The English detective series “The Bay”, broadcast in France on France 2, has just been renewed for a second season which will be done without Morven Christie (agent Lisa Armstrong). Who will replace her?
Good news for fans of The Bay: ITV has just announced its renewal for a season 3. Offered on France 2 in early January, the detective series had at the time not yet been broadcast across the Channel, making the prospect of ‘a season 3 still uncertain. Its audience success in England and France therefore convinced the channel to order a new round of episodes.
Small change however, Morven Christie, who played Agent Lisa Armstrong for the first two seasons will not return. She will be replaced by Marsha Thomason, an English actress whose face you may not be unfamiliar with. She started her career playing Eddie Murphy’s wife in The Haunted Mansion and the 999 Ghosts, before starring in the first two seasons of Las Vegas. She has most recently gained prominence for her roles as Naomi Dorrit in Lost, and Diana Barrigan in FBI: Very Special Duo.
In this third season of The Bay, set to start filming in the spring, Marsha Thomason will play liaison officer Jenn Townsend, who will be plunged into the deep end when the body of a young boxer is found on his first day on the job.
Regarding the rest of the cast, Daniel Ryan, Erin Shanagher, Thomas Law and Andrew Dowbiggin, who respectively play Anthony “Tony” Manning, Karen Hobson, Eddie Martin and James Clarke, will be back for this new round of episodes.
As a reminder, the first season of The Bay followed Lisa Armstrong, a missing person liaison officer in the town of Morecambe. Trained never to become emotionally involved, she must remain attentive to the slightest clue that could help advance the investigation. However, her situation is compromised when she discovers that she is related to two missing twins …
See you in 2022 on France 2 to discover season 3 of The Bay.
