"However, when the case turns into something far more brutal and desperate, Julien must navigate a Hungarian police force he doesn't trust and unrelenting media who are hungry for information on such a high-profile international case.

"Julien must remain rational in the face of chaos in order to find Emma's family. Will he be able to solve his most complex case yet?"

Filming for the series originally began in Budapest back in February 2020.

But production was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic and resumed again in the summer last year.

As well as a new location, there is also a new actress in the form of Fiona Shaw aka Killing Eve's Carolyn Martens.

Fiona plays British Ambassador Emma Chambers whose family mysteriously disappears, prompting the authorities to call in the missing persons expert, Julien Baptiste.

Asked about returning to his role, Actor Tchéky said: "The story they [Jack & Harry Williams] have written for the second series is so bold, it questions our society and our relationships with others with a strong and accurate sense of judgement.

"I was excited to be challenged this way and to carry this ambitious story on my shoulders.”
