With the new series airing tonight, here's everything you need to know about Season 2 of Noughts + Crosses.

What is season 2 of Noughts + Crosses about?

Following up from last season, Sephy and Callum are both still alive but on the run. Given that both Sephy and Callum's brother Jude are still grieving over Callum's death in Knife Edge, it's difficult to see how the BBC could bring a realistic adaptation of the book to the screen with Callum still present.

The first four episodes of the new season is directed by Koby Adom, who directed three episodes of the first season. He also directed two episodes of the most recent season of Top Boy.

Who's in the cast?

  • Masali Baduza as Persephone "Sephy" Hadley
  • Jack Rowan as Callum McGregor
