Not only is Elisabeth Moss returning for a second season of “Top of the Lake” on SundanceTV and BBC, she’s set to be joined by “Game of Thrones” and “Star Wars” actress Gwendoline Christie along with David Dencik and Alice Englert.
Jane Campion and Ariel Kleiman will return to direct the new season of the crime mystery drama which Campion is co-writing with Gerard Lee. The new season will find Moss’ character investigating a new murder four years after the events of the original which revolved around the disappearance of a 12-year-old girl.
Moss said in a statement: “I’m so excited to be back in Australia working with Jane on exploring this wonderful character. I can’t wait for audiences to see where we take Robin’s journey.” Christie added: “Jane Campion has been a major creative influence throughout my life and I could not feel more privileged to be working on the next installment of her unique and enthralling drama.”
Season 2 will premiere first on BBC Two in the U.K. in 2017, then later in the year in the U.S. on SundanceTV and Hulu the following day.
