Recap and stream season one of Guilt.

You may have thought you were done with Jake and Max McCall and their troubled ethics, but their story will continue in a second season of Guilt that wrapped filming earlier this year. While we don't yet know when it will be coming to PBS and WTTW, we do know a bit about it, mainly from a trailer that the BBC has released.

It seems like the new season will focus on Max (Mark Bonnar) and his attempt at redemption. "You're still falling, Max," the disgraced lawyer is told. "You've yet to land." Even though we don't see him, Jamie Sives is due to return as Jake, while there will also be some new faces: Phyllis Logan (Downton Abbey's Mrs. Hughes), Sara Vickers (Joan Thursday in Endeavour), and Stuart Bowman, who will apparently replace season one's Bill Paterson as mob boss Roy Lynch. Bowman will also appear in the upcoming sixth season of Grantchester, which premieres Sunday, October 3 at 8:00 pm on WTTW.

Has guilt finally made inroads on Max? Is he ready to change his ways? We'll find out.
