The UKTV Original will return to screens following its successful launch earlier this year, with a total of 731k viewers tuning in to the first episode.
“We Hunt Together has been a standout series this year on Alibi, so we are really pleased to be able to bring our viewers more of this brilliant drama. Gaby Hull cleverly weaves dark humour into incredibly dramatic scenes, so I can’t wait to see what this new series has in store.” – Alibi channel director Emma Ayech
Produced by BBC Studios and written by Gaby Hull, series one of the cat and mouse thriller introduced two star-crossed killers, Baba and Freddy, who go on the run from the police after committing a series of brutal murders.
Mismatched detectives DS Lola Franks and DI Jackson Mendy were assigned to the case and determined to stop the deadly duo in their tracks.
Series two will pick up ten months after the dramatic finale, with a potential new accomplice on the scene and another game of obsession, murder and love to get underway. This time the risks are higher, but so are the rewards.
“It was a real pleasure developing series one with BBC Studios, UKTV and the incredible cast and crew. I’m excited to be able to keep the story going and see where the hunt takes us next.” – writer Gaby Hull
The new series of We Hunt Together will air in 2021 and casting will be confirmed at a later date.
