You may be anxiously awaiting the final episode of Fortitude tonight over on Sky Atlantic, but never fear, there is more to come yet from this Arctic based thriller as it has just been commissioned for a second series.
The creative team behind the series will return with Simon Donald writing a brand new ten part story set again in the unsettling Arctic town. Fifty Fathom’s Patrick Spence and Frith Triplady will return as Executive Producers while the cast will be announced at a later date.
Zai Bennett, Channel Director, Sky Atlantic, said: “Simon Donald created a unique and unsettling story which, week after week, has captivated our customers. I am absolutely delighted that we will be bringing Fortitude back next year with a story that promises to engage, challenge and enthral us all over again. “
While Simon Donald, creator and lead writer added "It's a privilege to return to Fortitude. It's a place where the real and the feared live side by side, where old dark secrets thaw out into the chill light of the arctic day. I'd never been anywhere like Fortitude before and I can't wait to go back".
There have been mixed reviews so far of this first series, which stars the likes of Stanley Tucci and our own Richard Dormer, but no doubt about it, it knows how to hook you in. Question is, how will they proceed for season two? Will there be yet another murder in the formerly sleepy town of Fortitude?
Although saying that, when have we ever let credibility get in the way of a good TV show.
