Following the success of Hope Street, filming for the second season has begun, promising a treat of riveting narrative, engaging characters, and breath-taking locales.
With series one's tense cliff-hanger leaving audiences on tenterhooks, lead actor Ciaran McMenamin (Inspector Finn O'Hare) returns to film the exciting series. Also joining him are returning cast Brid Brennan (Concepta O'Hare), Des McAleer (Barry Pettigrew), Kerri Quinn (Marlene Pettigrew), Niall Wright (Callum McCarthy), Aaron McCusker (Clint Dunwoody), Niamh McGrady (Nicole Devine), Rachel Tucker (Siobhan O'Hare), Louis McCartney (Shay O'Hare) and Ellie Lavery (Niamh O'Hare).
The cast also features an array of exciting new characters, played by actors Stephen Hagan (Risen), Sade Malone (Tin Star), Ian Kenny (The Owners), Sophie Robinson (Rebellion), Marty Maguire (Vikings), Daniel Carlin (Blackrock), Niall Cusack (The Lost City of Z), Michael Byers (Mr Selfridge), Brigid Lohrey (If I Don't Lose, I'll Lose), Conor Grimes (Mrs Wilson), Cathy White (Nurses), Erin Galway Kendrick (Little Women) and Chris McCurry (Belfast) and Enya Doran.
Ciaran McMenamin who plays Inspector Finn O'Hare says:
"I'm over the moon to be on the Hope Street beat again. It was touch and go for Finn at the end of last season, but I'm glad to say he'll be back where he belongs with Marlene and Callum, dealing with the unique challenges thrown at them by all your old favourites, along with a motley crew of wonderful new characters. I couldn't be happier to be back home in Northern Ireland for the shoot this summer. The new scripts are brilliant, and sure, where would you rather be?"
Keep your eyes peeled for series two of Hope Street, returning to BBC Daytime and BBC One Northern Ireland later in 2022.
