeral.
Mathew was cast away by the religious community for being gay, something that was considered a sin. When the body of one of the town’s residents is found by the beach, Mathew takes the case to investigate the killers behind Simons’s murder. The location of the filming of the story (North Devon) played a role in the popularity of The Long Call. Despite it being a hit on ITV, will there be a second season?
The Long Call Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
ITV is yet to officially announce if the crime series will be back for the second season. With 6.4/10 ratings on IMDB and the positive feedback from the fans, chances are Mathew Venn will be back on our screens to solve a new murder case that builds on the Long Call 1 season finale. The second season is anticipated to be based on the sequel of the Long Callbook,” The Herons Cry,” which is also another of Mathew Venn’s series.
The creators have ready material to start the production once the second season gets a green light. We could expect the second season in 2022. Fingers crossed!
The Long Call Season 2 Cast: Who will appear?
Most of the actors will reprise their roles if the Long Call gets renewed for the second season. Who do we expect to feature in the second season? Ben Aldridge has a sure bet of returning as Mathew Venn (the detective). Pearl Mackie as DS Jen Rafferty and Dylan Edwards as DC rosa Pritchard.
Gauging on the ending of season one, the second season will focus on an entirely different case as the murder behind Walden “s death is established. We should therefore expect to see new faces. Dennis and Grace being arrested could see Juliet Stevenson (Dorothy, Mathew’s mother) coming back to lead the Barum Brethren now that her husband is dead.
The Long Call Season 2 Plot: What should we expect?
Mathew discovers that Anita Dobson (Grace) killed Simon after being threatened by her abusive husband, Martin Shaw (Dennis).” The Herons Cry,” the second book after the long call, gives us an idea of what we should expect in the second season.
In the book, Mathew goes to a village to solve one of Jonathan’s (His husband) friends Dr. Nigel Yeo. When a body is found killed similarly to the Doctors, Mathew confirms his suspicions of their murders being staged. He has to watch his steps as this case gives him a feeling of Deja Vu.
The Long Call Season 2 Trailer: When will it be out?
The trailer for the series is not out yet. It will be released when Long Call 2 nears its premiere. If you have not watched this epic drama show, you should check both the trailer and season 1 on ITV. For all fans in love with Ann Cleeves books, Two Rivers (streaming on Britbox), Shetland (Netflix), and Vera Stanhope (Netflix) series will blow your mind off.
