Aussie black comedy Deadloch was easily one of the best television shows to emerge in 2023. 

In a year overshadowed by acting and writing strikes abroad, the quirky feminist noir created by Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan became an instant cult classic, with fans both in Australia and overseas falling in love with the Tasmanian town, endearing cops and resident cannibal seal.

Will there be a season two of Deadloch?

Fans have been holding their breath as they wait for news of a second season of Deadloch and in July 2024, it was finally confirmed the show would be back for a second season – and this time, the girls are heading to the Northern Territory.

“I mean, it’s pretty obvious from the way Season One ended that we’re gonna head up north,” writer Kate McLennan previously told WHO.

“We’re just really happy to be basking in the success of season one,” added Kate McCartney as the cast reunited at the 2024 AACTA Awards, where the show had been nominated for numerous awards.

“We are so excited to head to the Top End for a sticky, sweaty and filthy Season Two,” they both added following news of the shows renewal. “Both of us are thrilled to be teaming up again with comedy angels Kate Box, Madeleine Sami, Nina Oyama and Alicia Gardiner and we can’t wait to work with a new bunch of cast members and some massive f***ing crocodiles.”

Who stars in Deadloch?

Season one of Deadloch saw Kate Box and Madeline Same join forces as Dulcie and Eddie; two cops tasked with the mission of solving a killing spree. 

“Originally, we were going to cast ourselves in those roles,” Kate McLennan tells WHO, “then we realised that those characters needed actors who were actually able to act…which we can’t do.”

“Madeline and Kate just take it and elevate it and find so much nuance and silliness and heart and camaraderie with each other….they’re amazing. I mean, [Dulcie and Eddie] are such a gift to write…and we get to draw on elements of our own personalities, but amped up.”

Joining Kate and Madeline in season one is a long list of talented Aussie names including Nina Oyama, Alicia Gardiner, Pamela Rabe, Katie Robertson, Kartanya Maynard, Mia Morrissey, Tom Ballard and Susie Youssef.
