Who wrote Suspect on Channel 4? And will there be a season 2?

Suspect on Channel 4 is the next TV obsession for crime fiction fans, but who wrote it?

The series is unlike any other drama as viewers can watch back-to-back episodes, treating fans to a double screening each night until the final episode on Wednesday (June 22, 2022).

After the first two episodes aired last night, viewers clung to the edge of their seats!

So who wrote the gripping series and will there be a season 2?

Who wrote Suspect on Channel 4?

Suspect tells the heartbreaking story of a seasoned detective, Danny, who finds his estranged daughter dead in the hospital morgue.

You had to have a heart of stone not to be afraid as Danny broke down at the sight of his dead daughter Christina.

Although the autopsy reveals that she died of suicide, Danny refuses to accept it and sets out to uncover the truth about his daughter’s death.

On his crusade, however, the desperate detective learns more about his daughter’s increasingly dark life and his own failure as a father.

The highly anticipated detective series was written by Matt Baker.

What did Matt Baker write before?

Matt Baker is a television screenwriter best known for writing the Britbox original Hotel Portofino, also out this year.

The series follows an English family who bring the drama and mayhem to Italy when they open a luxury hotel on the Italian Riviera.

He also wrote the crime drama Professor T, about an OCD lecturer who spends his free time solving crimes.

Actor Ben Miller led the cast of Professor T and also appears in the cast of Suspect.

Author Matt Baker — unrelated to the TV host of the same name — is also known for his work on Before We Die, another crime drama.

The series followed detective DI Hannah.

The boss forced her to do desk work in the hope that she would retire out of boredom.

However, when her colleague goes missing, she embarks on a chaotic manhunt.

Will there be a Suspect season 2?

There are only eight episodes of Suspect’s first season, and fans say that’s not enough!

After the series’ strong start, viewers are all hooked on the thriller and excited to see if there will be a second season.

So will there be another season for the Channel 4 series?

Channel 4 has not yet confirmed if there will be a second season of Suspect.

However, after the huge reaction from fans, there is no reason for Channel 4 not to consider another season for the detective series.

We love the concept of eight suspects spread across eight episodes, and it could return with a new story and a new cast.

Watch this space!

Suspect will continue on Monday, June 20 at 9:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 21 at the same time on Channel 4, ending on Wednesday, June 22, 2022.
