Good news:
There will be a second series of Karen Pirie, starring Lauren Lyle and adapted by Emer Kenny! Series Two will be based on A Darker Domain, the second in the internationally bestselling Karen Pirie novels, written by Val McDermid.  Lauren Lyle will again star as the young and fearless Scottish investigator with a quick mouth and tenacious desire for the truth. The bad news is that the series won't start filming until early 2024. Who knows when the show will reach the U.S.

Lauren Lyle:  
“I'm thrilled that we will continue the life of our fearless young detective Karen Pirie, and of course, her bumbag. I've known for a while how well the show has gone down behind the scenes so it's been a joy to see audiences want more. It's a creative honour to work alongside Emer Kenny with the backbone of Val McDermid's story, season one was incredibly exciting building an original character we hadn't seen before. I look forward to getting the gang back together and finally being able to answer the question: ‘Please say there will be a season two?’ with an ‘Oh yes.’ 

Val McDermid: 
“I know the millions of viewers all over the world who loved the first Karen Pirie series will be as thrilled at this news as I am. I can't wait to see how the team bring the next book, A Darker Domain, to life!”
Filming will commence in Scotland during early 2024 and details of further casting and key production personnel will be advised in the coming months.
