Sky renews Temple for season 2
Filming will begin in early 2020.
Gritty medical drama Temple has been renewed for a second season by Sky.
Filming is due to start in early 2020 and its been confirmed the action will pick up a month after the first season’s major cliffhanger ending.
Mark Strong stars as skilled surgeon Daniel Mays who sets up an illegal clinic in the vast maze of tunnels beneath London’s Temple station in order to fund research into a cure for his wife’s (Catherine McCormack) illness.
He’s joined by misfit tube worker Lee (Daniel Mays) and troubled medical researcher Anna (Carice Van Houten) as they find themselves slowly being drawn into the dangerous world of bank robbers and doomsday preppers.
Sky has released a short plot description for this upcoming season which reads as follows:
“Daniel desperately tries to keep everything under control but with Lee falling for a fanatical uber-prepper and Anna luring patients down to the clinic for illegal drug trials, life is only going to get more insane.”
Created by Mark O’ Rowe, Temple serves as an english-language adaptation of the acclaimed Norweigen series Valkyrien.
Rowe also wrote all eight episodes of the first season with directing duties shared between Luke Snellin, Shariff Korver and Lisa Siwe.
“Daniel Milton is a richly complex character to play and after leaving the audience hanging on a heart-stopping finale, I know series two will take viewers on an even wilder ride,” said Strong.
“The cast and I can’t wait to get started – I am delighted that we have the chance to take Temple to another level with a second series and to work again with the brilliant team at Sky.”
The first season of Temple is available to stream in its entirety on NOW TV.
