“In the Flesh” star Luke Newberry is to appear in Season 2 of “Suspects,” Channel 5’s semi-improvised British police-procedural crime drama, it has been revealed.
The 23-year-old actor is best known for playing the lead in Dominic Mitchell’s BAFTA-winning zombie drama series, In the Flesh, which concluded its second season last week.
Suspects was a surprise hit for Channel 5 last year, and is currently back in production. It stars Fay Ripley (The Stretford Wives), Clare Hope-Ashitey (Jimi: All Is by My Side) and Damien Molony (Being Human).
The news that Newberry would be appearing in Season 2 of Suspects has come via Twitter. First, the actor himself let the cat out of the bag, by tweeting that he’d just finished filming his part for the show, describing his co-stars as “top cops.”
“That's a wrap on #Suspects. You guys are top cops! @damienmolony @FayRipley @ClareAshitey @channel5_tv X,” Newberry wrote.
Now, Suspects producer Kara Manley has confirmed his involvement by tweeting a photograph of Newberry and Molony together, relaxing in between filming of the series.

Molony is best known for playing a vampire, Hal, in the British version of Toby Whithouse’s Being Human.
Suspects USP is that the actors take a detailed plot synopsis of the story and then improvise their dialogue and actions. According to Digital Spy, the series will return to TV screens the autumn of 2015.
Other crime shows broadcast by Channel 5 include the Irish drama series starring Iain Glenn and Killian Scott (Love/Hate), Jack Taylor and the non-drama crime series Police 5 — which features Shaw ‘Keep ’em peeled!’ Taylor — and Criminals: Caught On Camera.
