Frequently Asked Questions
Will there be The Frankenstein Chronicles season 3?
There’s no news yet of the third season of The Frankenstein Chronicles. The series first aired in November 2015 in the UK on ITV’s Encore channel, then was renewed less than a year later and saw its second season air in November 2017.
Are Frankenstein Chronicles based on a true story?
Children are being abducted, murdered, and sold to someone cutting them apart and reassembling them Frankenstein-style. The macabre murders are clearly an act of fiction — CLEARLY, people — but the show is so committed to historical accuracy that it’s actually hard to parse fact from fiction.
Is The Frankenstein chronicles scary?
The series, a spooky crime thriller that pits a “sort of” detective named John Marlott (Sean Bean) against a mysterious killer, mixes the hallmarks of the Victorian penny dreadful genre with some super-specific historical references and a boatload of cameos from some of British literature’s biggest titans.
Is Jemima Hervey dead?
Back for the Dead / Bus Crash: A mixture with Lady Jemima Hervey in series 2, who dies offscreen between seasons but appears as a ghost to Marlott. It’s not immediately obvious she’s actually dead, however, as at this point in the story she could plausibly be Faking the Dead or merely be a hallucination.
How did Marlott end up in Bedlam?
As the period horror-thriller began its second series, three years had passed and it was 1830. Former river policeman, a military veteran, and wrongly convicted murderer Marlott were chained up in Bedlam hospital’s wing for the criminally insane, a broken man haunted by disorientating visions of his dead family.
What happens in Season 2 of the Frankenstein Chronicles?
The 2017 six-episode Second Season of The Frankenstein Chronicles picks up three years after the twisted events of its Debut Series as Sean Bean’s supposedly dead Inspector John Marlott pursues Lord Hervey (Ed Stoppard) for his monstrous science while Sergeant Joseph Nightingale (Richie Campbell) investigates the murders.
