After the success of the first series of Doctor Foster, BBC One has commissioned a second series of the show, which is currently filming.
The first series of Doctor Foster attracted huge audience figures, critical praise and awards recognition. It attracted an average weekly audience of 8.2 million, the highest rating for any new TV drama in 2015.
Writer and creator Mike Bartlett says: “I’ve been astounded by the response to Doctor Foster. So I’m thrilled that alongside Drama Republic and the phenomenal Suranne Jones, we’re now going to tell the next chapter in Gemma’s story. Her life in Parminster may look better on the surface, but as she will discover to her cost, every action has its consequences eventually. No one comes through hell unscathed.”
Executive Producer for Drama Republic, Roanna Benn, says: “We are so happy to have the opportunity to bring this extraordinary team together again to continue Gemma’s story. Mike is keen to keep interrogating what is the right and wrong way to behave in the most surprising and exhilarating way possible, and the BBC have given us their full support, which is fantastic.”
