ITV has announced that the second series of The Frankenstein Chronicles has started filming in Northern Ireland, with Sean Bean returning as John Marlott.
The six-part series finds Marlott seeking revenge on Lord Daniel Hervey for taking his life, and to redeem his soul after being wrongly convicted and hanged for murder.
In his pursuit of Hervey, Marlott takes on the establishment in the form of Robert Peel’s newly formed Police force and the Church. In the darkest corners of Georgian London, Marlott acts as defender of the poor and destitute as he fights to clear his name and bring Hervey to justice.
Joining Bean are includes Laurence Fox (Becoming Jane, Lewis), Ed Stoppard (The Musketeers, Cilla), Maeve Dermody (SS-GB, And Then There Were None) and Richie Campbell (Waterloo Road, Liar). Robbie Gee (Cuffs, Snatch), Ryan Sampson (Plebs, Holby City), Tom Ward (Silent Witness) and Vanessa Kirby (The Crown, About Time) will also return.
