Speaking to Huff Post about the filming schedule for Season 2, Turner commented: “Yeah, it’s going to be longer than it was last year. We’re going to start [in] September… until like the first week in April.”

The Hobbit actor added: “We’ve two extra episodes this season, which is amazing. The shoot is probably seven and a half months or something like that. A bit longer than last year. But looking forward to it, can’t wait to get back there. I love shooting the show, I love Cornwall, and adore everyone in the show, so it’ll be fun.”

Season 1 featured eight episodes, so Season 2 will have ten episodes.
