save me

'Save Me' is coming back for series two. The first series of the crime drama aired at the end of February.

It focussed on Nelly Rowe (played by Lennie James), an anti-hero who's a "charmer, chancer, fighter, liar and, at his age, a man who should know better."

Nelly's life is turned upside down when he is arrested and accused of kidnapping his 13-year-old daughter, Jody, who he barely knew existed.

Suranne Jones ('Doctor Foster') played Claire, Jody's mother and Nelly's ex-lover. Both James and Jones will return for series two.

As well as starring, Jones created and wrote the first series. It was produced by the makers of 'Line of Duty'.

"I am so chuffed that we get to keep telling the story of 'Save Me'," James said in a statement. "Thank you to Sky Atlantic and a huge thank you to everyone who watched our little show and enjoyed it. More to come as soon as I can sit down to write it!"

Jones added: "I am so thrilled to be returning for the second series of 'Save Me'. The reaction to the show has been amazing and I love being part of a great ensemble piece. Lennie has this fantastic energy and his writing is so real and poetic. I cannot wait to read what he creates next."

The first episode of series one was watched by a cumulative audience of 1.73 million viewers. Almost 700,000 people binge-watched the first series in less than a fortnight.
