Emmett confirms The Fall series 2 starts shooting in February

Emmett J Scanlan has revealed he will start work on the second series of hit thriller series The Fall in February.

The former Hollyoaks actor played policeman Glen Martin in the BBC2 series and tweeted about starting work on the follow up.

He tweeted: "Start shooting The Fall season 2 next February. By the sound of it, it's gonna be f****** awesome. Can't wait..."

The series about a serial killer, played by Jamie Dornan, being pursued by Gillian Anderson's ruthless detective, ended with a cliffhanger in June when it looked as though the murderer would escape justice.

The Fall screened on BBC Two and it was announced in May, before the series had ended, that there would be a second run.
