After a successful first season, the British crime drama thriller series is gearing up to return with another season. The series is created and penned by Daniel Brierley and is directed by Gilles Bannier alongside Jennie Darnell. The six-episode season premiered in January 2022 and received positive reviews from the audience and critics alike.
Fans will be thrilled to learn that ITV has greenlit the series for a second run. To know more about the upcoming season, stay with us till the end.
Will There Be a Season 2 of Trigger Point?
Yes, ITV has officially renewed the series for a second instalment.
Series executive producer Jed Mercurio in his recent interview (via Nine) said, “We would love the opportunity to do more because we just feel it’s one of those areas that hasn’t really been explored, particularly in terms of the world we live in now, it feels topical. If we’re fortunate enough to be successful, and the audience likes it in sufficient numbers, then we’d relish the opportunity for another series.”
Creator Daniel Brierley also revealed (via Memorable TV) that he planned Trigger Point as a multiple seasons drama series.
“Very much so, because Lana is such an involved person and throughout the first series she’s really finding herself. There are lots of places for her to go as a character and I really want to follow her journey. Plus, the world of bomb disposal and counterterrorism is a really exciting one for a drama. I hope the audience is drawn into the world we’ve created, and that it feels tense, exciting and real.”
Trigger Point Season 2 Release Date: When is it Premiering?
An official release date has yet to be announced. Given the success of the first season, it is no surprise that the series season 2 was renewed. As per sources, Polly Hill, ITV’s boss of drama was held accountable for ordering a second run. Speaking of its renewal, she stated: “I am so delighted to see Trigger Point return.”
She continued: “Vicky is stunning as Lana and it’s brilliantly produced by Jed and HTM, but I also want to congratulate Daniel for his scripts. To have held the audience in a state of tension for six hours so brilliantly, you can’t believe it’s his first show. I can’t wait to see where series two takes Lana and her team.”
Mercurio also noted: “Everyone at HTM Television is thrilled by the success of Trigger Point. Thanks to all our brilliant cast and crew and especially to the viewers who watched in such large numbers. We’ve received unswerving support from ITV throughout the production and we are delighted to have been commissioned for a second series.”
Since the first season was released on January 23, 2022, fans can expect the second season to be out by early 2023.
