Return to ‘Top of the Lake’ With Season 2 ‘China Girl’ Photos
We’ll still have to wait until September for Elisabeth Moss’ official Top of the Lake return, but some new China Girl photos pair nicely with that first trailer. Check out new looks at Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie, Nicole Kidman and more!
Even as the new season picks up with Detective Robin Griffin (Moss) in Sydney, it looks like we’ll at least spend some time with familiar characters back in Paradise. And yes, thankfully, Top of the Lake: China Girl will again see Robin drink beer by the water, and get us all ugly-crying with her. Joining the series for China Girl are Girl With the Dragon Tattoo alum David Dencik, Beautiful Creatures star Alice Englert and The Daughter’s Ewen Leslie.
So reads the Season 2 synopsis:
‘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 should come forth with an official September premiere soon, so watch the first trailer below and stay tuned.
