The Victims’ Game season 2 Netflix release date: Will there be another series?

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

The Victims’ Game made its debut on Netflix in April 2020 and the Netflix Original is a Taiwanese series. The debut series revolves around a forensic scientist called Fang Yi-jen (played by Joseph Chang) who has Asperger’s syndrome. Fans were hooked after watching the eight episodes and they are keen to know whether a second season is on the cards.

Will there be another series of The Victims’ Game?

There could potentially be a second series of The Victims’ Game, as there were a few unanswered questions at the end of the first series.

Fans are keen to find out more about the relationship between Fang Yi-Jen and investigative journalist Hsu Hai-yin (Ann Hsu).

As this is a case-solving series, there is plenty of scope for new cases to act as new material for a second season.

Netflix is yet to reveal whether a second series has been given the green light, and the streaming platform will likely make a decision in the coming weeks.

If the series does get the go-ahead, a second season could be released sometime in 2022, as the coronavirus outbreak has halted TV and film production.

Who will be in the cast of The Victims’ Game season 2?

Joseph Chang and Ann Hsu are likely to reprise their roles as the two main characters, and fans can expect plenty more adventures from them.

Other cast members likely to return include Jason Wang as Chao Cheng-Kuan, Ruby Lin as Li Ya-Jun and River Huang as Yu Cheng-Hao.

Joseph Chang is a Taiwanese actor who is best known for his role in the film Eternal Summer for which he received two Golden Horse Awards nominations.

He was also nominated for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film at the Golden Bell Awards for his role in Corner of Auction World.

Ann Hsu is also known as Tiffany Ann Hsu, and she is a Taiwanese actress and model. She was also nominated for a Golden Horse Award and won a Golden Bell Award for Best Supporting Actress in The Way We Were.

Is there a trailer for The Victims’ Game season 2?

As a new season is yet to be announced there is sadly no trailer for season two at this moment in time.

Netflix usually drops trailers a month before the show is due to start, so fans will not be able to see a trailer for another year or two.

In the meantime fans can watch the trailer for the first series, which shows a gory murder scene the scientist is investigating.

His colleagues consider him to be “weird” but they later find out about his Asperger’s Syndrome and respect his dedication to his work.

The official synopsis for the series says: “After discovering his estranged daughter’s link to mysterious murders, a forensic detective with Asperger’s syndrome risks everything to solve the case.”

What will happen in The Victims’ Game season 2?

The first series saw the forensic detective question what he would do if he found out his daughter was a murderer.

His daughter’s involvement in the string of murders sends him into a state of shock and he tries to get to the bottom of the case.

At the end of the series he steps down as forensic detective and takes on a new role as forensic professor.

A second series may look at Fang Yi-Jen in his new role, and it may also delve more into the rekindled relationship between Fang Yi-Jen and his daughter Jiang Xiao-Meng (Moon Lee).

Fans have already taken to Twitter to show their love for the new series, with one fan saying: “I’m awake because I’ve been watching The Victims’ Game on Netflix and it’s so good. Someone please watch it so I have someone to discuss it with.”

Fans who have reviewed the series are encouraging others to stream it, with 85 per cent of viewers on Decider.com picking ‘stream’ over ‘skip’.

The website said: “The Victims’ Game is a well-done police thriller that tries to be as faithful to police and forensic investigations as possible”.

Ready Steady Cut said the series deserved praise due to the believable bond between the two main characters.

They said: “Opposites always tend to attract in such stories, and of course, these two represent each other’s best chances of both saving the day and unpacking their own personal neuroses.”

“I saw him walking down to his room. My vision of him is the back of his head almost at the door,” Terri told PEOPLE in an exclusive interview in 2016. “That’s what I see when I sit here and think about him – that’s my last thought.”

Terri Horman quickly became the focus of the investigation. Terri, who has remarried and now lives in an undisclosed location, has never been named a suspect or a person of interest in the case surrounding Kyron’s disappearance, which officials for the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Department say is an “ongoing investigation.”

At the time, Kyron's disappearance prompted a massive search by 60 trained searchers and additional volunteers. Another 65 detectives from agencies throughout the region were brought in, along with the FBI.

“Kyron, we’re going to bring you home, buddy,” an emotional sheriff’s Capt. Jason Gates said a press conference in 2010. “Nothing is more important to your family and friends.”

Martin said: “[It] isn’t too bad, I’m getting lots of jobs done, the garden has never looked better, mending bits of fences and gates and things.”

