McDonald and Dodds season 2 – ITV confirm it will return next month!

McDonald and Dodds season 2 promises to be just as brilliant as the first

McDonald and Dodds season 2 will see Tala Gouveia and Jason Watkins return as the unlikely crime-fighting duo.

Following the huge success of the first, which is available to watch on BritBox, the pair are set for more adventures in 2021.

McDonald and Dodds season 2 release date

McDonald and Dodds will be back in February 2021. ITV has yet to confirm an exact start date.

What’s the plot?

What we know so far is that the new series will again be set in picturesque Bath. Ambitious McDonald (Tala Gouveia) now has more faith in her quietly brilliant partner Dodds (Jason Watkins) after they cracked two cases in the previous series. The pair this time will be investigating a tragedy at a plastic surgery clinic. Can they work out what really happened? And can McDonald put up with Dodds for another case?!

The story has been filmed in the West Country.

ITV’s Drama Commissioner Huw Kennair Jones said: “We’re delighted with the audience reaction to the first series of McDonald and Dodds. The two characters couldn’t be further apart, which is what makes the series so intriguing to watch.  They shouldn’t have chemistry, but they do, and they work brilliantly in partnership which is testimony to Robert’s script and Tala and Jason for bringing McDonald & Dodds to life.”
