Although it was first planned as mini-series, SundanceTV and the BBC renewed the Top of the Lake TV show for a second season, and production kicked off back in January of 2016. Can SundanceTV’s “three night event” woo back the American audience after a four year hiatus? Will Top of the Lake be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.
A mystery crime drama, the Top of the Lake TV series stars Elizabeth Moss as Detective Robin Griffin. In “China Girl” — the second season — the SundanceTV cast also includes Kip Chapman, Jacqueline Joe, Ewen Leslie, Clayton Jacobson, Nicole Kidman, Gwendoline Christie, Alice Englert, David Dencik, Anjee Douangphoumy, Elaine Crombie, Merlynn Tong, Lincoln Vickery, Byron Coll, Ling Cooper Tang, and Ben Wood.
Top of the Lake: “Little China Girl,” is set in Sydney Australia, four years after the events of the first season. When an unidentified Asian girl’s corpse washes up on Bondi Beach, Griffin partners with Sydney Police Constable Miranda Hilmarson (Christie), on the investigation. Although the case seems impossible at first, Griffin gets a break when she realizes someone was with “China Girl,” when she perished.