“But the uncertainty isn’t very nice at all.”

He later also spoke about his decision to move outside of London.

Martin explained: “It was very incremental our move to the country, we bought a place six miles away where we used to go for weekends, and then Emily was born and we thought it best that her schooling should happen down here or we’d never get down here.

“That sort of changed everything and then we bought the farm and got rid of the place in London and that there was ‘no more Nannies we’re down here for good and not just visitors’, and it’s been 12/14 years now.”

Martin and wife Philippa Braithwaite have been married more than 20 years.

Before his marriage with Philippa, he was previously married to actress Lucy Aston.

The couple were married for seven years before divorcing in 1997. Later that year Martin went on to marry Philippa.

While talking to Ruth and Eamonn on This Morning, Martin revealed Emily wants to pursue an equestrian career.

Young Sheldon: Is Laurie Metcalf in Young Sheldon? Who is the mother of young Sheldon?

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Young Sheldon is now in its third season on CBS and ALL4 and fans are waiting for season 4 to start. The series follows a young Sheldon Cooper (played by Iain Armitage) who grows up to eventually become a talented scientist in Big Bang Theory. Fans are wondering whether Laurie Metcalf features in Young Sheldon, as she took on an important role in Big Bang Theory.

Is Laurie Metcalf in Young Sheldon?

Laurie Metcalf is an American actress who has won a number of Emmy and Tony Awards across her long career.

The 64-year-old actress featured in The Big Bang Theory series between 2007 and 2018, playing the role of Mary Cooper – Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) mother.

She had a recurring role in the series, featuring in a total of 14 episodes, with her first appearance being in The Luminous Fish Effect.

Although the actress may have appeared in the pilot of Young Sheldon, the younger version of Mary Cooper is played by a different actress.

  • Young Sheldon season 4: Will Iain Armitage carry on as Young Sheldon?

Who plays Sheldon’s mother?

Fans may be interested to hear the actress who plays the younger Mary Cooper – Zoe Perry – is actually the real-life daughter of Metcalf.

Metcalf was nominated for an Emmy Award for her role as Mary in Big Bang Theory, so it was a big pair of shoes for her daughter to fill in Young Sheldon.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Perry revealed what it was like auditioning to play the same role her mother played.

She said her mum had persuaded her to try out for the role and she described it as a “surreal” turn of events.

Perry said: “I know the casting directors and they were aware of the parental connection, and [Young Sheldon co-creators] Chuck Lorre and Steve Molaro were as well.

“Chuck was aware that I had become an actor but not of anything I’d done. I went in knowing that I had this odd connection on my side.

“Odd meaning that I am my mother’s daughter and there was a character already established by her.

I knew I had to prove to them that [casting me] would be a good idea and showcase what they were envisioning in this character in a different stage of life.”

As Young Sheldon is a prequel to the parent series, Metcalf stepped back from her original role to let her daughter take over.

All the characters in the series are younger versions of the same characters in The Big Bang Theory – including Sheldon’s dad George (Lance Barber), brother Georgie (Montana Jordan) and sister Missy (Raegan Revord).

Perry said she had been inspired by her mum Metcalf to pursue an acting career, with Metcalf gaining attention across America for her role in the ABC sitcom Roseanne between 1988 and 1997.

Metcalf was awarded a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre degree in 1976 and this is where she met her first husband, Jeff Perry.

The actress has a long list of theatre, film and TV credits including Desperately Seeking Susan, Toy Story, The Conners and Desperate Housewives.

Speaking to WRBL News Perry spoke about whether her character in Young Sheldon was the same as Mary Cooper in Big Bang Theory.

She said: “I definitely have something going for me in the genetics department, where I don’t have to work too hard at the voice or the mannerisms.

“But in terms of inhabiting this Mary Cooper at this age, there is a freedom there because we are being introduced to her at a different stage of life.

“She’s not necessarily the same person with the same colours as she is when you are introduced to her later in The Big Bang Theory. It’s fun to see her at a different stage.”

Fans were shocked when they found out Metcalf and Perry were related, and many have praised both performances.

Metcalf was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in 2016 for Outstanding Guest Actress in Big Bang Theory, and the previous year she was nominated for a Critics’ Choice Television Award for the same category.

Although she did not win either award, fans have said it was a shame she did not reprise the role in Young Sheldon as she played it so well.

By the time Metcalf joined Big Bang Theory as an older Mary Cooper, she had become a widow as her husband George Sr, Sheldon’s dad, had died.

