Explore the backstory of Anne Boleyn and follow the twists and turns of life for brothers Max and Jake McCall following a term in prison as MASTEREPIECE presents Guilt Season 2.

Premiering Sunday, August 28

Everyone knows the story of Anne Boleyn after she became Henry VIII's lover and queen. But what brought Anne to the English court in the first place? And what role did her ambitious family - and their rivals - play in her rise and tragic fall? Discover the answer in a new three-part series beginning on Sunday. Then, Mark Bonnar and Jamie Sives reprise their roles as Max and Jake McCall, the brothers who accidentally ran over someone while driving drunk and tried to cover it up. Guilt Season 1 won the 2020 British Academy of Film and Television Arts Scottish branch (BAFTA) Award for Best Drama, so expect high things from Season 2.
