Psychoville Returns For Second Series on BBC Two

BBC Two is “terrified” to announce that Psychoville, written by Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, will return for a one-off special programme to be shown next year, and a new, six-part second series.

The dark comedy thriller was centred on very different characters, who each received an anonymous mysterious letter claiming: “I know what you did…” The last series episode concluded the story at Ravenhill Hospital, for the completely insane, with a huge explosion. In the new series, all will be revealed as to who managed to survive the blast.
The first series of Psychoville, shown earlier this year, has recently been nominated for two British Comedy Awards.

Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith said: “We’re delighted that BBC Two commissioners have responded in the right way to the notes we sent bearing the words ‘We know what you did’. We look forward to being able to tickle and terrify our audience once again – preferably at the same time.”

Cheryl Taylor, Controller of Comedy Commissioning, said: “It’s great news for all, including all the dedicated Psychoville fans that this wonderfully creative series from Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith will return to dazzle and delight BBC Two viewers next year.”

Executive producer Jon Plowman said: “We are thrilled that our twisted baby, Psychoville, has been re-commissioned. We look forward to intriguing and scaring the audience next year and the year after”.

This new series has been commissioned by Controller of BBC Two, Janice Hadlow. The new series of Psychoville will be filmed next year.
