Jamie Dornan’s The Tourist is stranded no more.
Months after the being officially abandoned by original U.S. distributer Max, the amnesia-themed thriller’s forthcoming second season has been picked up by Netflix. Season 2 will bow on Feb. 29. (Netflix has also secured rights to the UK series’ first season, which will arrive Feb. 1.)
The Tourist‘s inaugural six-episode season, which Max co-produced, premiered stateside on the streamer formerly known as HBO Max in March 2022. When its renewal was officially announced by BBC earlier this year, Max was no longer listed as a producer. (According to sources, Season 1 underperformed for Max.)
Season 2 of The Tourist, production of which wrapped over the summer, finds Dornan’s memory-challenged character Elliot and Probationary Constable Helen Chambers (the returning Danielle Macdonald) heading to Ireland as Elliott attempts to rediscover his roots. He’s quickly dragged into his past life, with dire consequences.
“I’m incredibly excited to continue the story with The Tourist,” Dornan said in a statement back in February. “[Series creators] Harry and Jack Williams are brilliant writers and I can’t wait for audiences to see how well Ireland and its characters are utilized to keep them guessing as the tale progresses.”
