Grace Starring John Simm
John Simm returns in season 2 of Grace

The popularity of Grace's first season was so great that ITV renewed the series for season two after the airing of the first episode. 

ITV’s Head of Drama Polly Hill issued a statement saying: “We are delighted to be adapting more of Peter James’ wonderful novels.”

Series writer Russell Lewis (Endeavour) commented on the announcement of season 2, saying:

Team Roy Grace are delighted to have been given the opportunity by ITV to return to Brighton (& Hove, actually!) to continue Roy's story with a new series of films based on Peter James best-selling novels. 

Who's Returning for Grace: Season 2?

Quite a few familiar faces will return for season 2 of Grace

Grace stars John Simm (Life on Mars, Doctor Who) as detective Roy Grace. He is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his wife, and has a reputation of using unorthodox methods to investigate his cases. 

Starring alongside Simm is Richie Campbell (Liar) as Grace's partner, and Rakie Ayola (Noughts + Crosses) as Chief Constable Vosper, and Adrian Rawlins (Harry Potter) as Harry Frame.

Other cast members for Grace season 1 include Laura Elphinstone (Line of Duty) as DS Moy, Alisha Bailey (Save Me) as Ashely, Matt Stokoe (Bodyguard) as Mark, Maggie O’Neill (EastEnders) as Gill, and Tom Weston-Jones (Dickensian) as Michael.

Series leads including Simm, Campbell, Ayola, and Rawlins are expected to return. It's likely the supporting cast for series 2 will be new since they will cover different cases.

The first season of the show was broken into two episodes. The first book, Dead Simple covered the first episode of season 1. The second book in the series Looking Good Dead covered episode 2. 

According to ITV, season 2 will have four new episodes based on the next books in line – but that's because in the UK, the second episode of the first season is listed as being part of season 2. In the US, it's just the three episodes.

  1. Long time fan of the Peter James books. Loved season 1 and found the translation from book to screen to be well done. Sometimes the screen writers miss the mark but I think they have done a good job with the episodes so far. Looking forward to season 2 with Grace and his friends! Well acted, fast paced and of course the setting and cinematography is well done.

    • I am waiting on pins and needles for the first episode of season 2. Just loved the first season.
