Back in 2013 audiences were gripped by Jane Campion and Gerard Lee's miniseries Top of the Lake, which followed the story of detective Robin Griffin (Elisabeth Moss) as she attempting to locate a missing and pregnant 12-year-old in rural New Zealand.
Four years on and the series is finally set to receive a second season with Top of the Lake: China Girl hitting screens soon. Top of the Lake Season 2 will once again star Elisabeth Moss as Robin Griffin, though it will be an entirely new story, this time set in Sydney, Australia. Campion and Lee have reteamed to write the series, with Campion directing with Ariel Keliman.
