Everything we know about season 2 of Stan Original Series The Tourist

Jamie Dornan has returned for another thrilling season.

The Tourist was one of Stan’s most popular Original Series in 2022 and now it’s been confirmed for a second season.

The six-part thriller, starring Irish heartthrob Jamie Dornan as Elliot and Australia’s very own Danielle McDonald Helen, will begin filming in April and this year, it will be set in Dublin.

What was season one of The Tourist about?

Season one of The Tourist saw Dornan (Belfast) star as Elliot, who finds himself in the glowing red heart of the Australian outback on an epic cat and mouse chase with a vast tank truck.

Elliot wakes in hospital, hurt, alive – and bewildered with no idea who he is. With merciless figures from his past pursuing him, Elliot’s search for answers propels him through the vast and unforgiving landscape of Australia. 

What will season two of The Tourist be about?

A year on from their adventure in the outback, the new series, which is set in Dublin, follows Elliot (who also serves as executive producer) and Macdonald’s Elliot and Helen (Poker Face) travel to Ireland together. 

Deciding that it’s finally time for Elliot to rediscover his roots following the car crash that left him with severe memory loss, the pair find themselves dragged into the dangerous whirlwind of his past life.

Whilst Elliot fights with his own demons, Helen is left to pick up the pieces of a larger mystery; forcing them both to confront foes, old and new.

Harry and Jack Williams are brilliant writers, and I can’t wait for audiences to see how well Ireland and its characters are utilised to keep them guessing as the tale progresses,” he said in a statement.

Meanwhile, McDonald said: “I’m so excited to team up with Jamie again and return for another wild adventure with an amazing cast and crew. Jack and Harry Williams are brilliant story tellers and it’s exciting to see what their minds will come up with next.”
