What is the second series of The Bay about?
The Bay is returning to ITV1 for a six-part second series following the dramatic events of 2019.
The trailer (shown below) shows Lisa Armstrong and Med arriving at a house on Williamson Road after a shooting resulted in a death.
We were told that there may have been “bad blood in the family” and that the killer “knew what they were doing”.
ITV tells us: “The second series starts with Lisa Armstrong at a low point.
“She’s being forced to do minor policing while watching Med grow stronger.
“But a new case with a shocking murder in a loving family unexpectedly brings Lisa back to the front.
“She has to get under the skin of a new family and prove her worth; to your colleagues, your family and yourself. “

How did the Bay series end?
The Bay drew an impressive 7.3 million viewers for the final episode of the first series.
In the closing scenes, Lisa discovered her daughter Abbie’s connection with the drug dealer Vincent and had him arrested.
Pregnant teenager Holly did NOT murder her twin Dylan. The killer was revealed to be her friend Sam.
He confessed everything to Lisa – that he had made Holly pregnant and that he was planning to start a new life with her in Manchester.
Sam also revealed that he killed Dylan, albeit accidentally, while trying to prevent her from leaving.
In one of the closing scenes of the sixth episode, we learned that Sam was in prison.
Some viewers were disappointed that so many plot questions remained unanswered.
