BBC Three’s Wreck returns on Tuesday 26 March

Date Posted: March 11, 2024

The second series of comedy horror Wreck, which filmed on location in Northern Ireland,, will launch on Tuesday, 26th March, at 10pm  on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer.

Made with funding from Northern Ireland Screen, Wreck boasts a host of local talent including director  Chris Baugh (Boys from County Hell) producer Brendan Mullin (Dalgliesh) and actress Thaddea Graham (Sex Education).Created and written by Ryan J. Brown, Wreck series two is set in the months after the events of series one’s shocking blood-soaked conclusion. We re-join Jamie, Vivian and their found family of survivors back on land, as they strike back against Velorum, the corporate murder machine that claimed Jamie’s sister. In a daring and desperate attempt to bring the Company down, the gang go undercover to infiltrate Velorum’s newest venture – an exclusive ‘wellness’ festival for millionaires in the remote Slovenian countryside. Relationships fray, blood pours, and not everyone will be making it out alive. It’s going to be a cleansing experience…
