Stan Lee's Lucky Man is to return for a second series on Sky 1 next year.

The ten-part crime drama, starring James Nesbitt as Detective Inspector Harry Clayton, concluded last week after establishing itself as the highest-rated original drama series in Sky 1's history.

With an average cumulative audience of 1.9 million, Stan Lee's Lucky Man has also consistently been Sky's 1's most watched programme on streaming service NOW TV.

Lee, the legendary comic book writer who co-created the show, commented: "What a thrill it is that Lucky Man's coming back for another sensational season.

"It's going to be a terrific new ride with Harry and the gang, where fortune smiles on those who catch my king-sized cameo in season two."

James Nesbitt has also hailed the announcement, saying: "I'm delighted that Lucky Man was so popular with viewers and look forward to being back on Sky 1 in 2017."

The show has hooked viewers by combining a crime story with elements of fantasy, as Nesbitt's character wears an ancient bracelet that endows the wearer with immense luck. 

This gives him an edge in the cases he investigates, but also makes him a target for those who want the bracelet's power for themselves.

As well as being a hit with viewers, Stan Lee's Lucky Man was also critically acclaimed in its first season, with the Mail on Sunday describing it as "thoroughly entertaining fun", and the Observer hailing it as "a thrill a minute drama".

Sky will be hoping for more rave reviews in season two, as it tries to consolidate its position as a showcase for original drama following the successes of You, Me and the Apocalypse and Fungus the Bogeyman.

Sky customers who may have missed the first series can view every episode on demand or via Sky Go, as well as on NOW TV.
