BRON Studios and Headline Pictures has confirmed that production is underway in Dublin on the second season of their multi-IFTA winning drama, Kin.

The eight-episode one-hour crime drama has enjoyed success with international critical acclaim and huge ratings in key markets. Kin scooped six awards including Best Drama at the 2022 IFTA Film & Drama Awards earlier this year. McKenna picked up Best Script, while the cast took every acting award on offer with Sam Keeley and Clare Dunne receiving the Leading Actor awards along with Maria Doyle Kennedy and Ciarán Hinds earning the Supporting Actor awards.

Returning cast for season two includes Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Clare Dunne (Herself), Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones), Sam Keeley (Joe vs Carole), Emmett J. Scanlan (Peaky Blinders), Maria Doyle Kennedy (Outlander), and Yasmin Seky. Francis Magee has been upped to series regular this season.

Kin is produced by BRON Studios and Headline Pictures, in association with RTÉ, with support by Screen Ireland. Peter McKenna (The Last Kingdom, Red Rock) is the series showrunner/executive producer, writer, and creator. Episodic directors are Felix Thompson (The Letter for the King), directing partners Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor (Helen), and Kate Dolan (You Are Not My Mother).

James Flynn (Vikings, Into the Badlands) is producing through his Metropolitan Films banner, with Emma Fleischer on as supervising producer and Gemma O’Shaughnessy as line producer. Dermot Horan and David Crean are executive producers for RTÉ and Andrew Byrne executive producer for Screen Ireland.

The new season will see the Kinsella’s as the top dogs in Dublin following their run in with Eamon Cunningham at the end of season one. They have incurred the wrath of an enemy even more dangerous than him and where once there were unbreakable bonds of blood and family, now there is only suspicion, distrust, and resentment. However, the greatest threat to the family emerges from within, in the shape of a ruthless, bullying, agent of chaos. Fortunately, from positions of great adversity the boldest plans are often forged and so it is with the Kinsella’s.

Executive producers on the series are BRON Studios’ David Davoli (Ten Percent, That Dirty Black Bag), Samantha Thomas (Jessica Jones, Daredevil), Steven Thibault (Pieces of a Woman, Capone) and Aaron L. Gilbert (Bombshell, Joker, Fences), Headline Pictures’ Christian Baute (Ten Percent, Man in the High Castle), Laurence Lenica and Franck Calderon, and Ciarán Donnelly (Wheel of Time) who is also the co-creator.

Global licensing partners include AMC Networks in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, Spain, and Portugal, joining RTÉ in Ireland, Viaplay in Scandinavia and NPO in Netherlands. BRON Releasing is handling worldwide sales.

A hit with both audiences and critics, series one of Kin had a consolidated average of over 621,000 viewers on RTÉ One and 2.7 million streams on RTÉ Player to date, making it the most successful drama in Ireland last year.

IFTN previously reported that season two and three will be filmed together this year.
