ITV’s The Good Karma Hospital confirmed for a second series
ITV has confirmed that The Good Karma Hospital will return for a second series next year.
The channel announced commission of series two of the medical drama after the first series finale aired on Sunday.
Executive Producer of Tiger Aspect Drama, Will Gould said: “We are beyond delighted that The Good Karma Hospital has struck such a chord with the audience who have taken these vibrant characters and life affirming stories to their hearts.
“It’s been an incredibly international production, but it all started with creator Dan Sefton’s scripts, and ITV’s belief in them, so I’d like to thank them both for that. I can’t wait to see series two come to life.”
Victoria Fea added: “We’re very excited about developing a second series of The Good Karma Hospital. It’s brought the warmth, colour and vibrancy of India to our wintry Sunday nights. This is a credit to the wonderful cast, Dan Sefton’s well-crafted scripts and Tiger Aspect Drama.”
Set in tropical Southern India, the six-part drama tells the story of junior doctor Ruby Walker (Amrita Acharia, Game of Thrones), who arrives in India looking for both a job and a distraction from her heartbreak. However, nothing quite prepares her for the the realities of work, life and even love that greet her. The heart-warming series has been a total success for ITV, receiving an average of 7 million viewers each Sunday night and dominating competition from other channels.
Amanda Redman, Amrita Acharia, Neil Morrissey, James Floyd, Darshan Jariwalla, Sagar Radia and Nimmi Harasagama are all set to return for the new instalment.
The Good Karma Hospital series two will begin filming in August 2017 with further casting still to be confirmed, ahead of a premiere in 2018.
