Performing police duties is an ordeal but the title character of the new procedural drama on BBC One referred to as “River” is coping with it brilliantly. The series is now, however, on the edge waiting for the verdict of the developers.
Criminals are to be exposed in the fresh procedural project on BBC One called simply as “River” with the principal guy of the story serving as a true police officer with honor as well as an irresistible desire to weed this world out of criminals.
Coming as a project developed in the UK, the series is now an integral line in the programming list of BBC One. Outside its home country, the project is delivered by the giant network called Netflix which producers have bought the license for streaming it universally including surely such countries as United States, Australia, and Canada.
The premiere on both BBC One and Netflix was held practically simultaneously in fall 2015.
The acting cast is led by Stellan Skarsg?rd performing the central role and is joined also by Nicola Walker, Georgina Rich, Adeel Akhtar, Owen Teale, Sorcha Cusack, Eddie Marsan, Turlough Convery, Michael Maloney Lesley Manville, and Jim Norton.
As for the concrete inspirer of the show, it is named Abi Morgan. By the way, having a flair for the detective genre, she has got a sweeping victory winning an Emmy for the screenwriting specifically.
Surely, this charming lady though being genius cannot walk alone when solving all production issues. So she is assisted by a magnificent executive team that includes her and such names as Jane Featherstone, Manda Levin, and Lucy Richer. As for the fabrication company, it is referred to as Kudos. And now it is high time we turned to the very plot.
If to be brief enough, all events that unfold here come down to the central hero named John River. So as you see now, the title is rather speaking. So he is a genius and an overwhelmingly talented as well as experienced investigator serving as a police officer at Metropolitan Police Service. But the idea of the story lies in that he is haunted by the ghosts of murder victims. It sounds like catchy, doesn’t it?
As for the ratings
The first commentaries towards the show are very much favorable. Thus, the series has been accepted with flying flowers though being quite young so far. We should expect, consequently, that it is intended to stick around on two channels for the sequential several years. Plenty of viewers are noting specifically the twists and turns of the story as well as the scrupulously created characters standing as advantages here.
When touching the point of resumption
Unfortunately, with the autumn debut, the developers turned to become tight-lipped about even the feasibility of the series revival. So nothing can be said, thus, about the River season 2 release date. If everything is all right and the announcement comes, we can expect the premiere in this fall. But this is only a presumption. Let’s follow official resources together with our service.
Update: River Season 2
Things are now more complicated than they seemed. To start with, the producers are not against a continuation as such. However, the way everyone in the know talks about the series, it looks like the writers must have a really amazing idea before they can do anything. Before they even try. And that is how things are.
Let us all hope that the writers will come up with something brilliant. Otherwise, we might never see a new episode of River.
