About the Event

Join WFTV for a conversation with some of the creative team behind the second season of The Dry.

Season 2 picks up seven months on from the events of the first series, and we now meet the Sheridans in their new normal. To all outward appearances, it seems like the family is relatively content: Shiv’s been sober, celibate, and solvent for six months, Ant has hung onto his job at the estate agents and his relationship with Max, and Caroline’s making up for a lost time by shagging everyone she meets on Tinder. So far, so normal… Or is it? After all, how normal is it for three grown adults to still be living at home with their parents? And are the Sheridans really happy with this new status quo, or have they just rearranged their dysfunction and found another groove of denial to fit into?

Shiv is determined to get sobriety right this time, to cut the toxic influences out of her life for good. But what if the biggest threat to Shiv’s stability turns out to be closer to home? Giving up alcohol is one thing…but what about giving up your family?

Bringing together creator and screenwriter Nancy Harris, Element producer Emma Norton and lead Roisin Gallagher, the panel will be discussing the series returning for a second season and sharing a behind the scenes insight to the making of the production.

The Dry season 2 is available to watch on ITVX on Thursday 14 March.
