The highest-rated new UK drama of 2019, Manhunt, is back for a riveting second season with a new investigation. BAFTA and SAG Award-winning actor Martin Clunes (Doc Martin) is reprising his critically acclaimed role as former London Metropolitan Police detective DCI Colin Sutton. Based on Sutton's real-life diaries, this time concerning a case of a burglar and serial rapist's 17-year reign of terror, the Acorn TV Original series Manhunt: The Night Stalker will premiere exclusively in the U.S. and Canada on Monday, October 18 on Acorn TV, AMC Networks' acclaimed streamer devoted to British and international television. New episodes will premiere weekly every Monday through November 8.
Manhunt: The Night Stalker is based on the true story of the police pursuit of a notorious burglar and serial rapist who left thousands of elderly people in Southeast London living in fear, between 1992 and 2009. As the suspect continued to evade capture, Detective Chief Inspector Colin Sutton (Clunes) was asked in 2009 to review the case. Working with Detective Superintendent Simon Morgan and the dedicated "Operation Minstead" team, Sutton proposed a strategy he believed could catch one of Britain's most prolific rapists, focusing a vast surveillance operation around a key area of southeast London. Scores of additional officers were deployed to invisibly saturate the target area on a nightly basis. The clock was ticking, as the Night Stalker was becoming ever more brazen and prolific. The drama explores how Sutton came in and helped solve it in a matter of weeks, taking an incredibly dangerous criminal off the streets.
The second season co-stars Claudie Blakley (Pride and Prejudice), who plays Colin's wife, Louise Sutton, and Matthew Gravelle (Broadchurch) as DI Nathan Eason. Manhunt: The Night Stalker was created by Colin Sutton and Ed Whitmore (Viewpoint, Silent Witness, Rillington Place, Strike Back), and was produced by Buffalo Pictures. The executive producers are Philippa Braithwaite and Ed Whitmore, the producer is Jo Willett, the co-producer is Evie Bergson-Korn, and the director is Marc Evans.
