EXCLUSIVE:

Crime comedy hit Deadloch, from co-creators Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan, has been renewed for a second season by Prime Video.

Production on the 6-part second season will commence later this year in the Top End of Australia with Kate Box and Madeleine Sami returning as Dulcie Collins and Eddie Redcliffe, respectively. Filming will also take place at Screen Queensland Studios, Brisbane.

The detective duo are in Darwin investigating the death of Eddie’s former policing partner, Bushy, but when the bodies of two Top End icons are discovered in a remote town, they are flung into a new sweatier, stickier investigation.

Also reprising their roles are Nina Oyama as Abby Matsuda and Alicia Gardiner as Cath York, Dulcie’s wife.

Sarah Christie, senior development executive, Amazon MGM Studios said, “We are thrilled that Deadloch will be returning for a second season to give our global Prime Video customers another dose of its unique blend of Australian humour and gripping mystery, this time set against the visually stunning Northern Territory landscape.

“The success of the first season, which has become a critical darling and cultivated a passionate fanbase, is a testament to the brilliant creative force of Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan. It’s wonderful to be continuing our collaboration with them, Guesswork Television and OK Great Productions, and to bring back our outstanding cast in Kate Box, Madeleine Sami, Nina Oyama and Alicia Gardiner. We can’t wait to share more from the world of Deadloch with fans around the world.”

“We are so excited to head to the Top End for a sticky, sweaty and filthy Season Two,” said Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan, creators, writers and executive producers. “Both of us are thrilled to be teaming up again with comedy angels Kate Box, Madeleine Sami, Nina Oyama and Alicia Gardiner and we can’t wait to work with a new bunch of cast members and some massive f***ing crocodiles.”

“Smart, slyly satirical and flat out funny, Season Two picks up where season one left off,” said Kevin Whyte and Tanya Phegan, Executive Producers, Guesswork Television. “Once again Amazon MGM Studios and Prime Video have given us the opportunity to take the Kates’ story to every corner of the planet and our new partners Screen Territory and Screen Queensland have enabled us to leave the puffers behind and head north for the next instalment. We can’t wait to get back on location with this extraordinary team.”

“It’s fantastic that Deadloch’s second season will be made at Screen Queensland Studios, Brisbane as well as utilising our local waterways,” said Jacqui Feeney, CEO, Screen Queensland. “Screen Queensland is passionate about supporting Australian drama production and we look forward to welcoming the creative team behind this internationally acclaimed series to Brisbane.”

“Screen Territory is delighted to continue its production relationship with Prime Video and for the first time Guesswork Television in welcoming Deadloch Season Two to the Northern Territory.” said Jennie Hughes, Director of Screen Territory.

“Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan are immensely talented creatives and we look forward to their unique and quirky take on the Northern Territory’s ‘Top End’ through the adventures of comedic detective duo Dulcie and Eddie. We are excited to support this terrific project which will deliver more opportunities for our local cast and crew and anticipate the production of a fantastic series for Deadloch fans with a unique Territorian twist.”

Deadloch is also nominated for Best Scripted Comedy Program in the Logie Awards with Kate Box and Madeleine Sami as Best Lead Actress in a Comedy.

Deadloch Season Two is created and written by Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan who also serve as executive producers alongside Kevin Whyte and Tanya Phegan from Guesswork Television. Andy Walker is the producer and the series will be directed by Beck Cole and Gracie Otto.
