Peter Capaldi and Jessica Raine will return for two further series of Prime’s critically acclaimed thriller.

Here’s what Amazon Studios have to say…

The next two instalments of the critically acclaimed Amazon Original will continue the story of Lucy Chambers (Jessica Raine), a woman caught up in the hunt for serial killer Gideon (Peter Capaldi) in ways she never could imagine.

In Series Two, Gideon’s true intentions are finally revealed, as he attempts to involve Lucy in his mission to stop an elusive force of evil. Simultaneously a sequel and a prequel to the first chapter, expect nothing but the unexpected

We’re told that Nikesh Patel (Starstruck), Phil Dunster (Ted Lasso) Meera Syal (Yesterday) and Benjamin Chivers are all reprising their roles, with new cast to be announced.

Writer of The Devil’s Hour Tom Moran says:

“Telling a story on television is a precarious business. Series One of The Devil’s Hour was just the beginning—the opening act of a TV novel. I’m so thrilled that we get to keep turning those pages and slotting the puzzle pieces into place. If you thought the final episode of Series One had all the answers, then you haven’t been asking the right questions.”

Hartswood Films (Dracula, Sherlock, Inside Man) produce The Devil’s Hour, and its executive producers are Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue.

Sue Vertue adds:

“It goes without saying that we are over the moon to be continuing Lucy’s story with two more series. Tom Moran and his big brain have so much more planned for us all. This was always envisioned as a three-series arc, and it’s going to be a thrilling ride.”

Filming recommences in early 2023. In the meantime, we’ll have to be brave enough to rewatch the first series!
