The promo for the highly anticipated second series of Trigger Point, which returns to ITV1 and ITVX in the New Year, has been released.

Starring Vicky McClure (Without Sin) in the lead role as police bomb disposal officer – or Expo  - Lana Washington, the second series also features returning cast members Nabil Elouahabi (Unforgotten, The Tower) as Hass, Eric Shango (Suspicion) as Danny, Mark Stanley (Happy Valley, The Thief, His Wife and The Canoe) as DI Thom Youngblood, Kerry Godliman (After Life, Whitstable Pearl) as Sonya Reeves, Kris Hitchen (Four Lives) as John and Kevin Eldon (Sanditon) as Jeff.

It also features new cast members Natalie Simpson (North Sea Connection, Outlander) who plays DS Helen Morgan, Julian Ovenden (Bridgerton) who plays Commander John Francis and Tomiwa Edun as Alex (Young Wallander, Trying).

The first series, which focused on the Expo officers in the Metropolitan Police Bomb Disposal Squad, was commissioned by ITV’s Head of Drama, Polly Hill, and was the best performing drama of 2022, averaging 9.5m viewers per episode.

The new six-part series has been written by Simon Ashdown (Our House, EastEnders), Amanda Duke (Treason) and Daniel Brierley. It was created by Daniel Brierley.

In episode one, Lana is just back from secondment training bomb disposal teams, but has not returned to active duty. She is giving a routine talk to security officers from major financial institutions about the issues surrounding bomb centred terrorism, when there is a bomb attack in the heart of the city. Lana is closest to the incident, but is she ready to take it on?

Trigger Point will air on ITV1 and ITVX. The series is produced by HTM Television which is co-owned by Jed Mercurio and Hat Trick Productions. The series is executive produced by Mark Redhead (Stephen, Bloodlands), Jessica Sharkey (Bloodlands, Derry Girls) and Vicky McClure with Jed Mercurio (Line of Duty, Bodyguard) and Jimmy Mulville (Bloodlands, Derry Girls).

The series is produced by Mat Chaplin (The Last Kingdom) and directed by Jon East (Bloodlands, The Last Kingdom) and Audrey Cooke (Bloodlands, DI Ray). It is produced in association with BYO and All3Media International, who distribute the series internationally.
