The Fall will reportedly shoot six new episodes in Belfast from late February.
An early 2014 start date for the second series shoot was first confirmed in October last year.
Series two of the crime drama - starring Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan - will run one episode longer than the five-part first series, claims the Belfast Telegraph.
The Fall actors Bronagh Waugh, Gerard McCarthy, Niamh McGrady, Archie Panjabi and Emmett Scanlan are all expected to return for series two.
"Without giving anything away, [series two] sounds fantastic," Scanlan told Digital Spy. “There’s a high expectation now after the huge success of the first season, but I’m sure it’s one that everyone is relishing.”
Digital Spy highlights the best returning shows for the New Year including The Fall and In The Flesh.
As the end of the year approaches many of the major media and entertainment sites are counting down the best TV shows of 2013.
The first series of The Fall, in which Emmett appeared as DC Glen Martin, has featured at #9 in The Guardian’s Top 30 TV Shows of 2013 and made #18 in Digital Spy’s Top 25 run down. With the second series filming in Belfast in 2014 we look forward to it and hopefully seeing more of Emmett as Glen.
In The Flesh’s first series rated highly on Digital Spy as #11 on their list and with a longer series beginning next year and Emmett playing undead discipline Simon you can just tell it’s going to be even better.
2014 is going to be a great year on TV for us Emmett fans.
