The creators of Baptiste have hinted at what’s in store should the show return for a second series.

On Sunday night, the first run of the spin-off of The Missing came to its conclusion, with the bombshell that the long-lost son of lead character Julien Baptiste was working with a Romanian trafficking gang from inside the police force.

After Niels Horncher killed his mother and shot Julien in a showdown with the police, writers Harry and Jack Williams have revealed they are keen to explore the character further.

Speaking to Digital Spy, the brothers said: “When we first came up with Julien having this illegitimate son, and also the fact that he was capable of this thing, we definitely thought, ‘Yeah, that’s a great end point for the series.’

“But going forward, having Julien have this son who has done these awful things, is a great thing psychologically for him to dig into, because he’s Julien Baptiste. He’s going to want to try and understand that in his own way.“

The pair also admitted that there are “elements that are unexplored” and revealed that they have thought about bringing back several characters from both The Missing and Baptiste.

Harry said: “We’re always keen to keep the world alive, and keep its history alive in the show. But it’s got to be if the story allows it, really.“

However, one character that won’t be making a comeback Edward Stratton, who was played by Tom Hollander, with Harry adding: ”[It’s] a shame, because he’s really good!

“But there are elements, like with Niels, where that’s something that we wish we had explored more. Or Genevieve’s (Jessica Raine) character, who we don’t know a lot about.

“There’s definitely elements that are unexplored. And our hope is that Baptiste might return.”

The BBC has yet to officially confirm a second series, but reports have suggested it is set to be recommissioned after proving to be a ratings hit.

Baptiste is available to watch in full on the BBC iPlayer now.
