Fans of The Devil’s Hourrejoice: the show has been renewed for not one, but two further seasons.
And, it may not be too long a wait (considering the first season premiered less than a month ago), with Prime Video stating that the Amazon Original will start filming early next year.
The streaming service also confirmed the presence of all core characters, with Peter Capaldi returning as Gideon Shepherd, and Jessica Raine continuing her journey as Lucy Chambers.
Detailing what’s in store for the murderer and his hunterPrime Video has shared: “In series two, Gideon’s true intentions are finally revealed, as he attempts to involve Lucy in his mission to stop an elusive force of evil. Simultaneously a sequel and a prequel to the first chapter, expect nothing but the unexpected…”
Alongside the starring duo, Nikesh PatelPhil Dunster, Meera Syal and Benjamin Chivers will all reprise their roles, with as-of-yet unnamed new characters also due to join the show.
Speaking on the decision to renew the series, Dan Grabiner, head of UK Originals at Amazon Studios, said: “We’re thrilled with the audience response to The Devil’s Hour, and can’t wait to share the next chapter of this mind-bending story.
“Fans can look forward to plenty more twists and turns in this remarkable tale from first-time series creator Tom Moran, and welcoming back our immensely talented cast, led by Jessica Raine and Peter Capaldi.”
It seems that Tom Moran doesn’t plan to hold back for his first show, and certainly not for the coming seasons.
In a statement that will have fans scratching their heads and counting down the days until future episodes are released, the creator and writer promised: “Series one of The Devil’s Hour was just the beginning – the opening act of a TV novel. I’m so thrilled that we get to keep turning those pages and slotting the puzzle pieces into place.
“If you thought the final episode of series one had all the answers, then you haven’t been asking the right questions.”
Sounds like the plot is well and truly thickening.
