The show is based on Irvine Welsh’s novel and features Scottish star Dougray Scott as troubled detective DI Ray Lennox.

Scott’s performance in the first series recently landed him an international Emmy nomination for Best Performance by an actor.

He will be leading a star-studded cast of British talent, including Joanna Vanderham and John Simm, in the follow-up, due to air on ITV’s new streaming service ITVX in 2023.

The council has granted permission for filming – set to kick off on Saturday – and issued a list of road closures for residents and drivers to be aware of.

  • The full length of Shuttle Street and College Street

From 10am until 1pm on November 6, Shuttle Street at the junction of College Street will be off limits.

Filming will then take place later that day between 5pm and 7.30pm at:

  • Hanson Street

Between 3pm on November 8 and midnight on November 9, production crews will be making use of:

  • Claremont Place between Woodside Terrace and Claremont Terrace Lane
