ITV Renews ‘Broadchurch’ for Second Series

BroadchurchAfter a truly mind blowing ratings figure for its 22nd April episode (8.9 million would be great in the US these days, that’s insane in Britain), ITV has announced that it will be renewing the series for another year.

Writer, Chris Chibnall, admits to being ‘gobsmacked’ by the shows reception, and promises there’s more where that came from. “There was another very different story we could tell afterwards. I’m really thrilled we’re going to tell that story too.”

Details of just which cast members will be returning to the seaside village of Broadchurch are being kept tightly under wraps, and at present no air date is set, though filming is tentatively set for next year.
