Good news! For those that have been patiently waiting ever since the news broke that there would, in fact, be a second season of the critically acclaimed series Broadchurch, there finally is in fact some news to share! Bad news: It’s not entirely what you could call a substantial update, but at least it’s an update that promises there’s more to come! And there are new trailers to get excited over. They're just not very long ones.
Over the past week or so, ITV has been steadily dropping teaser trailers heralding the highly anticipated return of their most popular murder mystery from last year. There have been four new clips so far and while none of them show any actual new footage – unless you can count the fact that stars David Tennant and Olivia Colman exist and wear clothes outdoors as footage – they’re still pretty effective at ramping up the tension as we build toward the series’ second season. Which, according to these trailers, will be January 2015 for those lucky enough to live in the UK. (No word on American dates yet, sorry gang.)
And honsetly, when we've all gone this long with virutally no new Broadchurch-releated anything, it doesn't take that much to stoke fans' excitement.
At any rate, these are well worth a watch, if only because we’ve all been so starved for any scraps of information about the new season of Broadchurch. Filming has been basically kept on lockdown and while Americans have had (the debatable trainwreck of) Gracepoint to keep us occupied, it’s been pretty hard not to notice that we literally have zero idea what Season 2 is going to entail.
