Time series 2 preview
BBC prison drama Time, rightfully, won critical acclaim and a slew of awards when the first series aired back in 2021. Starring a Bafta-winning Sean Bean and the always brilliant Stephen Graham as inmate and guard respectively, it was the kind of hard-hitting, gut-wrenching drama that the Beeb has always done best.
So it was only a matter of… well, time, before it returned for a second run. New storyline, new cast, new location; Time series 2 moves to a women’s prison and stars Jodie Whittaker (most famous globally for her run as Doctor Who) and Bella Ramsey fresh from her star-making success in zombie game adaptation The Last of Us.
The drama starts with Whittaker’s Orla O’Riordanin, Ramsey’s Kelsey Morgan and Abi Cochrane (played by Tamara Lawrance) all incarcerated on the same day and placed in a cell together. For Orla – a single mum of three – and drug addict Kelsey, it’s a terrifying introduction into a world they’d never imagined they’d had to suffer. They and ‘tough lifer’ Abi are forced to make bonds simply to survive, with the spectre of violence never far away.
Played out over three hour-long episodes, Time also sees Siobhan Finneran (Happy Valley) reprise her role from the first series as prison chaplain Marie-Louise. And with writer Jimmy McGovern (Cracker, The Lakes, The Street) back at the helm, you can expect an absorbing mix of tension, pathos and the human condition played out on screen.
At the time of writing, no international dates for watching Time season 2 have been announced. Below we detail where the first season is available in various international regions, and all the information you need for how to watch Time series 2 online in the UK and if you’re overseas when it’s on.

If you’re keen to watch Time online on BBC iPlayer but are off on holiday or abroad for business, you’ll find that you’re stopped from doing so as the service is geo-restricted to the UK.
Luckily, getting the best VPN – short for virtual private network – offers a simple solution. It alters your IP address to make it appear like you’re somewhere else. While this can be used for privacy, it can also be used to access your preferred streaming platform back home, even when you’re out of the country.
