A new mystery unfolds in trailer for the second season of Top of the Lake

Nicole Kidman Top of the Lake China Girl Elizabeth Moss

As it's been several years since the first season of SundanceTV's Top of the Lake aired, you'd probably be forgiven for forgetting all about the series. Elizabeth Moss starred as Robin Griffin, a Sydney Detective specializing in Sexual Assault who returned to her hometown of Laketop, New Zealand in order to investigate the pregnancy and disappearance of a local 12-year-old girl. Top of the Lake proved to be quite successful, and now, four years later, Detective Robin Griffin has returned for a new mystery revolving around the discovery of the body of a young woman stuffed in a suitcase washed up on Bondi Beach. Check out the new trailer below!

I'm definitely going to need to watch Top of the Lake again. I know that I enjoyed it, but for the life of me I can't remember a thing about it. The second season of the Jane Campion series is looking quite promising, especially as Elizabeth Moss will be joined by Nicole Kidman and Gwendoline Christie.

The official synopsis for Top of the Lake: China Girl:

“Top of the Lake: China Girl” is a crime mystery story that finds Detective Robin Griffin recently returned to Sydney and trying to rebuild her life. When the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, there appears little hope of finding the killer, until Robin realizes “China Girl” didn’t die alone. Robin looks to the investigation to restore herself, but her problems are personal. Haunted by a daughter given up at birth, Robin desperately wants to find her, yet dreads revealing the truth of her conception. But her search to discover “China Girl’s” identity will take her into the city’s darkest recesses and closer than she could have imagined to the secrets of her own heart.

Top of the Lake: China Girl will debut in its entirety at the Cannes Film Festival this May before airing on SundanceTV later in the fall.
