Vigil Series 2: Cast & Storyline
We don’t know what will happen in season two yet, but we do know that the crew will go back to Scotland to film it. In the first season, Detective Chief Inspector Amy Silva of the Scottish Police Service was sent to HMS Vigil, a nuclear-powered Vanguard-class ballistic missile submarine, to look into a death on board. This happened soon after a Scottish fishing trawler went missing for unknown reasons.
She and her colleagues’ investigations on land put the police in conflict with the Royal Navy and MI5, which is the British Security Service. The events in the story are similar to what happened to the Royal Navy submarine HMS Vigilant.

The sinking of the FV Antares by the nuclear-powered Royal Navy submarine HMS Trenchant in the Firth of Clyde in 1990 is similar to what happened to the fictional trawler Mhairi Finnea in the series. Families of the crew of the Antares were upset by scenes of the Mhairi Finnea sinking, but the BBC denied that the drama was based on or inspired by a real-life event.
Vigil Series 2: Date of Release
The second season of Vigil will start in March 2022. Even though filming hasn’t started yet, we’re going to guess that it won’t come out until at least 2023.
