London Kills Plot: What is it about?
With one of the most famous cities in the world as its backdrop, London Kills offers us drama in style. The main lead of the show is Detective David Bradford whose experience and brains make him the right choice for leader of the elite murder solving group. David suddenly returns to work to take over a new murder case of an MP’s son. The body of the deceased is found hanging from a tree with multiple stab wounds. DS Vivienne Cole is not very thrilled to hand over the case to DI Bradford, and we can see the dynamic between the two as she questions him about his sudden return. She knows more than she is letting on and the relationship between the two seems more than just professional.
Each episode has a new murder, but the central plot of the show is the mysterious disappearance of David Bradford’s wife. She has been missing for almost three months, and the brilliant detective is unable to solve this one case. He seems to think that she has simply gone away and is not ready to contact him, which gives us the idea that all was not well between them. Adding some fuel to this fire is Vivienne’s insistence that his wife must be dead. As each murder takes them into a deeper and bigger conspiracy, the disappearance of David’s wife seems to connect to the crimes.
Along with the senior detectives DI David Bradford and DS Vivienne Cole, the group comprises of DC Rob Brady and the eager but inexperienced trainee DC Billie Fitzgerald. It is impressive to see how their leader both inspires them and helps them to work as a team. The sinister nature of the crimes in the show will have you on the edge of your seat. The finale of season 1 ends with a twist which will leave you with the burning question, what happened to David’s wife?
In season 2, we find out that Amber indeed didn’t kill the detective’s wife. We finally also get to know how Carly had disappeared and what exactly happened to her.
This show won’t disappoint you if you are looking for a spellbinding crime thriller. The intensity of the show, thanks to its short run time of five episodes, will have you hooked. The show works on so many levels and does a great job of standing out in this genre. Yes, there are many great crime shows for you to stream but watch London Kills for its great backdrop of London city and the tight storytelling.
London Kills Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere?
London Kills season 2 premiered on July 15, 2019. All five episodes were aired on the same day. After season 1 released February 25, 2019, the ending left us with several unanswered questions. After the shocking finale, viewers wanted to find out what happened to Carly Bradford. Well, we did get that answered in season 2, but at the same time, there are still a few questions lingering in our mind.
Whether the makers intended that way or do they have plans to make another season we don’t know yet. Our best guess is that if the show is renewed, London Kills season 3 can release sometime in 2021.
