Prime Video has today confirmed that, following the success of the UK Original thriller “The Devil’s Hour,” the series will return for a further two more seasons.
Jessica Raine (“Patrick Melrose”) and Peter Capaldi (Paddington, “Dr. Who”) will reprise their roles as Lucy Chambers and Gideon, alongside Nikesh Patel (Starstruck), Phil Dunster (“Ted Lasso”), Meera Syal (Yesterday), Benjamin Chivers, and new characters. The next season will launch exclusively on Prime Video in over 240 countries and territories with filming scheduled to begin early next year.
The next two instalments of the critically acclaimed Amazon Original will continue the story of Lucy Chambers, a woman caught up in the hunt for serial killer Gideon in ways she never could imagine. Season Two will see Gideon’s true intentions finally revealed, as he attempts to involve Lucy in his mission to stop an elusive force of evil. Simultaneously a sequel and a prequel to the first chapter, expect nothing but the unexpected…
Commenting on the news, Dan Grabiner, head of UK Originals, Amazon Studios, said, “We’re thrilled with the audience response to “The Devil’s Hour,” and can’t wait to share the next chapter of this mind-bending story … Fans can look forward to plenty more twists and turns in this remarkable tale from first-time series creator Tom Moran, and welcoming back our immensely talented cast, led by Jessica Raine and Peter Capaldi.”
The Devil’s Hour is produced by Hartswood Films (“Dracula,” “Sherlock”), written by Tom Moran, and executive produced by Steven Moffat (“Doctor Who,” “Dracula,” “Sherlock”), Moran, and Sue Vertue (“Dracula,” “Sherlock”).
Vertue, executive producer and CEO of Hartswood Films, said, “It goes without saying that we are over the moon to be continuing Lucy’s story with two more series. Tom Moran and his big brain have so much more planned for us all. This was always envisioned as a three-series arc, and it’s going to be a thrilling ride.”
“Telling a story on television is a precarious business,” added Tom Moran, writer and creator. “Series One of “The Devil’s Hour” was just the beginning — the opening act of a TV novel. I’m so thrilled that we get to keep turning those pages and slotting the puzzle pieces into place. If you thought the final episode of Series One had all the answers, then you haven’t been asking the right questions.”
