It's been almost three years since Top of the Lake first aired and it's still hard to shake the series' sense of creeping dread. Brace yourself for more - lead actress Elisabeth Moss has revealed that filming for season two commences this Spring.

“I’ve read three scripts so far and I’m incredibly excited where Jane is taking the story and the character,” Moss exclusively told Deadline.

The 'Jane' in question is The Piano director Jane Campion who will return to oversee what is expected to be six episodes. It is also believed that Sydney, Australia will be standing in for New Zealand when the show starts filming in March.

Season one of the mystery series followed Detective Robin Griffin (Moss) and her investigation into the disappearance of a pregnant 12-year-old girl; the actress won a Golden Globe for the role in 2014.

Moss' co-stars included David Wenham, Peter Mullan and Holly Hunter who played spiritual leader, GJ; Nicole Kidman is rumoured to be joining the cast for the second season.

The Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning actress, who played Peggy Olson in Mad Men, was at Sundance Film Festival to promote drama The Free World which follows a recently exonerated man who attempts to assimilate his way back into society after 20 years behind bars.

Since it premiered, it has drawn comparisons to hit Netflix documentary Making a Murderer.

Top of the Lake season two is expected to air late 2016.
