‘Deadloch’ will be returning for a second season

Black comedy murder mystery show Deadloch will be returning for a second season.

The show is from co-creators Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan and season one of the award-winning crime comedy garnered widespread global success in 2023. Production on the 6-part second season will commence later this year and will be released globally on Prime Video.

Lauded by critics and legions of fans in Australia and around the world, Deadloch became a bona fide breakout hit, reaching the Top 10 TV Shows in more than 165 countries and territories on Prime Video including the U.S., UK, and Canada.

The first season, set in Tasmania, saw two very different detectives thrown together to solve the murder of a man.

The series won five AACTA Awards earlier this year including Best Acting in a Comedy for Kate Box and Best Screenplay in Television for Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan. The series recently scored three nominations in the 2024 TV WEEK Logie Awards including Best Scripted Comedy Program.

Season Two heads to the Top End of Australia and sees the return of Kate Box and Madeleine Sami as Dulcie Collins and Eddie Redcliffe. The detective duo are in Darwin investigating the death of Eddie’s former policing partner, Bushy, but when the bodies of two Top End icons are discovered in a remote town, they are flung into a new sweatier, stickier investigation. Also reprising their roles are Nina Oyama as Abby Matsuda and Alicia Gardiner as Cath York, Dulcie’s wife.

“We are thrilled that Deadloch will be returning for a second season to give our global Prime Video customers another dose of its unique blend of Australian humour and gripping mystery, this time set against the visually stunning Northern Territory landscape,” said Sarah Christie, senior development executive, Amazon MGM Studios.

“The success of the first season, which has become a critical darling and cultivated a passionate fanbase, is a testament to the brilliant creative force of Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan. It’s wonderful to be continuing our collaboration with them, Guesswork Television and OK Great Productions, and to bring back our outstanding cast in Kate Box, Madeleine Sami, Nina Oyama and Alicia Gardiner. We can’t wait to share more from the world of Deadloch with fans around the world.”

“We are so excited to head to the Top End for a sticky, sweaty and filthy Season Two,” said Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan, creators, writers and executive producers. 

“Both of us are thrilled to be teaming up again with comedy angels Kate Box, Madeleine Sami, Nina Oyama and Alicia Gardiner and we can’t wait to work with a new bunch of cast members and some massive fucking crocodiles.” 

“It’s fantastic that Deadloch’s second season will be made at Screen Queensland Studios, Brisbane as well as utilising our local waterways,” said Jacqui Feeney, CEO, Screen Queensland.

“Screen Queensland is passionate about supporting Australian drama production and we look forward to welcoming the creative team behind this internationally acclaimed series to Brisbane.”

The first season can be watched on Amazon Prime.
