Baptiste Season 2 promises to be one of the most talked-about TV shows of the year, once again following the life and career of a retired police investigator, Julien Baptiste who finds himself in the middle of a new case. Here’s how to watch Baptiste Season 2 online anywhere in the world.

The new season will take viewers into Budapest’s secretive and corrupt underworld, and no doubt have us guessing until the very last episode. 

Tchéky Karyo who plays Julien Baptiste told us his character is more troubled than ever before. He said: "In the present day, we see Julien down and yelling at the world with his pain. His family’s a wreck. People love this character because you can rely on him but now he’s losing his temper and drinking. It’s a special journey for him this time. There are a lot of amazing surprises..."

It sounds like the new season will have us on the edge of our seats once again, especially as it has been hinted that Julien Baptiste is not the man we knew before. The BBC synopsis for the new season says: "After enduring a horrific personal tragedy, Julien has pushed his wife Celia away and is looking for any distraction — whether that be the bottom of a bottle or a new case — to consume him".
