Will there be another series of Grace on ITV?

There is good news for fans of detective drama Grace on ITV.

ITV has confirmed Grace will return for a second series ahead of season one being finished.

ITV’s Head of Drama Polly Hill commented: “We are delighted to be adapting more of Peter James’ wonderful novels.

“John Simm has brilliantly brought the much-loved Detective Superintendent Roy Grace to screen and there are many more cases for the audiences to enjoy. ”

Writer Russell Lewis commented: “After the overwhelmingly positive audience response to the seaside noir of Dead Simple, (tabloid trauma tales notwithstanding!) and Looking Good Dead cued up ready to go, all at Team Roy Grace are delighted to have been given the opportunity by ITV to return to Brighton (& Hove, actually!) to continue Roy’s story with a new series of films based on Peter James best-selling novels.

We’ll be shooting out of our Brighton HQ and all along and around the South Coast from late summer through to very late autumn, so it’s quite possible that like some macabre Radio Fab Roadshow, our caravanserai of coroner’s van, SOCO unit, Mobile Incident Room may well be coming to a street near you!  As the late, great Shaw Taylor used to ask viewers on Police 5… ‘Keep ‘em peeled!’”

Fans still have a second episode to go before the first series comes to an end.

The series is a dramatisation of the first two novels in the series, Dead Simple and Looking Good Dead which will air in two separate parts over 2021.

Additionally, ITV has not confirmed a release date for episode two of Grace yet.

Speaking to Express.co.uk and other press, John Simm who plays Detective Roy Grace shared how much he loved the series and his hopes for the show’s future.

Simm said: “I’m so into these books and so into this character that I don’t think of me when I’m reading it. It’s incredible.

“We all hope, all of us, that we get to do more and that we get to do all these 17 books because there is plenty of source material and its all really high quality so fingers crossed.”

There are 17 books in the series and season one of Grace on ITV only deals with the first two, so there is plenty of scope for the series to continue.

The first episode in the series received positive reviews from viewers and critics which will only serve in the show’s favour.

At the moment, the series currently holds a 7.1 out of 10 score on popular review site IMDb.

The Telegraph’s Anita Singh also gave the series four of five stars following the first episode.

Fans of the show have been sharing their love for the first episode online and are eagerly awaiting episode two and a second series.

One fan tweeted: “Loving #Grace on ITV, it’s twist after twist. I used to live in Brighton so it’s great spotting all the locations and saying to myself, ‘I was in that pub!'”

A second fan added: “ITV did a great job with that adaptation of the first Grace novel – Peter James is a brilliant author!”

A third fan added: “Absolutely loved #Grace on @ITV. Having read every book by @peterjamesuk. I was worried that the programme wouldn’t do the book justice…fear not, it was brilliant TV, and I truly can’t wait for the next one.”

If Grace is given the green light for a second series, fans can expect the show to follow in the footsteps of season one and premiere in March 2022 at the earliest.
