The first season of We Hunt Together followed loved up killers, Baba and Freddy as they who go on the run following a series of violent murders.

Detectives Lola Franks and Jackson Mendy took on the job of tracking down the killer couple and bringing them to justice.

The first season ended with Baba dead and Freddy in the clear for the killings having been made to look like an innocent victim dragged into a world of violence by Baba.

However, the second season will take place ten months after the season one finale and see Lola follow up her suspicions about Freddy’s guilt.

Freddy is looking for a new partner to team up with in her criminal quest as she can’t seem to leave murder behind her.

When people close to Freddy start dying in mysterious circumstances it becomes apparent that someone else is on her tale - and the detectives find themselves with another intriguing case to crack.
