Baptiste Season 2 Plot Details
Season 2 will follow Ambassador Emma Chambers (Fiona Shaw) and the disappearance of her family in the Hungarian mountains.
Baptiste is keen to dive into a new case after the events of Season 1, and soon becomes entangled in a whole new pool of secrets.
Season 2 will also focus on Baptiste’s relationship with his wife Celia, as well as his interaction with Emma as the investigation unravels.
The detective’s emotional turmoil will be explored this season through a series of flashbacks, and Karyo has promised that we’ll get to see “how great [Baptiste’s] capacity for resilience is.”
