BBC Three has confirmed that the eagerly awaited Season 2 of its hit zombie drama series “In the Flesh” will begin early next month.
In The Flesh stars Luke Newberry as Kieren, a sufferer of PDS — post-death syndrome. Season 1, which was broadcast in 2013, saw Kieren return to his family, in Roarton, after his death four years previously.
Created by Dominic Mitchell, the first season ran to three 60-minute episodes. Such was its success with viewers and critics alike, both in the UK and North America, that BBC Three immediately ordered more episodes.
Season 2, which again comprises six hour-long intallments, will commence next weekend — Sunday, May 2, at 10 p.m. BST.
According to Digital Spy, as the story resumes, Kieren finds himself “caught up in the crossfire between the Undead Liberation Army and extreme political party Victus.”
Emily Grace Bevan and Harriet Cains both return from Season 1, as Kieran’s friend, Amy, and sister, Jem, respectively. They are joined by Emmett Scanlan (Hollyoaks) as Simon and Wunmi Mosaku as Maxine Martin. Simon is described as “a charismatic disciple of the Undead Prophet,” while Maxine is a Victus Party memberand and Roarton’s newly elected Member of Parliament.
In March, it was announced by the BBC’s Director General, Tony Hall, that BBC Three as a conventional television station was to be scrapped and the brand moved online.
Although it is currently not known which BBC Three programmes will survive the transition, it is hoped that original drama such as In the Flesh will continue beyond the channel’s current incarnation.
