Created by client Peter Bowker, World On Fire series 2 is written by Peter Bowker, with episodes written by Matt Jones, and made by Mammoth Screen for the BBC and Masterpiece.

The second series will take viewers from the war-torn streets of Britain deep into Nazi Germany, the resistance within occupied France, and the brutal sands of the North African desert during World War Two.

The eleven brand new images feature returning cast members Lesley Manville as Robina, Jonah Hauer-King as Harry, Blake Harrison as Stan, Julia Brown as Lois, Zofia Wichłacz as Kasia, Parker Sawyers as Albert, and Eugénie Derouand as Henriette, and offer a first glimpse of new cast members Mark Bonnar as the mysterious Sir James Danemere, Gregg Sulkin as brave but reckless RAF pilot David, Ahad Raza Mir as fearless and determined Rajib, who leads a specialist unit of the British Indian Army and Miriam Schiweck as the German teenager Marga, a dedicated member of the Band of German Maidens.

WORLD ON FIRE is produced by Amanda Black and Angie Daniell, and directed by Drew Casson, Barney Cokeliss and Meenu Gaur. Executive producers are Peter Bowker, Sheena Bucktowonsing, Damien Timmer, Charlotte Webber and Helen Ziegler for Mammoth Screen in association with ITV Studios, Lucy Richer for the BBC, and Susanne Simpson and Rebecca Eaton for Masterpiece PBS.
