The BAFTA-winning Welsh police drama Bang debuts a second six-episode season today, September 21, on subscription streamer Acorn TV.

Set in the steel town of Port Talbot, South Wales, season two starts with the murder of two young men, both found hanging upside down. Detective Sergeant Gina Jenkins (Catrin Stewart) and her partner (Jack Parry-Jones) soon discover a connection to an incident involving five men charged with raping a woman in a rugby club 10 years earlier. The assailants never went to trial because a key witness disappeared. Are the murders a case of vigilante justice delayed?

Meanwhile, Gina tries to support her brother (Jacob Ifan), who has just been released from prison for a crime spree committed in season one.
