FIRST LOOK: Jamie Dornan stars in new BBC drama

He's back!


Jamie Dornan’s highly anticipated return to TV is finally happening.

The Fifty Shades star is returning to the BBC for a new period drama called Death and Nightingales.

The broadcaster has released the first images from the show, which also stars Matthew Rhys and Red Rock star Ann Skelly.

The three-part drama is based on Eugene McCable’s modern Irish classic. It will air later this year on BBC Two, and is written by The Fall creator Allan Cubitt.

Jamie and his co-stars shot the series in Northern Ireland over the summer.

Death And Nightingales is set in the haunting countryside of Fermanagh in 1885. “It’s a world of spies, confessions and double dealings where neighbors observe each other and inform,” according to Deadline.
