Virgin Media Television announces TX date for second season of Irish drama Blood
13 Feb 2020 : News Desk
Season two of Irish drama, Blood.
Virgin Media Television has announced that series two of acclaimed Irish drama Blood will broadcast from 9pm on Monday 24th February on Virgin Media One.

Commissioned by VMTV, Blood has been one of the most successful Irish dramas to date, selling in over 65 territories around the world and more recently, winning a prestigious Writers’ Guild of Great Britain Award.

Starring Adrian Dunbar, the brand new series sees his character Jim Hogan reeling from the controversial death of his wife Mary and dealing with the shock arrest of his eldest daughter Fiona for murder as his family crumbles around him.

Speaking at the launch, Bill Malone, Virgin Media Television Director of Content said:

“Blood has been central to VMTV’s strategy of high-quality Irish programming with global ambition and has been a real success story for Irish drama. We are thrilled with the worldwide success of Blood to date, and series 2 is a real thriller from the off, with a car accident, a body, and a murder mystery – and that’s just episode one. You don’t have to have seen the first series to be gripped by this thriller and once again, writer Sophie Petzal and cast, led by Adrian Dunbar, have delivered a masterclass.”

The full series of Blood season one on the Virgin Media Player.
