All Creatures Great and Small will return for a second series and it may be sooner than later!
In a tweet today, Chanel 5 had this to say:
We have exciting news! James Herriot and the gang will return to your screens soon for a second season of All Creatures Great and Small! #ACGAS
While we already knew a second series was coming, this suggests it might be as soon as the first few months of 2021. And if you’re one of many fans of the programme, don’t forget there will be a Christmas special as well. If you didn’t catch it at the time, or want to watch again before the holiday season, some episodes are available on My5. You can also watch the official trailer for the series here.
The synopsis for the Christmas special promises drama:
The Christmas special visits the residents of Skeldale House on Christmas Eve.
It’s the day before Helen and Hugh’s wedding, and James is still heartbroken and masking his pain with a brave smile – and a new girlfriend!
Skeldale House is hosting its annual Christmas party, and James has Connie (Charlie May-Clark) as his guest.
Channel 5 says:
“Preparations are well under way. Tristan has decked the halls with mistletoe and Mrs Hall has laid on a feast and is looking forward to her son Edward returning for Christmas.
“Siegfried is delighted when Dorothy turns up and wonders if now is the time to throw caution to the wind.”
And it wouldn’t be an episode of ACGAS if there wasn’t an emergency call for a vet! As the house fills with locals, James receives a call from Bert Chapman who wants help with his dog who is struggling to give birth.
“James has to leave the party and is surprised when Helen asks if she can go with him to get away from all the wedding gossip. However, the trip does not go smoothly, and the pair end up trapped together! Will James pluck up the courage to tell Helen his true feelings for her?”
The cast is Nicholas Ralph (James Herriot), Samuel West (Siegfried Farnon), Callum Woodhouse (Tristan Farnon), Anna Madeley (Mrs Hall) and Rachel Shenton (Helen).