By this point she is also a grandmother to Missy’s son, who is unnamed in The Big Bang Theory series.

She is a caring and kind-natured mother who only wants the best for her children, and she sometimes worries Sheldon’s intelligence will lead him into trouble.

This is very weird Louise.

“Shall we start with swimming? Just take us back a little bit because you’ve been learning to swim, haven’t you?”

The journalist responded by explaining: “So I was a rubbish swimmer at school.

“I hated it. For so many reasons, I hated it. I hate the cold, so I hate getting into a cold bath. Why would you do that?” Naga announced.

“It’s dirty, in my hair. Skin flakes, people pee in pools, why do I want to get into a pool?”

Emily Maitlis salary: How much does Emily Maitlis earn at BBC?

Emily Maitlis is the presenter of BBC Newsnight and a renowned journalist who last year sat down with Prince Andrew at Buckingham Palace to question him about his connection to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. More recently, Emily sparked debate on Wednesday this week after opening her Newsnight show on Tuesday by saying “the country can see” government adviser Cummings had “broken the rules”. She was absent from her role as presenter after the BBC ruled the programme had breached impartiality rules over its Dominic Cummings row.

Who is Emily Maitlis?

Emily Maitlis, 49, is a Canadian-born British journalist, documentary filmmaker and newsreader working for the BBC.

She is best known for presenting BBC’s Newsnight programme and bulletins on BBC One, BBC News Channel and BBC World. She has also presented BBC Breakfast.

She proposed to him while on holiday in Mauritius in 2000, and the couple now have two children.

How much does Emily Maitlis earn?

The BBC publishes the salaries of its presenters and broadcasters earning more than £150,000 each year.

The corporation’s Annual Report report for 2018 to 2019 was published in July 2019.

The report revealed the biggest BBC earner is Match of the Day’s Gary Linekar with a salary of £1.75m.

Ms Maitlis is the 27th highest earner of those in the latest BBC pay report.

According to the report, Ms Maitlis earns between £260,000 and £264,999 each year.

This figure rose from the 2017 to 2018 figure when she earned £220,000 to £229,999.

The Newsnight presenter was said to be furious upon discovering her co-host Evan Davis got up to £299,999 a year in 2017, when she did not appear on the list meaning she was paid less than £150,000 a year.

In the 2018/2019 report, Mr Davis was paid £275,000 to £279,999 a year, compared to £250,000 to £259,000 in 2017/2018.

  • BBC admits Emily Maitlis’s Cummings rant on Newsnight broke rules

Why was Emily Maitlis absent on Newsnight?

Ms Maitlis introduced Newsnight on Tuesday saying the Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s chief aide had “broken the rules”.

She added: “The country can see that and it’s shocked the Government cannot”.

On Tuesday she said: “The longer ministers and the prime minister tell us he worked within [the rules], the more angry the response to this scandal is likely to be.

“He was the man, remember, who always got the public mood, who tagged the lazy label of elite on those who disagreed.

“He should understand that public mood now – one of fury, contempt and anguish.”

The BBC said the news programme on Tuesday did not meet the required standards of due impartiality.

The media company said it should have made clear the remarks were “a summary of the questions we would examine” about Mr Cummings.

In a statement on Wednesday, the BBC said it had “reviewed the entirety of last night’s Newsnight, including the opening section”.

The statement read: “While we believe the programme contained fair, reasonable and rigorous journalism, we feel that we should have done more to make clear the introduction was a summary of the questions we would examine, with all the accompanying evidence, in the rest of the programme.

“As it was, we believe the introduction we broadcast did not meet our standards of due impartiality.”

The presenter had been scheduled to appear on the programme on Wednesday but instead, Newsnight’s UK editor Katie Razzall presented the programme.

Ms Razzall confirmed Ms Maitlis had not be asked to take the night off and said she “certainly wouldn’t have agreed to present the show” if she thought that was the case.

She did not address the Dominic Cummings row throughout the show.

Ms Maitlis tweeted: “So grateful to my friend and excellent colleague for stepping in this evening.

“She did so because I asked for the night off -knowing tonight’s prog would be in the most excellent hands.”

Boris Johnson’s sister admits she’s ‘worried’ for PM after Dominic Cummings crisis

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

At the weekend, it was reported Dominic Cummings had driven 260 miles from London to County Durham with his wife and child to his parents house as he feared he wouldn’t be able to care for his child due to Covid-19. There have been calls for the Prime Minister’s aide to step down or be sacked for breaching lockdown rules however both Mr Cummings and Mr Johnson have confirmed he will remain in government. Speaking on Good Morning Britain today, Boris’s sister Rachel revealed she is “worried” about him as he makes huge decisions.

