Guilt season 2 release date and plot

Guilt returned for its long-awaited second series on October 12th on BBC Scotland, followed by BBC Two on October 14th.

The new series continues the story of Max McCall as he is released from prison after serving time for the killing of a man who was run over at the beginning of season 1.

To help rebuild his life, Max turns to Kenny and Roy Lynch, although the jury is still out on whether the antagonistic Roy can be trusted or not.

However, Max’s return to society is far from simple as his release coincides with a shooting in an Edinburgh cellar which links him with a new arrival named Erin.


Is Guilt season 2 on BBC iPlayer?

Yes. All episodes of Guilt’s second series are available to stream right now on BBC iPlayer.

Fans can watch the new series of Guilt at their own pace after all episodes became available at 10pm on October 12th after season 2 debuted on BBC Scotland.

Of course, fans can still watch new episodes when they are broadcast on BBC Scotland on Tuesdays and BBC Two on Thursdays.


How many episodes are in Guilt season 2?

Season 2 of Guilt consists of four episodes in total.

The episode count should come as little surprise to existing fans as Guilt’s first series also featured a total of four episodes.

For fans not watching on BBC iPlayer, new episodes are slated to arrive each week until the fourth and final chapter airs on November 2nd on BBC Scotland and November 4th on BBC Two respectively.


Season 2 of Guilt is airing weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays on BBC Scotland and BBC Two while all episodes are available now on BBC iPlayer.
