Sean Bean Returns To The Frankenstein Chronicles

ITV Encore has announced that The Frankenstein Chronicles, starring Sean Bean (Game Of Thrones), has begun filming in Northern Ireland for a six-part second season.

Season two will see John Marlott (Sean Bean) forced to operate outside the law as he comes up against dark forces in high society and in the dangerous slums of the over-crowded capital. No longer a mere mortal, Marlott seeks revenge on Lord Daniel Hervey for taking his life, and to redeem his soul after being wrongly hanged for murder.

In pursuit of Hervey, Marlott takes on on the establishment in the form of Robert Peel’s newly formed Police force and the Church. In the darkest corners of Georgian London, Marlott acts as defender of the poor and destitute as he fights to clear his name and bring Hervey to justice.

The cast for season two also includes Laurence Fox (Lewis), Ed Stoppard (The Musketeers), Maeve Dermody (SS-GB), Richie Campbell (Waterloo Road), Robbie Gee (Cuffs), Ryan Sampson (Holby City), Tom Ward (Silent Witness) and Vanessa Kirby (The Crown).
