Season 2

Prisoners' Wives is a British television drama series created and written by Julie Gearey, produced by Tiger Aspect and set in Sheffield, South Yorkshire which revolves around four very different women, each struggling to cope with a significant man in her life serving time in prison.

The series premiered in the UK on BBC One on 31 January, 2012.

Prisoners' Wives premiered in South Africa on DStv's Sony Entertainment Television (SONY) channel on Monday 15 October 2012, at 20h30. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 2 premiered on SONY on Tuesday 23 April 2013, at 20h00. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are four episodes in the second season.

Season 2

In the first season viewers were kept on the edge of their seats by writer Julie Gearey's gripping storylines. Every week the action-packed episodes drew the audience closer to each of the four women, Francesca, Harriet, Gemma and Lou and their unfurling stories.

In Season 2 viewers can look forward to the return of glamorous gangster's wife Francesca (Polly Walker) and long-suffering prisoner's Mum, Harriet (Pippa Haywood).

This time they are joined by two new characters: Kim (Sally Carman), a mother and the wife of a man falsely accused of a terrible crime and Aisling (Karla Crome), the gutsy teenage daughter of a repeat offender.

As each of the women struggles with the fall-out from their loved ones' imprisonment, viewers can expect even more crime and jeopardy, joy and laughter, sex and secrets.

Over four episodes viewers will enjoy an even more intense, high octane mix of thriller, romance, tension and wit.

This season Francesca is forced to confront the ugly reality of her husband's world. As the line blurs between criminal and criminal's wife, she and her family have to face devastating consequences.

Along with Harriet, Kim and Aisling's stories, Prisoners' Wives builds to an exhilarating finale.

Other well known faces to return include Iain Glen (Downton Abbey, Game Of Thrones) who plays Francesca's gangster husband Paul and David Bradley (Harry Potter, Mount Pleasant) who reprises his role as Frank, Francesca's father.

Adam Gillen (Benidorm, Fresh Meat) returns as Harriet's son Gavin and one of the UK's best loved and most popular actresses Anne Reid (Cemetery Junction, Upstairs, Downstairs) also joins the cast this season.

The series is executive produced for BBC One by Christopher Aird and for Tiger Aspect by Roanna Benn and Rebecca de Souza. Anna Ferguson is series producer. Prisoners' Wives is directed by Harry Bradbeer.
