One recommission + one stateside premiere date + one cast announcement = a lot of Brit TV goodies to look forward to in the new year and beyond.
A whole lotta TVing is going on at the BBC and ITV, as both have announced new program commissions. Plus there’s news about a returning show and another whose cast is set.
DCI Banks, one of Brit TV’s most popular contemporary detective dramas, is coming back to ITV for another series of three stories. Woo hoo!
Woo hoo! ITV has commissioned a second series of the wouldn’t-miss-it-if-you-paid-me mystery drama Unforgotten, whose first series stars Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar.
Channel 4 and AMC have just confirmed that they have recommissioned the critically-acclaimed sci-fi show, Humans, for a second series. (Yay!)
Woo hoo! It’s anything other than a disaster for Catastrophe, because the brilliant R-rated comedy that premiered in the US one week ago today is getting a second series!
More Gothic goings-on are in store for Brit TV fans, because the devilishly-dark and seriously spooky Penny Dreadful, featuring iconic creepy characters such as Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and the Wolfman, is returning for a third series.
Ripper Street fans, rejoice! The BAFTA-nominated and IFTA-winning crime drama is returning for not just one but two more series. Woo hoo!
Cue the creepy theremin music, because the worldwide hit Brit mystery, Midsomer Murders, is returning for its eighteenth outing.
Viewers who have been riveted by hit BBC period drama Poldark and ITV’s contemporary thriller Prey will get more of both, as each will return for a second series.
