Hunted: Creator Frank Spotnitz reveals details of second series
Hunted creator Frank Spotnitz has revealed a second series of the show will go ahead even if it does not have support from the BBC.
The broadcaster has reportedly axed the spy drama but its U.S. co-producer Cinemax insists it will produce another season itself.
Frank told Digital Spy: “This is the hazard of doing co-productions – it makes it complicated sometimes if you lose one of your partners.
“But we’re going forward – it’s sort of a spin off of itself and it will focus more squarely on the character of Sam Hunter. Hopefully it’ll be on around this time next year.”
He added that he still expects the show to air in the U.K. and may consider Sky as a possible partner.
Frank said: “I’m pretty confident that British viewers will get to see Sam Hunter as she continues.”
The original plans for the second series, which would have seen protagonist Sam, played by Melissa George, travel to Berlin in Germany, have been abandoned in a bid to shake up the show.
He said: “It’s going to change – that [Berlin plot] was when we still had the BBC as a partner. Now it’s one of those funny things where it’s the same character, but it’s a different series.
“As it happens, from the way episode eight [of series one] ends, it actually makes it quite organic to launch off into a different series, but it’s not the direction we would’ve gone in had we stayed with the BBC.”
Hunted is available on DVD and Blu-ray from November 26.
