Keeley Hawes has confirmed that The Durrells will be back for a second season.
Based upon Gerald Durrell’s classic trilogy of Corfu memoirs, ITV’s new family drama launched earlier this month with 6.4 million viewers.
Hawes reveals on tonight’s The Graham Norton Show that the cast will be returning to Corfu this summer to film new episodes.
The Line of Duty actress commented: “I am so relieved people like it – you never know what people will think. So it’s back to Corfu – it’s a hard gig!”

Sally Woodward-Gentle, CEO at Sid Gentle Films Ltd., said today: “The combination of Gerald Durrell’s warm, witty stories and Simon Nye’s brilliance at adapting them meant we always knew that we had created something special. The audience reaction has been fantastic and I am delighted that we are able to continue the story and reunite the fantastic cast and crew who have become a close-knit ‘family’ on and off screen!”
Set in 1935, the series is written by Simon Nye and stars Keeley Hawes as mum Louisa Durrell.
