Outlander star Lauren Lyle will battle for survival in her brand new movie, Something in the Water. 

The Karen Pirie actress stars alongside Ten Percent star Hiftu Quasem, who reluctantly attends the wedding of her old friend in the Caribbean.  

The first trailer for Something in the Water has dropped and it seems like wedded bliss is very far away for Lyle’s character Lizzie. 

Meg, Lizzie and their three friends Ruth (Ellouise Shakespeare-Hart), Cam (Nicole Rieko Setsuko) and Kayla (Natalie Mitson) are left fighting for their lives after a boat trip to a remote island goes horribly wrong. 

After one of them is bitten by a shark, the five friends are left totally stranded, with the bloodthirsty fish always on their tail. 

While fans await Lyle’s nerve wracking thriller (out in cinemas in July), we’re also still on tenterhooks to hear about the next series of ITV crime drama Karen Pirie

Following the successful three-part series in 2022, Karen Pirie, based on Val McDermid’s hugely popular crime novels, is set to return with writer and actress Emer Kenny back at the helm, alongside Line of Duty producers, World Productions. 

When the first series aired on ITV in September 2022, it quickly became one of the broadcaster's most-watched new dramas, averaging 5.9 million viewers across the series. 

ITV confirmed filming will start in Scotland in early 2024, and speaking about why KS was different from the other slew of detective dramas out there, Lauren said at a Karen Pirie Q+A: “I think a lot of the time detectives on-screen are quite often down and out guys or women who have something else really difficult going on in their lives that they're also dealing with."

She added: “I don't know, I think that it’s just something we genuinely haven't seen before. I keep saying it and it sounds cliché, but I really can't name you any other, like mid-20s female detective.”

Something in the Water arrives in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on July 5. Catch up with Karen Pirie on ITVX.
