Amazon Renews 'The Rig' for Season 2

Amazon has today renewed its original drama series The Rig for a second season. Production will commence on the new season in Edinburgh, Scotland later this year for a 2024 premiere.

The new season will follow the surviving Kinloch Bravo crew as they are helicoptered off the rig and taken to a new location, where fresh danger awaits. They must contend with swirling conspiracies, conflicts, and new threats from the depths of the world's oceans.

Returning cast members include Iain Glen, Emily Hampshire, Martin Compston, Rochenda Sandall, Owen Teale, Mark Addy, Molly Vevers, Abraham Popoola and Stuart McQuarrie.

David Macpherson created the drama. He executive produces with Derek Wax and director John Strickland. Wild Mercury Productions produces.

"In series two, I'm looking forward to expanding the world of our show through the eyes of our excellent cast, as we deliver more shocks and thrills and delve deeper into both our characters' and our show's expanding original mythology," said Macpherson.
