Who will be in the cast of Vienna Blood season 2?

The show will see the return of British actor Matthew Beard as Max Liebermann, the protégé of Sigmund Freud.

Joining him will be Austrian star Jürgen Maurer as his detective and Liebermann’s friend Oskar Rheinhardt, who enlists him to help him crack cases.

Further cast members who may return include Josef Ellers as Sergeant Haussman and Jessica De Gouw as Amelia Lydgate.

Viewers are also likely to encounter new cast members with each episode bringing into play a fresh case for the duo to solve.

Sherlock writer Steve Thompson will be working on the new scripts, while Robert Dornhelm will be directing again.

What will happen in Vienna Blood season 2?

Vienna Blood is adapted from the Liebermann Papers novels by Frank Tallis and season two is likely to do the same.

The story is set in the early 20th century in the Austrian city of Vienna.

The novels take place between 1902 and 1914, so the stories will fall in this time period.

Fans can expect to see the pair taking on three new cases using ground-breaking methods as part of their investigations.

Among the novels which may be adapted are Darkness Rising, Deadly Communion and Death and the Maiden.

However, there’s also likely to be ongoing tensions created by the advent of the first and second world wars.

Vienna Blood also sees the rising antisemitism in Austria towards its characters as the war edges ever closer.
