Fabulous tense horror crime drama Fortitude has been given a second series by Sky Atlantic. With the first season having just wrapped up season 2 will be back for another ten episode. Given the high attrition rate on the first season there will be a substantial amount of new characters on board too.
The first season took us to a desperate Arctic town where Stanley Tucci’s DCI Morton has arrived to ostensibly investigate a murder but strange things are going on and as the atmosphere gets more unsettling by the episode it soon becomes clear we are in the midst of something much more sinister.
The all star cast also included Michael Gambon, Christopher Eccleston, Sienna Guillory, Richard Dormer and Sofie Gråbøl. Not all of these survived the onslaught though.
Series creator Simon Donald will oversee the second season with Patrick Spence, Frith Tiplady, Anne Mensah and Lizzie Gray as exec producers.
