Inspired by real events, this follow-up series to the critically acclaimed Paris Police 1900 follows Inspector Antoine Jouin (Jérémie Lahuerte) in an all-new investigation. It’s Christmas Eve in Paris, 1904, and Jouin investigates a case that will take him deep into Paris’ secret underbelly: the forest on the outskirts of the city, where people come to satisfy their darkest desires. Jouin must venture off the beaten track, unwittingly drawn into a whirlwind of vice, corruption and blackmail. Everyone has something to hide, even the police.
The series was created by Fabien Nury, who also served as creator and writer for Paris Police 1900. Xavier Dorison serves as collaborating writer. The series was directed by Julien Despaux (Paris Police 1900) and Frédéric Balekdjian (Spiral). In addition to Lahuerte returning to his role as Inspector Jouin, the returning ensemble also includes Evelyne Brochu (Orphan Black), Thibaut Evrard (Before We Collapse), Marc Barbé (Captain Marleau), François Raison (Laetitia), and more.
