Based upon Gerald Durrell’s classic trilogy of Corfu memoirs, the family drama launched in April 2016 and tells the story of Louisa Durrell, who makes a radical change and uproots her four unruly ‘children’ Larry, Leslie, Margo and Gerry, from Bournemouth to start a new life in Corfu in the 1930s.

In the six brand new episodes, Larry (Josh O’Connor) continues to pursue his passion for writing despite a new romance getting in the way; Leslie (Callum Woodhouse) decides to explore his entrepreneurial spirit; Margo (Daisy Waterstone) remains boy crazy and makes a play for someone thoroughly unsuitable; and Gerry (Milo Parker), who prefers animals to people, is delighted when he discovers an otter is living close to home.

Daniel Lapaine joins the cast as Hugh Jarvis – an English gentleman who sets his sight on Louisa (Keeley Hawes). But after her failed attempt at marrying Sven, will Louisa be ready for a new man in her life?
