“Writing the second series of Hidden was a great opportunity to visit one of those small towns and examine a complex cultural and socio-economic setting,” said series writer Caryl Lewis. “The three young people ricochet through the storyline and commit what seems to be a senseless act of violence. We stuck with the ‘why done it’ formula again this season in order to spend time with our three characters and drill down into their worlds. Among other things, we touch upon young people’s lack of agency; poverty, neglect, political apathy and abuse, and reflect on the fact that perhaps, in some ways, we all share the blame as a society for the outcomes of these problems.”
The second season was filmed in Welsh and English. Welsh version Craith premiered on Wales’ S4C in November and the English/Welsh version premiered on BBC One Wales and BBC Four in February.
Acorn TV will feature the bilingual version, with English subtitles.
Acorn TV is part of AMC Networks. It costs $5.99 monthly.
