Grace is back for a second season and the latest episode has left viewers stunned. The very popular ITV series aired its graphic content in front of the watershed and fans took to social media to share their reactions.
Grace is based on the bestselling books by author Peter James.
Season one was a huge hit for ITV, so it’s no surprise that the channel has taken the lead with its second season just coming out online.
Airing on Sunday, April 24, viewers watch another episode of the thrilling detective drama.
However, many got more than they bargained for, with audiences taking to social media to complain about graphic sexual and violent content within minutes of its broadcast.
The show is still widely loved and here’s everything you need to know about season two.
Why is there such a backlash against Grace?
The second episode of season two featured sexually violent and offensive images within 15 minutes of its broadcast.
Starting at 8pm, which is an hour before the watershed, yielded more profit than they bargained for.
It shows a man hanging while wearing a fetish.
It certainly captured the audience’s attention from the start, but not quite the intention of the presenters.
One Twitter user wrote: “8pm and they showed a hanging man, I always thought such things were shown after 9pm? #Grace @ITV. ”
Another tweeted: “The man hanging from the beam in an ag**p outfit is a far cry from Last of the Summer Wine on a Sunday night in front of the watershed…”
What is Grace?
Thank goodness season two starts directly from where the first chapter left off.
The famed detective is still grieving his wife’s death while his career remains on the knife edge, even though he’s a dedicated and dedicated cop.
However, he frequently clashed with his boss, something that pushed him further and further away from the, um, considerateness of his fellow officers.
Thank god how many episodes?
Season one has only two episodes, though both are feature lengths.
Season two is similar, with only three episodes to compete with.
The third season will air on Sunday, May 1, and will conclude the new season.
Titled Deadly Tomorrow, the plot begins when a body is found on the seabed of the English Channel.
