Children's Books News TV

We are delighted that the BBC has announced today that a second series based on Malorie Blackman‘s landmark novels will be arriving on our screens.

Speaking on the second series, Malorie said: “I am delighted that Noughts + Crosses is returning for a second series. So many people have asked me, ’So what happens next?’. Now they will find out! Having read the scripts, I think I can safely say that even those familiar with the Noughts & Crosses series of books will find surprises, suspense and so much to savour.”

Lydia Adetunji has spearheaded the 4×60′ second series as lead writer and show runner, and we can’t wait to see her vision come to life.
