Francis Magee and Ian McElhinney join the cast for the second series of ITV’s THE FRANKENSTEIN CHRONICLES.

The series is a terrifying re-imagining of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein starring Sean Bean as ‘John Marlott’, no longer a mere mortal, whose purpose it is to seek revenge on Lord Daniel Hervey for taking his life, and to redeem his soul after being wrongly convicted and hanged for murder.

Set in 1830s London, Marlott must operate outside the law as he comes up against dark forces in high society and in the dangerous slums of the over-crowded capital. In his pursuit of Hervey, Marlott takes on the establishment in the form of Robert Peel’s newly formed Police force and the Church. In the darkest corners of Georgian London, Marlott acts as defender of the poor and destitute as he fights to clear his name and bring Hervey to justice.

Francis takes on the role of ‘Spence’, while Ian will play ‘Doctor Lennox’.

The series will air later this year.
