Controller of BBC Two Janice Hadlow confirms that Bel (Romola Garai) Hector (Dominic West) and Freddie (Ben Whishaw) will return to BBC Two next year for a second six-part series of The Hour.
The second series will be set ten months on and will shine a spotlight on the relationships between news and celebrity in Fifties London. Behind the scenes of the topical news programme, our highly competitive, sharp-witted and passionate news trio will continue to thrill as a group of outsiders working together.
Jane Featherstone, Creative Director and Executive Producer, says: "In series two of The Hour we are going to find out what happens next in the lives of our news team, as they engage with a new year full of old flames, new loves, thrilling stories and plenty of scandal. Taking us even deeper into our characters' lives and engaging the viewers with its energy, wit and story, we're chuffed to bits to be able to keep the world alive."
