ITV has commissioned Professor T 2 series 2 — good news for fans of the quirky crime drama
ITV has recommissioned a second six-part series of the smart crime drama Professor T starring Ben Miller (Bridgerton, Death in Paradise) and Frances de la Tour (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, The History Boys) produced by Eagle Eye Drama.
Set against the stunning backdrop of one of the world’s most prestigious educational institutions, Cambridge University, the second season of Professor T will see Jasper Tempest and his mother Adelaide, seek help from a therapist, which in turn will uncover more secrets from Professor T’s troubled childhood.
The Professor will continue to help the police solve unusual crimes, rekindling his former relationship with Chief Inspector Christina Brand played by Juliet Aubrey. Meanwhile Professor T’s protégé Inspector Lisa Donckers played by Emma Naomi (Bridgerton) begins to regret prioritising her career over her budding relationship with police partner Dan Winters played by Barney White.
Airing on ITV during the summer of 2021, the launch episode of Professor T attracted an impressive 5.41m viewers on ITV (28 day consolidated), also performing strongly in the US where it was broadly carried by local PBS stations and is streaming on the PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel, pbs.org and the PBS Video app.
Leading Belgian director, Dries Vos, returns to direct the second series, which will once again be filmed in Belgium and Cambridge, during the spring of 2022 with Executive Producers Jo McGrath and Walter Iuzzolino. The series is again written by Matt Baker and Malin-Sarah Gozin.
Series 1 is still available on the ITV hub.
