EastEnders Fans Stunned As Show Claims Season 2 Has Just Begun

EastEnders Fans Stunned As Show Claims Season 2 Has Just Begun

EastEnders fans were left shocked when the BBC soap announced its return to TV by describing the new episodes as 'Season 2'.

Bosses at the long-running drama were forced to make the decision to stop filming amid the coronavirus pandemic.

On 16 June, after 35 years of continuous airing, the BBC announced it wouldn't be showing any new EastEnders content for the time being, instead offering iconic moments from the show's 35-year history.

But a teaser released via the soap's official Twitter account told us that the last 6,124 episodes were only the start, with season 2 beginning when it returned to BBC One last night (7 September).

Helluva long pilot season, that.

Of course, it wasn't lost on fans, with Twitter users sharing their thoughts.

One person joked: "Finally EastEnders gets a second season I thought they were gonna cancel it after a terrible first season."

Another wrote: "Can anyone give me a brief overview of season 1??? Been a bit busy the last 35 years."

A third commented: "Series 1 was a good start for character building, let's hope season 3 is where the plot really kicks in when I'm 80."

Another fan replied: "BRB gonna go binge watch all 50 years of the first series before tonight's episode."

EastEnders resumed filming in late June following the coronavirus pandemic, as all the stars on the show - as well as the production and filming crews - had to socially distance in accordance with government guidelines.

Jake Wood, who plays Max Branning, claimed that CGI would be used as well as clever camera tricks to make sure nothing appeared out of the ordinary to viewers at home.

Jake was one of the first to go back on set, filming scenes alongside Adam Woodyatt (who plays Ian Beale) and Danny Dyer (who plays Mick Carter).

In an interview with Good Morning Britain, Jake told hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid: "It's gonna take a bit of getting used to I'll put it like that.

"We're all socially distanced, we are always two metres apart, it's quite extraordinary the way we are shooting it and the way we are filming it.

"I think really you're not gonna notice differences as a viewer."

Wonder how long the second season will last.
