Want to watch The Capture season 2? Here's how you can stream the long-awaited second season of this British surveillance thriller.

The Capture's first season graced our screens in 2019, and this second outing will pick up with DI Rachel Carey (Holliday Grainger) at the heart of a new conspiracy.

Can we trust anything that we really see?

Here's how to watch The Capture season 2 wherever you are in the world right now so you can get stuck into this thrilling new drama.
