The popularity of Grace season 1 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.

Given that season 1 just finished, there's no confirmation on the release date of season two. It's likely going to air in 2022. As always, we'll update this post when we get more details. 

Season 2 of Grace will premiere on ITV, and it's expected that US-based fans will likely be able to stream it on BritBox.

Grace is a detective drama based on the crime-thriller novels of Peter James. The novels tell the story of Brighton-based DS Roy 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.

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. 

It's thought that season 2 will continue this format, adapting books three through five:

  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.
