ITV1 orders ‘Marchlands’ sequel series ‘Lightfields’

Posted Filed under

Starring Alex Kingston (Doctor Who), Jodie Whittaker (Cranford) and Shelley Conn (Mistresses), the five-part series featured three separate families living in the same house at three different time periods.

A new sequel series, titled Lightfields, will follow a similar format to Marchlands, set in a remote Suffolk farmhouse in the wartime Britain of 1944, 1976 and the present day, BroadcastNow reports.

Written by Simon Tyrell (Survivors, The Body Farm) and directed by Damon Thomas (Monroe), Lightfields will begin filming in Rickmansworth and East Sussex later this month.

Executive producer Kate Lewis commented: “Simon Tyrell has found a bold way to approach the format that inspired Marchlands. The scripts are atmospheric and there’s great complexity to the characters as they interweave across the decades.”
