Jane Campion’s neo-noir series Top of the Lake will return this September to SundanceTV. Elisabeth Moss will return to her role as Detective Robin Griffin and will be joined by Nicole Kidman, who recently starred in the HBO series Big Little Lies.
Moss’ Griffin returns to Sydney to reconnect with a daughter she gave up for adoption, who was raised by Kidman’s Julia in Top of the Lake: China Girl. A suitcase containing the body of a young Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach. When Griffin realizes that her estranged daughter’s new boyfriend may have worked at the brothel that the deceased girl disappeared from, the detective’s personal and professional lives intersect in a painful way.
The show will also star Game of Thrones‘ Gwendoline Christie alongside David Dencik, Alice Englert and Ewen Leslie. New episodes will air weekly on SundanceTV and will be available for streaming the following day on Hulu. Currently, Moss is starring in the Hulu exclusive The Handmaid’s Tale, based off Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel of the same name.
