‘Frankie’ will not be returning for Series 2

Frankie creator Lucy Gannon has confirmed on Twitter that BBC One’s nursing drama has not been recommissioned for a second series.

Set in the world of district nursing, the first six-part series launched in May and starred Eve Myles (Torchwood) in the title role alongside Dean Lennox Kelly (Shameless) and Derek Riddell (Garrow’s Law).


The writer had previously revealed that she had some “shocking storylines” planned for Series 2: “All our characters have great life stories and there’s enough conflict there to keep us going forever. Frankie could go for 9 or 10 series.”

What did you think of Frankie? Let us know below…

  • Meg

    9 or 10 series was an overambitious ideal at best but Frankie certainly deserved a 2nd series, there are so many things left unfinished at the end of series 1. never mind deserve – it DEMANDED a 2nd!

  • Tracy

    Pity, I enjoyed it, too much nasty programs on tv like Towie and not enough gentle drama

  • Deborah

    I loved this series. Just finished watching the first series and was really looking forward to a second season. I’m disappointed

    Disappointing! Just discovered season 1 on Hulu…really great ensemble and a guest-starring list that doesn’t overwhelm the core cast storylines.

  • Jette

    Yes, I want more too. Very good and funny. I will miss Frankie!
