Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) reprises her Golden Globe winning role as Detective Robin Griffin in a first-look picture (above) for the second series of Jane Campion‘s BBC Two drama, Top Of The Lake.

Filmed on location in Sydney, Australia earlier in the year, Top of the Lake Season 2: ‘China Girl’ is a six-part crime mystery story that begins four years on from the explosive ending of series one, which aired on BBC Two to critical acclaim in 2013.

When the unidentified body of an Asian girl washes up on to Sydney’s Bondi Beach the case seems hopeless – until detective Robin Griffin discovers that “China Girl” didn’t die alone.

The new series will see the addition of Game Of Thrones Gwendoline Christie in a major role, David Dencik (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Alice Englert (Jonathan Strange And Mr Norrell) and Ewen Leslie (The Daughter).

Top of the Lake Series 2 is produced by See-Saw Films for BBC Two in association with BBC First in Australia, BBC UKTV in New Zealand, SundanceTV and Hulu in the United States, ARTE in France and BBC Worldwide. The series will broadcast in the UK in 2017 on BBC Two.