When asked how her brother was coping running the country during the pandemic, Rachel remarked: “I know you are probably going to ask about Dominic Cummings.

“I think this is why it has been problematic because he’s been the architect of so many of the winning messages, the Vote Leave campaign, for the Tory party in 2019, and therefore his approach to this has now been seen as in some way hypocritical.

“You know, he’s been a real rule maker not a rule taker, which is essentially very problematic.

“Obviously, everything is bigger than Dominic Cummings, the pandemic is bigger than Dominic Cummings.

“As my brother said, nobody has his unconditional support.

“I mean, I think if I had been Cummings I would have admitted I had messed up and I’d have got on the front foot and said ‘I apologise to all of those who followed my messages.

“I took bad decisions at the time and I understand how angry it has made a whole country feel and please let’s move on because we have bigger fish to fry.’”

“Do you worry about how it’s damaged your brother because we look at the poll ratings, his approval ratings have gone down as a consequence,” asked Charlotte.

“The party’s, the government’s approval ratings have gone down as a consequence and it potentially has damaged that public health message with people saying, ‘Well, if someone at the top can flout, or be seen to flout the rules like that, then there is more leeway for the rest of us.’”

Rachel replied: “I think any family member worries about somebody under pressure taking so many big decisions.

“Equally I would be worried about Theresa May under being such huge pressure if she was running this crisis.

“I think this is a novel coronavirus, this is an unprecedented crisis, I think everyone is worried.”

“What would you say to people who suggest there has been Labour MPs who have done similar things. Stephen Kinnock, of course, we know he travelled a long way to see his parents right at the start of this.”

The Labour MP replied: “I think that’s right. There can’t be one rule for one political party, one set of advisors, one rule for everybody else.

Normal People’s Paul Mescal delivers devastating blow to fans: ‘Not on the cards’

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Normal People made its series debut on BBC iPlayer back in April and it’s been successful to say the least. Based in Ireland, on the novel by Sally Rooney, it stars Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones as Connell Waldron and Marianne Sheridan and their turbulent relationship through their school years and into adulthood.

It’s not on the cards at the moment, but if I got the opportunity to play him again, amazing

Paul Mescal

With the first series being so popular, fans are waiting eagerly to hear whether there will be a season two, but it doesn’t look likely at the moment.

Even Paul confessed the ending left many “unanswered” questions between the two characters, but the fact there was never a second novel written could beg the question whether Rooney intended to end on a cliff-hanger.

Speaking to Wonderland Magazine, the actor revealed he would be keen to pick up where they left off if a series two was commissioned.

“Oh, there’s no question that character to me is still alive and breathing and very much has a lot of life left to live, and has a relationship with Marianne that is maybe unfinished.

  • Normal People: How did stars feel about feel about first sex scene?

“I do feel like the series that has finished is its own thing, and I’m totally comfortable with that.

“It’s not on the cards at the moment, but if I got the opportunity to play him again, amazing.”

The series didn’t end on a happy note, with Connell looking to study in New York whereas Marianne had other ideas for her future, crushing fans who wanted to see them live happily ever after.

“I thought it was just the most beautifully sad ending to a story,” the 24-year-old admitted.

“Totally, the romantic in me is like why doesn’t she just tell him to stay? Or why doesn’t she come over to New York?

“But it doesn’t make sense in the reality of those two characters’ lives. I think ultimately if they did decide to stay together at that moment, it would be way more disappointing than the reality of the ending.”

Regardless of the ending or whether there will be a second series, the TV adaptation has certainly been a lockdown smash hit.

However, due to its release during the coronavirus lockdown period, the stars have had a difficult time dealing with the fame as they are confined to their houses.

He said: “I feel the success of the show when I pick my phone up, but when I put my phone down, nothing has changed from before or after the release.”

But when he does venture outside for shopping, he revealed he was embarrassed after being approached by fans.

Michelle Visage: Who’s in How’s Your Head Hun? Star warns ‘we are not the Kardashians’

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Michelle Visage might be best known for Strictly Come Dancing and RuPaul’s Drag Race but now the star is inviting viewers into her home. The new show How’s Your Head Hun? follows Visage and her family as they deal with lockdown in their Los Angeles house.

How’s Your Head Hun? is a new eight-part series from Michelle Visage and BBC Three.

