Vigil season 2 preview

Vigil season 2 reunites DCI Amy Silva (Suranne Jones) and DS Kirsten Longacre (Rose Leslie), with the pair this time looking to uncover dark secrets about the murky world of drone warfare.

Two years on from the original series, the new six-episode sophomore run sees Amy and Kirsten tasked with solving the riddle of a spate of deaths at a Scottish weapons test site, in a high-stakes case which eventually takes them to the Middle East. 

This follow up season more than met expectations set by its predecessor (the most-watched new drama launch in UK TV history since Bodyguard.)

To enjoy Silva and Longacre's latest investigation, use our guide below to watch Vigil season 2, no matter where you are in the world.
