Miss Scarlet and the Duke Season 2 picks up a few months after the end of Season 1 of the show, when Eliza learned the truth about her father’s death. In the new episodes, Eliza (Peaky Blinders alum Kate Phillips) will continue to investigate cases while coping with the challenges of being a female detective in male-dominated Victorian London. Meanwhile, the voluntary or involuntary relationship between Eliza and her childhood friend, Detective Inspector William “The Duke” Wellington (Stuart Martin) also continues to evolve.
“Eliza is still charting her own path as a private detective and as much as she wants [William] in her life, her work is always front and center,” Phillips told PBS of Season 2. “She’s still proving herself to the world and she won’t let anything stop her. Even the Duke.
Season 2 will have six episodes. In the season premiere, the sister of a missing woman hires Eliza to find her brother. But the case had already been investigated – and closed – by the police, leading to further tension between Eliza and William. Subsequent episodes involve the theft of a valuable sketch of Charles Darwin, a series of burglaries at city morgues (of which Eliza becomes the prime suspect), a case of blackmail in the shady world of Victorian medicine, and a series of murders that mimic scenes in the books of a famous crime novelist.
In addition to Phillips and Martin, cast members for season 2 include Ansu Kabia as Moses and Cathy Belton as Eliza’s governess, Ivy.
