  • News

Crime 2As exclusively confirmed by Production Intelligence in January, a second series of Irvine Welsh’s Crime has been greenlit. 


Buccaneer Media and Off Grid Film and TV produce the gritty series, this time to premiere on ITVX ahead of a linear transmission on ITV. 

Dougray Scott returns as troubled detective Ray Lennox in the drama, scripted by Trainspotting author Welsh alongside long-standing screenwriting partner, Dean Cavanagh. Filming takes place in Scotland this this summer. 

Scott, who also exec produces, said: “Making Crime has been one of the most exhilarating experiences of my career. I’m so grateful to get to work once again with the great Irvine Welsh, my wonderful producing partner Tony Wood and all at Buccaneer and ITV. I feel very fortunate.”

Welsh added: “I loved working on the first season of Crime, and Dean Cavanagh and myself are already having a blast developing scripts for the second series. It was wonderful to work with such a talented cast and we hope to push those memorable characters further this time. No more Mister Nice Guy from Dean and I.”
