Ireland’s RTÉ and New Zealand’s TVNZ have renewed the mystery series ‘The Gone’ for a second season. The filming of the sophomore round will start in Dublin, Ireland, and Auckland, New Zealand, early next year.
In the first season of the show, Irish Detective Theo Richter and Maori Detective Diana Huia dive into a compelling case in the small town of Mt Affinity, New Zealand. As they investigate the mysterious disappearance of a young Irish couple named Sinead and Ronan, Richter and Huia, both grappling with personal challenges, uncover layers of complexity in the case. The installment ends with the investigators confronting the murderer they have been searching for. The second installment may revolve around another intriguing investigation that will trouble Richter and Diana, both professionally and personally.
Leading the cast of the series is Richard Flood as Detective Theo Richter, alongside Acushla-Tara Kupe, who portrays Kiwi cop Diana Huia. Renowned for his notable performances in acclaimed shows such as ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Crossing Lines,’ Flood brings his seasoned acting prowess to the forefront. Kupe, known for her roles in ‘Mr. Corman’ and ‘Under the Vines,’ adds her talent to the ensemble, contributing to the show’s dynamic and compelling performances. If the sophomore round focuses on a new investigation, we can expect new faces to feature along with Flood and Kupe.
Michael Bennett and Anna McPartlin, the co-developers who wrote the first season, are also penning the sophomore round. They are joined by Peter Burger and Hannah Quinn, who will helm the second season episodes. The filmmaking duo previously directed the first round’s three episodes each. Overseeing the creative vision and production of the season is a talented crew, including executive producers Karl Zohrab, Yvonne Donohoe, and Katie Holly. Together, this dedicated team collaborates to bring the intriguing storyline to life, ensuring a well-executed production.
Dublin is a popular filming destination for crime dramas. The city previously hosted the filming of AMC+’s ‘Kin,’ Acorn TV’s ‘Harry Wild,’ and ‘Miss Scarlet and the Duke.’ Auckland, on the other hand, is a significant location of famed productions such as ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ and ‘Sweet Tooth.’
