'Liar' To Return For A Second Series

News Image
ITV has confirmed that the drama series Liar is to return for a second series.

The drama, which is the channel's highest rated of the year, ended in a cliffhanger on Monday night, 16 October, as one of the lead characters – Andrew Earlham – was found murdered. The new series will commence filming in January 2019 and will focus on who murdered Earlham.

Both Joanne Froggatt and Ioan Gruffudd will return for the new series, which will be written once again by Jack Williams and Harry Williams of Two Brothers Pictures.

Polly Hill, ITV's Head of Drama, has commissioned the new series. She said: "Liar has gripped the nation over the last six weeks and we're delighted both Joanne and Ioan will return to play Laura and Andrew. Jack and Harry Williams are incredible storytellers and part two of Liar will have the audience equally gripped, as we find out who killed Andrew Earlham."

Jack and Harry Williams added: "We always hoped this story would return for its final chapter, and we can't wait to be reunited with the brilliant Joanne and Ioan."