The fly-on-the-wall show follows the Drag Race judge as she attempts to learn some new skills as well as catching up with some old friends virtually.

However, at the heart of the series is Visage’s family as viewers follow them dealing with lockdown in their own way.

Behind the camera is Visage’s husband David Case while the show also features one of her daughters, 18-year-old Lola and her new boyfriend Dylan.

  • How’s Your Head, Hun? : When is Michelle Visage’s new series out?

And according to Visage, they were all quite excited about the prospect of the new series when she told them about it.

She told Express.co.uk recently: “I had to tell them – obviously I couldn’t just be, ‘Surprise, the cameras are here.’

“But when I pitched it to them, I said, ‘How do you guys feel about it?’ They were all down for it, they were all really into it.

“I said, ‘I hope you know what this means you’re gonna have to do X, Y and Z and be open to things being out there’, and I was mostly worried about my daughter and not my husband.

“He’s gonna do what I say anyway. But for my daughter and her boyfriend, they were surprisingly okay with it.

“I think the idea of doing something while we’re in quarantine is exciting because a lot of people are struggling to find what to do with their time.”

As Visage mentioned, alongside them they also have their daughter’s new boyfriend quarantining with them, which has added a unique dynamic in the house.

The pair had been dating for just three months before the lockdown order came in, which the star revealed left them making a quick decision.

But the pair have been adjusting well to the cameras as Lola finishes her final year at school despite not being able to have a graduation.

Visage also revealed how her husband has been dedicating himself to the new show, taking charge of all of the filming.

She added: “My husband is the cameraman. He’s the sound man. He’s the lighting man.

However, above all, she hopes the new series will show how normal they all are and how they are dealing with lockdown just like anyone else.

Visage added: “We’ve got a house that’s not the cleanest, so I’m trying to tidy that up because we are not the Kardashians but I’m trying to be in my best way!

“Because we don’t have a guest house or pool or anything like to run to so trying to get our own space and time is kind of funny – it’s like if I get upset I’m going to the loo!

“We’re still doing it, you know, and we’re basically just like everybody else. And I think that’s the allure.”

Tipping Point: Ben Shephard left speechless by player’s revelation on ITV quiz show

Ben, 45, was on hand to oversee proceedings on this afternoon’s instalment of Tipping Point, welcoming four players to the ITV quiz show. Each one was hoping to walk away with the jackpot prize of £10,000 but they would have to fend off their other competitors first. It was in the final round, one lucky contestant made their play for the huge windfall, but left the host speechless when they made a revelation which might have cost them the game.

After Hilary and Laura failed to progress past the first stages of the show, it was Dan and Chris who went head-to-head to try and win the jackpot.

Although the former had been the one to beat throughout the course of the game, the latter ended up making it into the final round with just an extra £50 ahead.

As well as trying to secure the £10,000, the contestant was also aiming to increase the prize fund he had already built.

However, it was one question about one of the most iconic television shows of modern times which left him stumped and Ben lost for words.

  • Tipping Point fans enraged after Ben Shephard’s question ‘error’

With just two categories left, Chris asked if he could play for three counters on TV shows, meaning the question was going to be tough.

Ben then asked: “Which of the three daughters of the Earl of Grantham on Downton Abbey was played by Jessica Brown Findlay?”

The three possible answers the contestant could choose from were Lady Sybil, Lady Mary or Lady Edith.

Instead of giving an answer, however, the player told the host: “I’ve never watched an episode of Downton Abbey.”

It’s going to be a pure guess

This revelation left Ben utterly speechless as he was seen putting his hand to his mouth in shock.

“It’s going to be a pure guess,” Chris added as the host tried to get over what he’d just been told.

The player locked down the answer of Lady Sybil and when asked if he was sure, he replied: “We’ll be here all night, Ben.”

Luckily, the guess was correct as the studio lit up green and the contestant had another three counters to play with.

Unfortunately, the last category of history didn’t provide any hope as the counters didn’t push the star coin over the edge of the machine.

Ben then asked the player if he wanted to play three more counters and risk losing everything, or walk away with the money he’d already won.

Chris decided to go with the latter option, believing the extra coins wouldn’t have worked in his favour.

This meant he walked away with a cash total of £3,400 and he also won a mystery prize counter as an added bonus.

One viewer wrote on the social media platform: “Well done Chris #TippingPoint.

Another added on the micro-blogging site: “Tough show that today. Well played tho #TippingPoint.” [sic].
