The first instalment of the drama series focused on teacher Laura Nielson (played by Joanne Froggatt) who was doing everything in her power to prove she had been raped by a well-respected surgeon she dated called Andrew (Ioan Gruffudd).
The show dealt with themes of rape, victim blaming and uncovering the truth. It certainly seemed to have viewers gripped, with fans on Twitter describing it as 'fantastic', 'amazing' and 'first class drama'.
As Andrew's criminal activity unfolded, it turned out that behind his charming facade, he was a man who had drugged, assaulted and raped at least 17 women.
Laura found out about all of this when she uncovered secret recordings that Andrew had made of each of his victims, including DI Vanessa Harmon (played by Shelley Conn).
She handed this evidence to the police and with Andrew's son, Luke, realising the truth about his dad and a warrant out for his arrest, the surgeon goes on the run.
Andrew was found dead in marshland during the Season 1 finale and it left viewers wondering what had happened.
Showrunners Harry and Jack Williams confirmed the second series will be a classic whodunit, exploring a list of suspects. Could it be Laura? His son Luke? Or many another one of Andrew's victims?
"There are certainly a few suspects and we hope to explore that further," Harry told The Mirror. "Andrew has been missing for several weeks and then we see his dead body in the empty marshlands. The question is, what happened in those missing weeks that led to Andrew's demise?"
Brother Jack added: "We don't want to do it cynically - it will be a new set of lies and perceptions. We want to give ourselves time, it will probably be the year after next. I hope people feel happy to wait."
