Keeping Faith series 2 – what time is the BBC show on tonight and how many episodes are in the second series?

AFTER smashing BBC iPlayer records for the most viewed non-network show on the service, Keeping Faith is back on our screens.

With fans unable to contain their excitement for the Welsh thriller's return, here's all you need to know about season two…

When does Keeping Faith start on BBC One?

Keeping Faith starts TONIGHT (Tuesday, July 23, 2019) on BBC one at 9pm.

The six-part thriller will air each week in 60-minute episodes. It goes up against How the Middle Class Ruined Britain on BBC Two, Caught on Camera on ITV and 24 Hours in A&E on Channel 4.

Keeping Faith has already aired its Welsh language version, titled Un Bore Mercher, on the channel S4C – with the series launching in May 2019.

Series one was first broadcast on BBC Wales in November 2017 and attracted the highest audience for a non-network drama shown in the country for over two decades.

All episodes were then available to watch on the BBC iPlayer from April and it again broke records with over 9.5million requests to view.

Keeping Faith marks the first series that an original BBC Wales drama has been shown on the BBC One network.

Who's in the cast with Eve Myles?

Former Torchwood and Broadchurch star Eve Myles returns as the protagonist Faith Howells, a lawyer and new-mother.

Although born in Powys, the actress specifically learnt Welsh for the part as the series was filmed concurrently in both English and Welsh.

She is joined again by her real-life husband Bradley Freegard, who played her mysterious on-screen spouse Evan Howells in the first season.

Faith's lover Steve Baldini – played by Mark Lewis Jones – is also back for season two judging by photos released of the set.

Demi Letherby plays Alys Howells, Faith's rebellious daughter, while Lacey Jones plays Megan Howells, their well behaved second child.

Hannah Daniel returns to our screens as Cerys Jones – the junior associate at the Howells firm.

What's the show about?

The second season will pick up 18 months after Evan Howell's return. Evan is Faith's husband who mysteriously disappeared in the first season after the birth of their first child.

The first season follows Faith Howell, a yellow-mac wearing lawyer, as she searches for her missing husband.

In her quest to find the truth about what happened, Faith is plunged into a web of lies and deceit as she fights to protect her family and her own sanity.

BBC Wales Nick Andrews head of commissioning said, “This series has been a real gem from start to finish – and it’s a testament to the strength of drama coming out of Wales right now.

“I’m so proud that audiences across the UK will now get to enjoy everything Keeping Faith has to offer."
