Jamie Dornan's The Tourist season two begins filming in Ireland

Season two of The Tourist has begun filming in Dublin, Ireland for BBC One and iPlayer, in association with Stan, ZDF and All3Media International. 

The six-part thriller is created and written by Jack and Harry Williams and is produced by the award-winning Two Brothers Pictures. It stars BAFTA and Golden Globe award-nominated Jamie Dornan and Danielle Macdonald.

Season two follows Elliot and Helen (Dornan and Macdonald respectively) after their adventure in the Australian Outback as they travel to Ireland together. In an attempt to rediscover Elliot’s roots following his memory loss, they’re dragged into the dangerous whirlwind of his past life and are confronted by friends and foes both old and new.

Harry and Jack Williams, Writers and Managing Directors of Two Brothers Pictures says: "We’re so excited to take Elliot and Helen to Ireland, where they will meet a host of dark and off beat new characters. With a stellar cast to match, we can’t wait for it all to be brought to life."

Having launched with 11.4 million viewers in the UK and holding the title as the UK’s most-watched drama of 2022 across all platforms, The Tourist is a bona fide hit. 

Two Brothers Pictures (an All3Media company) is producing for the BBC, in association with Stan, ZDF and All3Media International. Fergus O’Brien (Happy Valley) directs the opening block with Johann Perry (Gentleman Jack) as DOP, while Lisa Mulcahy (Blood) and Kate Dolan (Kin) direct block two and three respectively. 

Alex Mercer (Inside Man) is producer with Louise Kiely (The Banshees of Inisherin) as casting director. Executive producers are Harry and Jack Williams, Daniel Walker and Sarah Hammond for Two Brothers Pictures, with Nawfal Faizullah for the BBC, and Jamie Dornan.
