Marcella concluded its 8-episode first series (season) tonight on ITV, but the UK broadcaster has yet to make a decision on Series 2.
Per RadioTimes, an ITV spokeswoman said the show’s fate would be decided in due course.
Marcella might be in limbo, but creator Hans Rosenfeldt tells the outlet that he’s keen to bring the series back to “tell different stories” with the existing characters:
“Yes, it could come back. There might very well be a series 2. If you do television like I do television you never want it to be a one-off series because of a lot of things. A second series is a scale of success. A second series gives an opportunity to show more off about the characters. A second series is giving you an opportunity to tell different stories with the characters you have created and to spend more time with them. You always aim for more than one series.
Marcella streams outside the UK on Netflix from July 1, 2016.
Stay tuned as we await the fate of Marcella Series 2…
