The images feature Jamie Dornan who resumes his role as Elliot Stanley, a man looking to rediscover his true identity following his memory loss, alongside Danielle Macdonald, as former police officer Helen Chambers, following their adventure in the Australian Outback.

Set against the striking backdrop of Ireland, in season two the pair are confronted by friends and foes as they attempt to uncover the secrets of Elliot’s past. As Elliot and Helen are dragged into a longstanding family feud, the brand new season introduces a raft of new characters including Detective Ruairi Slater (Conor MacNeill, Industry, The Fall), Niamh Cassidy (Olwen Fouéré, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Northman) and the McDonnell family – Donal (Diarmaid Murtagh, Vikings, Outlander), Orla (Nessa Matthews, Fair City), Fergal (Mark McKenna, Sing Street, One of Us is Lying), and Frank (Francis Magee, Kin, Then You Run).

Full of shocking plot twists and the same off-beat comedy that made season one a global success, The Tourist is set to return next year with even more intriguing characters and intense action.
