BBC Three is bringing back Clique, the dark thriller it debuted in the spring of 2017.

The first six-part series saw Holly (Synnove Karlsen) drawn to a group of alluring, confident but troubled young women.

Series two is going to change things up, as she encounter a radically different clique: this time a band of brothers.

Living in a house share with Louise (Sophia Brown) and some younger student activists, Holly is trying to put the past behind her. But she soon finds herself the subject of intense attention from those around her – not just fellow students keen to hear about the events of last year, but also from a close-knit, smart and magnetic set of young men.

Led by charismatic, good-looking Jack, the boys' clique of freewheeling renegades has a no-nonsense attitude to what they see as a patronising university administration. When they become embroiled in a campus-wide scandal, Holly is torn between the kinship she feels with them and the unnerving sense that something darker is at play...

Holly will soon find herself caught between two camps. And from within the secure unit where she ended the first series, psychopath Rachel (Rachel Hurd-Wood) is still keeping her obsessive gaze on Holly.

Clique creator Jess Brittain said: "I'm so excited to return to Holly's intense, loyal and dangerous world. Clique is a show with female friendship as its heart, but a new clique of unknowable young men is definitely taking us to some new and interesting places."

Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, added: "We are thrilled to be welcoming Clique back for a second series. Jess' forensic exploration of female friendship and ambition struck a huge chord with the BBC Three audience in series one and we were all excited to see her go further in series two as she shifts focus from young women to a clique of young men."

The new six-part series of Clique will begin filming in Edinburgh in spring 2018. It will air on cable network Pop in the US.
