BBC One show Dr Foster – filmed in Hitchin earlier this year – is set to return for a second series, it has been announced today.
The five-part drama, which saw film crews visit the town’s Market Place for stints in March and May, attracted 10.1m viewers for the final episode last month – second only to Call The Midwife this year on the BBC when it comes to the genre.
The series, set in the fictional town of Parminster, saw former Coronation Street star Suranne Jones play the lead role.
About the news, she said: “After discussions with Drama Republic and the wonderful writer Mike Bartlett, I am thrilled to announce we will all be reunited to tell Gemma’s next chapter, and I can’t wait for the audience who invested in these characters to find out what explosive twists and turns Mike has in store.
“Now we can look into what happens to a woman after divorce, when deceit and revenge have taken their toll. What a gift of a part and a dream to work with Mike again!”

Writer and creator Mike Bartlett added: “I’ve been astounded by the response to Doctor Foster. So I’m thrilled that alongside Drama Republic and the phenomenal Suranne Jones, we’re now going to tell the next chapter in Gemma’s story. Her life in Parminster may look better on the surface, but as she will discover to her cost, every action has its consequences eventually. No one comes through hell unscathed.”
