“It will have a close connection with Doctor Who so don’t be surprised if Peter [Capaldi] pops up,” said one source close to the production.
It’s currently unclear whether the 8-episode first season will drop all at once in binge-release fashion or air on a weekly basis:
They have been commissioned for BBC3 so will air online first. But the BBC is still to decide whether they will be posted on a week-by-week basis or whether the whole series will be ‘dropped’ at once to allow fans to binge watch the entire first run. Like all original BBC3 content, Class will eventually find a home on a linear channel, almost certain to be BBC1.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the status of Class Season 2…
