Duff (Bad Sisters) stars in the series as Dr Susannah Newman. In the eight-part series, she is on a desperate quest to track down a self-proclaimed serial killer before he kills again that night. When a mysterious new client Jon (Cooper) admits under hypnosis that he is a murderer and plans to kill a young woman that night, Susannah knows he must be stopped at all costs.

“I’m so pleased to be returning to Suspect to be able to dig deeper into the character of Dr Susannah Newman,” said Duff. “Expect lots of twists, turns and revelations alongside more questions to be answered. I can’t wait for viewers to see what we’ve done with the second series.”

Suspects comes from Professor T (UK) and Before We Die (UK) producer Eagle Eye Drama and is written by Joy Wilkinson (Lockwood & Co.) and David Allison (Marcella). The series is destined for Britain's Channel 4, for which outgoing acquisitions head Nick Lee bought it, and is co-produced by BritBox International for the US and Canada. The eight-part drama will be distributed internationally by Fremantle and will air in 2024.

Ben Wadey, Channel 4 Drama Commissioning Executive said: “We’re thrilled to be working with Eagle Eye Drama again to be bringing back Suspect for a second series. With Anne-Marie Duff returning as Dr Susannah Newman plus a truly spectacular ensemble cast that includes Dominic Cooper, Tamsin Greig and Eddie Marsan, Channel 4 viewers are truly in for a ride when this hits our screens.”

Reemah Sakaan, CEO BritBox International and executive producer added: “I am absolutely delighted that such a stellar ensemble cast is joining the incredible Anne-Marie Duff to tell the next chapter of Suspect Season 2. Joy Wilkinson and David Allison have delivered brilliant scripts and I know our BritBox International viewers in the US will be gripped from start to end.”

Carolina Giammetta (Before We Die (UK)) will direct. Eagle Eye's Jo McGrath and Walter Iuzzolino are executive producers and Dylan Rees (Heartstopper) is series producer. Sakaan and Stephen Nye are executive producers for Britbox International, which acquired the series following a deal between Fremantle's Lisa Honig, EVP Distribution North America.

Suspect is an adaptation of the Danish Forhøret (Face to Face), which was created and written by Christoffer Boe and Anna Juul. The original series was produced by Miso Film, a Fremantle company, and executive produced by Boe, Jonas Allen and Peter Bose who are also executive producers for Suspect.

The series was produced in collaboration with Happy Duck Films and the Belgian Tax Shelter. Fremantle handles worldwide sales.
