Dublin Murders has officially graced out screens, but despite the series only being one episode in, we’re already hoping for a season two.

And it sounds as though the cast are on the same wavelength, as Killian Scott, who plays the lead detective Rob Reilly, revealed he would be more than happy to return to the show.

The eight-part drama is based on the Dublin Murder Squad trilogy, written by Tana French.

And even though the show leads the drama through all three novels, it seems the star has hopes there’ll be a Dublin Murders 2.0.

We sure hope he’s right, after all Game Of Thrones managed to overtake the books, right?

When chatting to Metro.co.uk, the star confessed: ‘I’d come back!

‘When you’re a working actor you see a lot of scripts all the time, but to get to do something that’s really well written it’s a rare privilege.’

He smiled: ‘Rob and Cassie are ridiculously well written roles. They’re such rich characters.’

However, despite eager to keep the Dublin Murders alive, it turns out Killian had never heard of the books prior to getting cast.

‘I got the gig and I hadn’t come across the books,’ he confessed: ‘And I went to a book star and asked if they had any books and they were all sold out.’

Killian continued: ‘They’d ordered a hundred and said I could have one of those.’

The BBC hit debuted just yesterday and sees homicide detectives Rob Reilly and Cassie Madox take on a child murder.

After being dispatched, the pair discover a body of a teenage girl placed on an altar in the middle of an archaeological site.

But this isn’t the first time a teen has been discovered in the same location, as three children in the 80s were wrapped up in a murder investigation, seeing only one of them survive.

The police and press alike are worried that the two are connected, and it seems Rob is holding onto more secrets about his past than we might have first thought.

Dublin Murders continues tonight on BBC One at 9pm.
