Dalgliesh Season 2 Renewal Status
It is yet to be made official whether there would be a Dalgliesh season 2. But let us not let our hopes dwindle. Furthermore, given the inaugural season’s popularity, it’s expected to be back in some time next year (2022).
The Doctor Foster actor told RadioTimes.com as well as other outlets that he was hoping for a second season based in the 1980s, stepping ahead in time from season one’s 1970s setting.
Here’s what he said: “I’m really excited to know what will happen if we get to do more, because as you know – I mean, I think one thing that’s so interesting about the novels is that she’s a brilliant observer, PD James, of social reality and social detail, and sets the novels very much in their time, obviously. So there’s been some amount of adaptation to adjust those in these three films.”
He proceeded, “If we get to do more, I love the idea that maybe series two is set in the mid-’80s. And series three will be set in the mid-’90s. But I don’t know what the writers are going to do.”
Dalgliesh actors in the first season included Jeremy Irvine as Dalgliesh’s hot-tempered colleague Charles Masterson, as well as Mirren Mack, Natasha Little, Paul Mallon, and Siobhán Cullen.

A student is murdered unexpectedly, and it’s upon Dalgliesh to figure out what occurred and how to punish the culprit.

Absolutely in love with this series! Uuuggghhh!! Have to wait for season two!!! Hurry up people!!!!!
My husband and I absolutely loved all three episodes of Season 1! Excited to learn Season 2 is a strong possibility. Can’t wait!
I’ve read all of P.D. James’s novels and love love love the TV series. It’s been so long since I read those first novels that the plots are all new to me, so please go ahead and make another season!
Actually there are two episodes of 1/2 hour each which isnt enough time to cover thr book. The first episode sets everything up slowly, then resolves it fast in the 2nd episode. However i like the actors. I will have to reread two of them but nightingale is pretty close to the book.
But it covers three books.
