The second series of Sky Living's Bedlam will return to screens on 6th June. The spooky series will welcome ex-Eastender Lacey Turner to the cast along with other new faces in the form of Gemma Chan, Jack Roth and Nikesh Patel.

Lacey Turner commented "I am really excited about taking part in the second series of Bedlam! It's a great story with brilliant writing and a fantastic cast! Ellie is a really interesting and conflicted character I'm looking forward to playing her and seeing where the story takes her."

Synopsis

The new series opens with Ellie (Lacey Turner), a paramedic, who like Jed has struggled to accept her special ďabilityĒ to see ghosts. She is a determined girl who's fought hard for a normal life - but instead is flung into an extraordinary world. After hearing rumours about Jed from his time spent on the psychiatric ward, she decides to try and track him down, looking for answers. His last known address leads her to Bedlam Heights, where she starts to meet some of the buildings inhabitants Ė both dead and alive.

After the dramatic events of the previous series, Molly and Kate (Charlotte Salt) fled the apartment to go travelling across Asia. Kate has now returned home to visit her father, Warren, seeking an explanation she confronts him about the Bettany family secrets. Kate returns to her apartment to find that her father has moved some new tenants in: Dan (Nikesh Patel), her fatherís new right hand man and Max (Jack Roth), who works in the newly opened Bedlam Heights Bar. Whilst trying to track her father down, Kate bumps into an old friend, Kiera (Gemma Chan), who has also moved into the building. But itís not long before the new inhabitants start to realise that something strange is going on inside the building, something dark and dangerous.


Anne Mensah, Head of Drama, Sky said; "We have huge ambitions for Bedlam. The show is a unique combination of engaging relationship drama and real scares. Our fantastic cast are delivering wonderfully on the emotional material and our great production team seem determined to terrify the audience. Itís a fantastic mix."
