Following the reports in the press over the past couple of days and for all those asking me on here, it’s with a heavy heart I post the #WhiteLines season 2 ship has well and truly sailed. Huge thanks, respect and admiration to @netflix @netflixuk @alexpinaoficial @leftbankpictures and @vancouvermedia_ for the ride of a lifetime. Love to the incredible cast & crew and to all the amazing fans for watching around the globe. Your support for the show meant the world to us. So THANK YOU! 🙌 Farewell Marcus………you were my favourite. 🎧❤️
White Lines follows the story of Zoe Walker (Laura Haddock) as she travels to Ibiza, following a trail of mystery and suspicion surrounding the death of her brother, Axel Collins. Her otherwise orderly life, married with a teenage daughter, is upended as she finds herself in over her head, colliding with figures from her past while finding out a thing or two about herself along the way.
One could argue that White Lines functions as a limited series anyway, because the truth about the night of Axel’s death was revealed by the end of season 1. However, the first season also planted seeds for a continuation of the story, as Marcus and Andreu Calafat seemed to be on the verge of a new business venture. Not to mention, there was a mountain of unfinished business between Zoe and Nuno Lopes’ Boxer. The talented cast, interesting characters, gorgeous scenery and cinematography, and compelling soundtrack were all the perfect recipe for the potential that season 2 had to offer. Alas, it was not meant to be.
