‘Top of the Lake’ Season 2 Sets Three-Night ‘China Girl’ Premiere
Elisabeth Moss’ Top of the Lake will look very different in Season 2, and so will China Girl’s release strategy. SundanceTV will air the entire season over three nights this coming September.
As announced ahead of Sundance’s TCA press presentation, the network revealed that Top of the Lake: China Girl will air as a three-night special event starting Sunday, September 10 at 9:00 P.M., and continuing Monday, September 11 and Tuesday, September 12. Each night will premiere two new episodes, with encore presentations afterward.
In addition to Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie and Nicole Kidman, joining 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.
