As Deadline revealed earlier this year, the show was handed a second season by BBC Three and Pop. Filming has now begun on the drama, created by Skins’ Jess Brittain, in Edinburgh, with a number of new faces joining the cast.
While the first season, which saw Holly, played by Synnove Karlsen, drawn to a group of alluring, confident but troubled young women, the second will see her encounter a radically different clique, this time a band of brothers.
Suter, who also starred in Jack Whitehall’s Bad Education, will be joined by The Hollow Crown’s Barney Harris, Outlander’s Stuart Campbell alongside King, Mary, Queen of Scots’ Izuka Hoyle and newcomers Jyuddah Jaymes and Nicholas Nunn. Paddington’s Madeleine Worrall and Against The Law’s Richard Gadd also join the show, which sees the return of Karlsen, Sophia Brown and Rachel Hurd-Wood.
Pop, formerly the TV Guide Network, revealed earlier this week that Clique would launch this summer and that the second season will air in 2019.
The six-part series is produced by Balloon Entertainment and BBC Studios and distributed globally by All3Media International. Executive Producers are Bryan Elsley and Dave Evans for Balloon, Tom Sherry for BBC Studios and Gaynor Holmes for BBC and Jess Brittain. Series Producer is Neil Duncan.
Brittain says: “It’s great to have the opportunity to return to the world of Clique to tell another story. I love writing for new and exciting young actors and can’t think of a better place than BBC Three to do that.”
Tom Sherry, BBC Studios Executive Producer, added: “Jess has delivered a sexually charged thriller, with deeply seductive characters. We have a fabulous cast and everyone involved can’t wait to share the results.”
