"The story continues with Scarlet, the first female detective of London, attempting to expand her private firm with the help of her childhood friend, professional colleague, and potential love interest Duke," the official statement from PBS read, while former The Crown star Kate teased that season two is set to be "richer and more playful than ever."

"It's like no time has passed at all. We've slipped right back into the same old Duke and Eliza dynamic," she added.

Earlier this year, series creator and writer Rachael New opened up about how Eliza and the Duke's will-they-won't-they-romance will progress in the new season, telling Indie Wire: "I'm a romantic at heart. I'd like to think they're in love with each other… but [Eliza] is not ready to settle down. She'd make a terrible wife!"

The former Grantchester writer has since remained tight-lipped on details, but when season two was commissioned in April, she did hint that the slow burn romance might be speeding up slightly, telling the press in a statement: "I have so much in store for Duke, Eliza and her crew. With even more action, adventure and of course a nice big dollop of romance, it's going to be a cracking season."
