Season 1 premiered on the British network in March 2020 and quickly became one of its top-rating shows with a reach of over 1.57million individuals since its launch. Season 2, which will be co-produced by PBS Masterpiece and Element 8 Entertainment, is scheduled to be released in 2022. Filming is expected to commence this summer in Belgrade, Serbia.
Both leads, Kate Phillips, who plays Victorian London’s first female detective Eliza Scarlet, and Stuart Martin, who plays family friend and “potential love interest” William “The Duke” Wellington, are both confirmed to reprise their roles. Andrew Gower will also return as Rupert Parker as Eliza’s best friend and investor in her private detective agency.
“Miss Scarlet and The Duke has built a massive following since it first aired on Alibi last year, so we are thrilled to have it back for another series. Rachael New has created a wonderful range of characters and mixes the gritty scenes of Victorian London with a brilliant light-hearted side, making it a firm favourite for our viewers.”
