A new series of I Am will start filming next month, as Channel 4 has ordered three more episodes of the series. It’s also been confirmed that Suranne Jones (Doctor Foster) and Ashley Walters (Bulletproof) will star in one of them. Dominic Savage has returned to create each episode of the contemporary drama in season 2.

“I’m delighted to be involved in the next series of I Am. Dominic always tells important stories with great sensitivity and the process so far has been wonderfully collaborative and open which is something I thrive on,” Suranne Jones said. “I can’t wait to make what will be a very personal and thought-provoking piece and I’m thrilled to be telling this story with Ashley. I hope it really speaks to people and helps continue the important discussions around mental health.”

“I am looking forward greatly to making another series of female led stories with such amazing and incredibly talented actors, starting with Suranne,” said Dominic Savage. “It is a privilege to be telling such personal and important stories in this unique and collaborative way. These will be inspirational, relatable, and truthful tales of courage and hope, that shine a light on the difficult and challenging aspects of all of our lives.”

Channel 4’s Head of Drama Caroline Hollick added “We are utterly delighted to bring back this groundbreaking series. Suranne and Dominic have created a truly iconic, heart-rending character in ‘Victoria’, and I cannot wait to see how their extraordinary creative vision unfolds on-screen.”
