Many fans were left reeling by World On Fire‘s season one finale tonight (November 10) after BBC One’s WWII drama ended with an almighty cliffhanger.
But not to worry – it’s good news for those who were left desperate to find out what happens next in the saga, as the BBC has confirmed that the show will return for a second series. Hooray!
Even better, writer Peter Bowker revealed to Radio Times that he has many seasons planned, saying: “I know what happens over six series for the main characters.
“If you pitch a show, people will often ask, ‘What happens in series four, episode three? What happens to this character?’ You’ve got to know and not be English about it.”
Damien Timmer, MD of Mammoth Screen – the production company behind the show – chimed in by teasing: “There’s more war and there are more years and it’s possible.”
No news of a release date as of yet, although considering the first season reportedly took two years to create, it could be a while before the show returns. Until then, you can catch up with season one on BBC iPlayer.
