jamestown cast

Sky has commissioned a second series of 'Jamestown'. Charting the birth of a nation, it tells the story of the first British settlers as they set up new lives for themselves in America.

The first series starts tonight at 9pm on Sky 1. It's made by Carnival Films, the multi-award winning makers of ITV period drama 'Downton Abbey'.

The eight-part second series is again written by Bill Gallagher ('Lark Rise to Candleford'), and once again stars Naomi Battrick, Sophie Rundle and Niamh Walsh.

Principal photography will start in June of this year. There's no word on when it will air.

"The first series of 'Jamestown' is unique, beautifully shot and packed with compelling storylines full of adventure and emotion," said Anne Mensah, head of drama at Sky. "It demonstrates Sky's commitment to make the highest quality drama and has left us all wanting more.

"With Bill Gallagher drawing from the real events in this rich period of history for the next instalment of the series, it's a fascinating story that we are thrilled to continue telling, especially that of the extraordinary women at the heart of the show, Alice, Verity and Jocelyn."
