‘Top of the Lake’ Adds Gwendoline Christie, Nicole Kidman in Season 2 Trailer
Were Elisabeth Moss not breaking your heart with enough regularity, Sundance is returning to Top of the Lake for Season 2’s China Girl. The second season delves deep into Detective Robin Griffin’s past, while the first trailer adds Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie, and Nicole Kidman.
Sundance has yet to specify an official premiere date for Top of the Lake: China Girl beyond September 2017, but nonetheless comes forth with a (spoilery!) first trailer. In addition to picking up with a major portion of Robin’s Season 1 arc, the new footage also reveals Robin’s tie to Nicole Kidman’s character, as well as Christie’s role as Robin’s partner.
‘Top of the Lake: China Girl’ is a crime mystery story that finds Detective Robin Griffin recently returned to Sydney and trying to rebuild her life. When the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, there appears little hope of finding the killer, until Robin realizes “China Girl” didn’t die alone. Robin looks to the investigation to restore herself, but her problems are personal. Haunted by a daughter given up at birth, Robin desperately wants to find her, yet dreads revealing the truth of her conception. But her search to discover “China Girl’s” identity will take her into the city’s darkest recesses and closer than she could have imagined to the secrets of her own heart.
Top of the Lake: China Girl will hopefully come forth with an official premiere soon, so stay tuned in the meantime.
