BBC One has announced that Doctor Foster will be back for a second season.
Starring Suranne Jones (Scott & Bailey) and Bertie Carvel (Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell), Season 1 concluded with a consolidated audience of 10.1m viewers last month.
Creator and writer Mike Bartlett commented: “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.”
Suranne Jones added: “After discussions with Drama Republic and the wonderful Mike Bartlett I am thrilled to announce we will all be reunited to tell Gemma’s next chapter, and I can’t wait for the audience who invested in these characters to find out what explosive twists and turns Mike has in store. Now we can look into what happens to a woman after divorce, when deceit and revenge have taken their toll. What a gift of a part and a dream to work with Mike again!”
Executive producer Roanna Benn teased: “Mike is keen to keep interrogating what is the right and wrong way to behave in the most surprising and exhilarating way possible…”
