Filming has begun in Edinburgh on the second season of Jess Brittain’s university-set psychological thriller Clique for BBC Three.
The series, which explores the power of friendship between three young, ambitious women, will once again feature Synnove Karlsen as Holly, Sophia Brown as Louise and Rachel Hurd-Wood as Rachel.
Joining the original cast is an ensemble of upcoming British talent including Leo Suter (Victoria, Bad Education), Barney Harris (The Hollow Crown), Imogen King (Darkest Hour), Stuart Campbell (Outlander), Izuka Hoyle (Mary, Queen of Scots).
Contrasting with the first series, which saw Holly being drawn to a group of captivating, confident but troubled young women, this series will see Holly face a decidedly different clique, consisting of a band of brothers.
Led by charming and handsome Jack (Leo Suter), the boys’ clique is a group of carefree rebels, but when they become embroiled in a campus-wide scandal, Holly become torn between her feeling of kinship for them and her impending sense of their danger. The drama will be compounded by the ever watchful presence of psychopath Rachel (Rachel Hurd-Wood).
"It's great to have the opportunity to return to the world of Clique to tell another story,” said writer/creator and executive producer Jess Brittain, “I love writing for new and exciting young actors and can't think of a better place than BBC Three to do that."
The series is set to air later this year on BBC Three.
