Arlington, VA; June 15, 2017 - PBS Distribution announced it is releasing the critically acclaimed Anglo-French crime drama THE TUNNEL: SABOTAGE SEASON 2
on DVD and Blu-ray. The pragmatic and meticulous Commander Elise Wassermann, played by Clémence Poésy (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II
), and laconic but brilliant DCI Karl Roebuck, played by the International Emmy Award-winning Stephen Dillane (Game of Thrones
), return for the second season of Ben Richards' series.
18 months on from the devastating conclusion of Season 1
, the newly promoted Commander Wassermann and the grieving DCI Roebuck have been leading separate lives until two seemingly isolated events bring them back together: a plane crash in the English Channel, killing everyone on board, and a couple abducted from The Tunnel, leaving behind their traumatised child.
On the surface the two cases appear to be unconnected. But as the ensuing investigation moves between the coasts of Kent and northern France, it reveals the murderous crusade of a terrorist cell. As Wassermann and Roebuck pick their way through the clues thrown up by a vast field of debris, forging connections as they go, they are confronted with sinister and complicated forces at play. In a terrifying game of brinksmanship, they risk everything in the pursuit of true justice.
