The popularity of Grace's first season was so great that ITV renewed the series for season two after the airing of the first episode.
ITV’s Head of Drama Polly Hill issued a statement saying: “We are delighted to be adapting more of Peter James’ wonderful novels.”
Series writer Russell Lewis (Endeavour) commented on the announcement of season 2, saying:
Team Roy Grace are delighted to have been given the opportunity by ITV to return to Brighton (& Hove, actually!) to continue Roy's story with a new series of films based on Peter James best-selling novels.

Who's Returning for Grace: Season 2?
Grace stars John Simm (Life on Mars, Doctor Who) as detective Roy Grace. He is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his wife, and has a reputation of using unorthodox methods to investigate his cases.
Starring alongside Simm is Richie Campbell (Liar) as Grace's partner, and Rakie Ayola (Noughts + Crosses) as Chief Constable Vosper, and Adrian Rawlins (Harry Potter) as Harry Frame.
Other cast members for Grace season 1 include Laura Elphinstone (Line of Duty) as DS Moy, Alisha Bailey (Save Me) as Ashely, Matt Stokoe (Bodyguard) as Mark, Maggie O’Neill (EastEnders) as Gill, and Tom Weston-Jones (Dickensian) as Michael.
Series leads including Simm, Campbell, Ayola, and Rawlins are expected to return. It's likely the supporting cast for series 2 will be new since they will cover different cases.
