The second series of ‘Kin’ will be coming soon to BBC One and iPlayer.

The Irish crime drama from FIFTH SEASON first aired in 2021, with the BBC acquiring and launching the series in November 2023.

Now, UK audiences will be able to catch up with the “explosive” second series in the near future.

In a press release, Head of Programme Acquisition Sue Deeks said: “All I will say is if you found the first series exciting and engrossing, just wait until you see the twists and turns in series two!”

The series tells the story of the Kinsella family, who have a wide reach in the criminal underworld of Dublin. However, their status has caught the attention of a dangerous enemy, leading to suspicion, distrust and feuding amongst the family.

Jennifer Ebell, EVP of EMEA Sales and Acquisitions at FIFTH SEASON, said: “The Kinsellas are back and the stakes are higher than ever. Series two of this family crime drama is explosive and we are pleased the BBC joins the growing number of our international partners.”

Series two will see the return of the star-studded cast, including Aidan Gillen (‘Game of Thrones’), Charlie Cox (‘Daredevil'), Clare Dunne (‘The Last Duel’), Francis Magee (‘The Witcher’), Sam Keeley (‘The Cured’), Maria Doyle Kennedy (‘Outlander’), Emmett J. Scanlan (‘Peaky Blinders’), and Yasmin Seky as the Kinsella family come face-to-face with a new enemy closer to home.

Previously, Charlie Cox had discussed working on the project, and how “impressed” he was with the family dynamic the cast was able to create.

Speaking to DigitalSpy, he said: “I was really so impressed with all the other actors, and the family dynamic that we were able to create.

"I remember getting on set with everyone, and being like, 'I believe us as a family. I see it. I see the dynamics. I recognise the people from my own family. I see how they've become like that'. I thought the casting was tremendous on it."
