After its first outing earlier this year, the BBC has confirmed a new series is in the works.

The Responder series 2 will have five episodes, once again written by ex-police officer Tony Schumacher.

Series 2 will once again be set and filmed in Liverpool with further details including a start date to be announced.

For now, series one of The Responder is available to watch online via BBC iPlayer here.

A synopsis shares: "The Responder follows Chris, a crisis-stricken, morally compromised, unconventional urgent response officer tackling a series of night shifts on the beat in Liverpool.

"Whilst trying to keep his head above water both personally and professionally, Chris is forced to take on a new rookie partner Rachel. Both soon discover that survival in this high pressure, relentless, night-time world will depend on them either helping or destroying each other."
