'Gritty' BBC crime drama has perfect Rotten Tomatoes score and underrated cast

The show has received rave reviews from critics and audiences

A 'gritty' BBC crime drama is returning to TV and fans are beside themselves with excitement.

It seems at the minute, us Brits are absolutely spoilt for choice when it comes to good telly.

Whether we're getting way too invested in The Traitors, or bingeing our way through Netflix's Fool Me Once, we just can't get enough!

But right now, all eyes are on an exceptionally gritty BBC drama that boasts an incredible Rotten Tomatoes score of 100 percent.

We are, indeed, talking about Kin.

The BBC show, which first released in 2021, is based around a fictional Dublin family embroiled in gangland wars.

In an 'unexpected slow burn' filled with 'tension', Aiden Gillen and Ciaran Hinds star as rival gang leaders, Frank Kinsella and Eamon Cunningham.

The drama's 100 percent Rotten Tomatoes score and 84 percent audience rating certainly doesn't lie, with one reviewer penning: "Kin succeeds because of the way it knits character and action together so seamlessly within its carefully drawn and defined locations."

BBC's 'gritty' crime drama Kin is getting rave reviews.

And another added: "Kin boasts a tight-knit ensemble cast of Irish power players. The acting is superb and grounded, but with this cast, that's to be expected."

And to make things even more exciting, the BBC recently announced a second season is on its way.

The broadcaster announced the return of the show, teasing: "If you found the first series exciting… just wait until you see the twists and turns in series two."

They continued: "The critically acclaimed eight-part series continues the story of the Kinsella family, who are now at the top of the crime game in Dublin, but their triumph has incurred the enmity of an enemy even more dangerous than Eamon Cunningham, and where once there were unbreakable bonds of blood and family, there is only suspicion, distrust, and resentment."

The drama will soon be getting its second series.

Jennifer Ebell, EVP of EMEA Sales and Acquisitions at FIFTH SEASON, added: "The Kinsellas are back and the stakes are higher than ever.

"Season two of this family crime drama is explosive and we are pleased the BBC joins the growing number of our international partners."

Fans are, of course, beside themselves with this news, with one saying: "Look forward to it. Loved the first series."

And another said: "Absolutely can't wait for Season Two."

Neither can we!

Season 1 of Kin is currently available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
