It was announced on Thursday the 18th of September 2014 that BBC One had indeed recommissioned Kay Mellor’s maternity based drama In the Club, for a new second series.
When does series 2 of In the Club start?
Again set for a six-episode run, season 2 is scheduled to begin airing on BBC1 in 2015. We’ll bring you more news on In the Club’s return as and when it’s released. Filming is currently due to start back in Leeds in 2015, with the TV air date to be set for later in the year.
Given the shows recent popularity, it’s no surprise to see the ladies returning to our screens next year. After premiering in August of 2014, the first series of In the Club managed to achieve impressive peak live figures of five million viewers. Not bad for a mid-week drama.
Speaking about the news of BBC One’s decision to renew, the programmes writer Kay Mellor said: “I’m absolutely delighted for Rollem to be commissioned to produce a second series of In the Club for BBC One. On a personal note, the whole experience from script to screen was such a positive one for me. It’s going to be a bit of a juggling process as I’d love to bring all the characters back but I also want to introduce some new stories. One thing’s for sure, I can’t wait to start the whole process again.”
With a cast list featuring such names as Hermione Norris (The Crimson Field), Will Mellor (Broadchurch), Jill Halfpenny (EastEnders), Tara Fitzgerald (Waking the Dead) and Katherine Parkinson (The Honourable Woman), series 1 followed the lives of six pregnant women and their families. Featuring ladies from very different backgrounds and at varying stages of their lives, the story focused on love and the changing nature of relationships that a baby can bring.
