In 2014 Elisabeth Moss won her first Golden Globe for her portrayal of Detective Robin in the first season of “Top of the Lake.” Now the actress is reprising her award-winning role in the second season, which takes place four years after the events of the first. SundanceTV released the first image (above) which features Moss getting back to business.
The first season of Jane Campion’s critically acclaimed miniseries followed Sydney-based police detective Robin (Moss) returning to her hometown in New Zealand to investigate the disappearance of a local 12-year-old girl. Season 2 will take place in Sydney and center around the death of an unidentified girl whose body washes up on to Sydney’s Bondi Beach. The new season also includes the addition of Nicole Kidman and “Game of Thrones” actress Gwendoline Christie.
“Top of the Lake’s” first season was nominated for a total of eight Emmys, taking home the Best Cinematography trophy.
Campion will once again direct the miniseries, along with new co-director Ariel Kleiman. Campion and Gerard Lee are co-writers.
“Top of the Lake” season 2 will premiere in 2017.
