The first season has not even hit the airwaves yet, but a second series of brand-new Sky Original Production Tin Star, starring BAFTA award-winning Tim Roth and produced by Kudos (Broadchurch, Humans and The Tunnel: Sabotage, has already been confirmed. Tin Star season one debuts this Thursday.

All 10 episodes of Tin Star will be available from 7 Septemberon Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.

Tin Star has been described as “a cross between Twin Peaks and Breaking Bad” by Sunday Times Culture, “a tale of corruption, murder, grief and all-consuming revenge” by Red magazine and an “epic new TV drama” by Empire. The series, penned by BAFTA award-winning writer and director Rowan Joffe (28 Weeks Later, The American), follows British police chief Jim Worth (Tim Roth) and his family as they desperately try to escape a past that unleashed an act of vicious revenge.

The first series of Tin Star explores just how far someone will go to protect the ones they love, and series two will continue the thrilling, emotional and sometimes darkly comic story of a man split in two by his past and present.

Anne Mensah, head of drama, Sky, said: “When Tin Star launches this week, Sky Atlantic viewers will not only experience a hugely powerful tale of revenge with captivating, uncompromising characters, but will be left in no doubt as to why a second series was an absolute must. Our huge thanks to Rowan, Tim, Alison, Diederick and the whole cast and crew for this outstanding series. We can’t wait to make series two!”
