Channel Four have commissioned a fourth series of Hollyoaks Later for later this year. The series which consists of a week of late-night hour long episodes will air in its normal Autumn slot at 9pm on E4 with film set to start in Summer.
The new series will be produced by the soap's series editor Claire Fryer alongside executive producers Tony Wood and Carolyn Renoylds. Speaking of the new series of the popular late-night soap, Wood said: ''We are delighted to be working on another series of Hollyoaks Later which promises to deliver a unique cocktail of humour, glamour and grown-up drama.''
''We're taking some of Hollyoaks' most loved characters and putting them in romantic, funny and dangerous situations and we hope viewers will love the result.'' said Wood. Channel 4's commissioning editor Roberto Troni added: ''Hollyoaks Later is a unique franchise extension that gives E4 audiences a new perspective on the main drama.''
He added: ''As the only British soap specifically aimed at younger audiences, Hollyoaks is constantly evolving, growing and exploring new ideas. From more Laters on E4 this year to even more exclusive content on E4.com, Hollyoaks fans can get much more than their nightly fix of the Channel Four soap.''
The decision has come due to the success of the third series late last year which followed The Costellos and The McQueens set across one night. So can you not wait for the fourth series of Later? Who should the drama center around this year and what storylines and stunts would you like to see?
