RTÉ and ITVX have revealed a first look at the cast of the second season of The Dry, which will air on RTÉ One and RTÉ Player later in the spring.

The 8-part comedy drama is produced by Oscar-nominated production company Element Pictures (Poor Things, Normal People, The Gallows Pole), a Fremantle company for RTÉ and ITVX, in association with Screen Ireland, Coimisiún na Meán and ITV Studios.  

The series is written by IFTA-nominated screenwriter Nancy Harris (Dates) and directed by Paddy Breathnach (Viva, Rosie). Cast included in the first look images are Roisin Gallagher (The Lovers), Sam Keeley (KIN), Ciarán Hinds (Belfast), Pom Boyd (Frank of Ireland), Thommas Kane Byrne (Dead Still), Adam Richardson (Vikings: Valhalla) and Siobhán Cullen (Obituary).

Other cast members this season include Michael McElhatton (Game of Thrones), Seán Doyle (Normal People), Helen Norton (Cracks), Ruth Codd (The Midnight Club), as well as returning cast members Moe Dunford (Vikings) and Emmanuel Okoye (Conversations with Friends).

The synopsis for the second series is described as follows: “The storyline picks up seven months on from the events of the first series, and we now meet the Sheridans in their new normal. To all outward appearances, it seems like the family is relatively content: Shiv’s been sober, celibate, and solvent for six months, Ant has hung onto his job at the estate agents and his relationship with Max, and Caroline’s making up for a lost time by shagging everyone she meets on Tinder. So far, so normal… Or is it? After all, how normal is it for three grown adults to still be living at home with their parents? Are the Sheridan’s really happy with this new status quo, or have they just rearranged their dysfunction and found another groove of denial to fit into?” 

“Shiv is determined to get sobriety right this time, to cut the toxic influences out of her life for good. But what if the biggest threat to Shiv’s stability turns out to be closer to home? Giving up alcohol is one thing…but what about giving up your family?”

The Dry series 2 is an 8 x 30 mins drama commissioned by Dermot Horan, Director of Acquisitions and Co-Productions for RTÉ and ITV’s Head of Scripted Comedy Nana Hughes for ITVX. Emma Norton, Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe are executive producers for Element Pictures, alongside Nancy Harris and Paddy Breathnach. Ingrid Goodwin is the series producer. Filming took place in and around Dublin. ITV Studios are responsible for the international distribution of The Dry series 2.  

The second series will air on RTÉ One and RTÉ Player later in the spring, and will stream exclusively on ITVX in the UK from the 14th March. The first series is available to watch on RTÉ Player now.
