The Herald Sun reported that production for the second series of The Twelve will begin in the coming months. 

It will be filmed in the west of the country as part of the WA Production Attraction Incentive.

‘We can’t wait to be on ground working with local creatives and talent to bring this gripping series to life, showcasing Perth along with the incredible WA countryside.’

Series one of The Twelve tells the story of 12 jurors who, while dealing with their own personal struggles, must decide the case of a woman accused of killing a child.

It is anticipated that the second season will follow a similar premise, but with a new murder case. 

While Sam is expected to reprise his role as barrister Colby, there will be new jurors for the latest trial.

Speaking about the series last year, the Jurassic Park star said he was instantly attracted to being involved as he found the storyline ‘really compelling’. 

So much so, that he decided he didn’t want to read the full script before signing on.  

‘That’s always a very critical thing when you’re reading a project. If you want to know what happens next, then that’s telling you something,’ he told Who Magazine.

‘I thought, “I don’t want to know what happens in the end,” because you don’t in life, and I thought it much more interesting to just play it as someone who just doesn’t know what the story is.’ 

It is anticipated that the second season will follow a similar premise, but with a new murder case.
