Created by William Boyd, Spy City is a television miniseries. The show was created during the Cold War. It first aired in Germany. AMC+ picked up the rights to stream in the United States at MIPTV.
The plot of the series is about a British spy. He was sent to Berlin in 1961. He was sent on a mission to uncover a mole in the United Kingdom’s Embassy or among the Allies, shortly before the construction of the Berlin Wall.
This series has a cast never seen before: Dominic Cooper, Johanna Wokalek, Leonie Benesch, Ben Münchow, Romane Portail and Seumas F. Sargent, interpreting our characters: Fielding Scott, Ulrike Faber, Eliza Hahn, Reinhart, Severine Bloch, and Conrad Greer, respectively
Spy City was shot in Roudnice nad Labem, Plzeň, Prague in the Czech Republic, from 27 August to 30 November 2019, subbing for Berlin in the 1960s. It was produced by Mischa Hofmann, Britta Meyermann, and Ann-Kathrin Eicher in association with William Boyd, and Dominic Cooper, among others. So far there’s only one season of the series.
Here are all the updates about the potential second season of Spy City, including its release date, cast details, and other updates.
Will there be Spy City Season 2?
Spy City entered development in 2014. It was initially planned to be a ten-episode series. In 2019, Dominic Cooper was cast in the lead role.
The 2020 BBC One series features James Bond-like spy Fielding Scott during the Cold War and Cuban Missile Crisis. William Boyd created the first season, starring Dominic Cooper, Leila Farzad, and Romy Rosemont. The series was lauded for its spy thriller themes, locale, and performances but criticized for being slow and dramatic.
Several elements could affect Spy City’s second-season renewal:
- Series’ enduring appeal.
- Cast and crew availability.
- Finding a fascinating second-season tale.
- BBC’s willingness to invest in a second season.
Spy City may not be renewed for a second season due to the lack of an official announcement and the mixed response to the first season. The series has a fanbase, so the BBC may give it another shot. I’ll keep you informed. Try The Americans, The Night Manager, or Tehran if you like thrillers.
