Frequently Asked Questions
Who is The Duke?
The Duke in the title of the show is Detective Inspector William Wellington.
Why is William called The Duke?
William is called The Duke by his colleagues at Scotland Yard. It is a nickname and play on his surname, after the first Duke of Wellington, Arthur Wellesley.
Will there be a season 2?
Yes, it started filming in Belgrade in Serbia in August 2021.
When will season 2 be out?
PBS announced the release for 2022.
Based on the season 1 timeline, we would estimate April/May 2022 as the release date for S2. Last time they started filming in early July 2019, finished early September 2019 and the first episode aired 30 March 2020 in the UK. This time we think they started filming mid-August, so they’re roughly 4-6 weeks behind the season 1 schedule.
Unfortunately we don’t know if the episodes will be released in the UK first (like last time) or if PBS (who are now producing the show) will call dibs. A trailer usually comes out when the release date is announced app. 2-4 weeks prior to it.
How old are Eliza and William?
At the start of Season 1, Eliza is 26 and William is 29. (Source: Rachael New)
