Inside Man, which premiered in September on BBC One and is now streaming on Netflix, is quickly gaining popularity in the United States. The criminal drama by Steven Moffat stars Stanley Tucci as the “Death Row Detective,” a former criminology professor convicted of the horrific murder of his wife.
David Tennant, who plays the Doctor in “Doctor Who,” guest stars as a “dark vicar” that Jefferson Grieff helps solve in the first season. Yet, the case is solved magnificently in only four episodes. Is this the final episode of the hilarious series? Bet against it.
Inside Man has not been officially renewed for a second season by either BBC One or Netflix. So here’s why we’re quite confident we’ll see more of Jefferson Grieff.
Does Steven Moffat Plan To Return For Inside Man Season 2?
Moffat suggested in an interview with Radio Times that a second season of Inside Man could be possible in October 2022. “After four episodes, he remarked, “the story will be over. Wonder if there’s any way to create a prequel, sequel, or spinoff. At this time, I can’t say.”
The creator of the top-rated Sherlock series hinted that the show’s renewal was contingent on how viewers responded and whether or not he could think of a new tale.
“Television is littered with shows that had one season and pretended they could carry on,” Moffat mused. “I would never want to be one of those, where you’re so excited to get a phone call about doing another run that you do it and then realise the story is finished.”
Has Season 2 Story Development Begun On Inside Man?
In a word, yes. Those who stayed for the closing episode’s credits got a sneak peek at what could be the following case for the Death Row Detective.
An unexpected encounter occurs in this scene. The prison’s math tutor turned near-murder victim, Janice Fife (Dolly Wells), is seated in Grieff’s improvised office. She has hardly healed from the hammer strikes to her head, implying that she has not been free of the Watling family for long.
Grieff and his sidekick Dillon (Atkins Estimond) walk in as the theme music, “God’s Gonna Cut You Down,” plays; they sit down and assume a patient expression while chained to the table. Even though the Death Row Detective is responsible for Janice’s survival, she is unwilling to show her gratitude. As a result, you have a case, Grieff replies with a wry grin. You do realise that I’m in a hurry, right?
The state has planned his execution for next week. As a terrible form of revenge, Janice requests his assistance in killing her husband at this period. In other words, who better to seek advice from than a man who brutally murdered his wife? Maybe someone who escaped detection.
In response to her observation that he doesn’t appear shocked by her request, Grieff shrugs. “Janice, you are now on Death Row. A killer exists in every person. What can I do to assist you?”
What To Expect From Inside Man Season 2?
Season one of Inside Man ends with a scene in which Janice (Dolly Wells) visits Grieff in jail to offer him a case after the credits roll. In stark contrast to the initial fascination generated by the mystery of Janice’s disappearance, Janice now proposes something entirely different: she wants help for a crime that hasn’t yet happened, disclosing that she’d need Grieff’s assistance in the murder of her husband, who is still alive.
There’s potential for a new set of episodes based on the implication that he faked his death and wronged Janice.

Less potential exists for further development in Watling’s plot section, although Tennant might still make a cameo appearance, given the current state of affairs. Watling gets locked up towards the end of the first season of Inside Man.
Grieff hints that he might explain why he killed his wife in the future and mentions a link he and Watling share. There’s no denying the shared gloom that binds Inside Man’s three main protagonists, Janice, Watling, and Grieff. It can deepen the tension and darkness of a forthcoming second season.
The reviews for Inside Man were all over the place. Critics applauded the show’s superb ensemble, but many also pointed out the show’s logical flaws and puzzling character decisions. Moffat’s comments about the show’s ratings suggest, however, that the drama was a hit with lurid crime enthusiasts, which is good news for those anticipating a second season.
