A Doctor Foster Spin-Off Is In The Works
Fans of BBC's Doctor Foster will be delighted to learn that a spin-off is in the works.
Life is a brand-new show written by Doctor Foster writer Mike Bartlett and will centre on Anna Baker (played by Victoria Hamilton) who was the neighbour of Gemma Foster (Suranne Jones).
If you remember from the second season of Doctor Foster, Anna left her husband Neil and moved away - and the new show will focus on her new life.
Speaking to the Sun, Bartlett said Life 'shares a universe with Doctor Foster' but will also feature new characters.
He added: "In the last series of Doctor Foster Anna split up with Neil and moved away. But I loved her as a character and suspected that was really the start of her story, rather than the end.
"In Life we find her living alone, under a different name, in a new city.
"It's one of four story strands that make up the series, the other three being new, completely different interconnected stories that explore the epic and extraordinary in our everyday lives."
As yet, it's not confirmed if we'll see any other familiar faces - such as Jones or Jodie Comer, who are both pretty busy at the moment, according to Doctor Foster's Bertie Cavel.
They said: "Life could get round the problem by ensuring they don't have to commit to a whole series, which is a thrilling prospect for fans suffering withdrawal symptoms since it ended."
Comer, 26, has kept herself very busy since Doctor Foster ended back in 2017, filming three seasons of Killing Eve and picking up a bunch of awards in the process.
Fans of assassin Villanelle don't have too long to wait until she's back on our screens, with a source close to the show letting slip to LADbible that it'll air on BBC One in 'June or July'.
And there's more good news because we also know that the show doesn't end with season three - as it's been renewed for a fourth, which we can we probably expect to be released in the US in April 2021 and in the UK in June/July 2021.
Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios (joint-owners of BBC America) said: "How could we not have massive confidence in Killing Eve? It has won big in every major award show and is the highest growing show on US television for six years."
