ITV has confirmed that The Good Karma Hospital will be getting a second series next year.
The channel announced commission of series two of the drama following the airing of its first series finale on Sunday.
Set in Southern India, the six-part drama has been getting an average of 7 million viewers each Sunday night and crushed competition from other channels on Sunday evening.
The life-affirming drama full of heart and unforgettable characters stars Amanda Redman, Amrita Acharia, Neil Morrissey, James Floyd, Darshan Jariwalla, Sagar Radia and Nimmi Harasagama who are all set to return.
The second series has been ordered from production company Tiger Aspect Drama by ITV’s Head of Drama, Polly Hill, and Senior Drama Commissioner, Victoria Fea who will oversee the show for the channel.
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.”
The second series will begin filming in August 2017 with further casting still to be confirmed, ahead of a premiere in 2018.
