Read on for everything we know about “The Larkins” (Season 2).
Filming in the summer of 2022 within the idyllic and beautiful Kent countryside, this 1950s-set television adaption of H.E. Bates’ iconic novels will see Bradley Walsh and BAFTA award winner Joanna Scanlan return as the much-loved Pop & Ma Larkin.
The new series sees the arrival of a new Reverend in the village and, in stark contrast to the old Vicar, he set hearts a flutter, including Primrose Larkin’s (Lydia Page).
Primrose, now finished with school, is intent on taking the journalistic world by storm, but could it be love with the handsome Reverend Candy (Maxim Ays, Sanditon)?
Meanwhile, following the excitement of Mariette (Joelle Ray) and Charley’s (Tok Stephen) wedding, the local gossip quickly turns to the other new arrivals in the Village. (Season 2 sees a cast change for leading lady Mariette, who was played by Sabrina Bartlett in the first season.)
A new out-of-town family, the Jerebohms (Morgana Robinson and Julian Rhind Tutt, with Hector Batemen Harden and Lucy Allix as their children) have no sooner made their introductions than they are at war with Ma and Pop, with devastating consequences for the Larkin clan.
Across the pond, the six-episode second season is set to air this October 2022 on ITV. In the US, Season 1 of “The Larkins” is streaming on Acorn TV. Stay tuned for the Season 2 US premiere date, and the trailer.
Also returning for the new series are Peter Davison (the Vicar), Kriss Dosanjh (Brigadier), Amelia Bullmore (Miss Edith Pilchester), Seeta Indrani (Miss Chand), Robert Bathurst (Johnny Delamere), Francesca Wilson Waterworth (Libby Fothergill), Barney Walsh (PC Harness), Tony Gardner (Alec Norman), Natalie Mitson (Pauline) and Selina Griffiths (Norma Norman).
Completing the Larkin family on screen will be Liam Middleton (Montgomery Larkin), Lola Shepelev (Victoria Larkin), Summer Miller (Zinnia Larkin) and Sienna Miller (Petunia Larkin).
