Blue Lights Series 2 Renewal from BBC

Blue Lights, the police drama set in Belfast and broadcast on the BBC, will return for a second 6 x 60′ series, it was announced today. Blue Lights, directed by Gilles Bannier and written by Declan Lawn and Adam Patterson, co-created and co-produced by Louise Gallagher of Gallagher Films and Stephen Wright of Two Cities Television, was released on BBC One and BBC iPlayer last month to rave reviews and funding from Northern Ireland Screen.

Siân Brooke, Martin McCann, Katherine Devlin, Nathan Braniff, Joanne Crawford, Andi Osho, and Hannah McClean are all set to return for the new season.

What is Blue Lights about

The first season follows three PSNI probationary officers as they face the challenges of their new careers in one of the world’s most dangerous response police environments. Blue Lights is a drama about regular people doing extraordinary things, and it’s real, compelling, and even darkly funny.

Average viewers for the premiere episode of Blue Lights are up to an impressive 6.4 million. Since its release, the series has become the third most requested show on BBC iPlayer among all viewers and viewers between the ages of 16 and 34.

Executive Producer Stephen Wright says

Stephen Wright, Executive Producer of Blue Lights and Creative Director and Joint CEO of Two Cities TV says: “We are thrilled by the audience response to the show. Belfast is a vibrant, dynamic and complex place and we have a wealth of stories yet to come from our characters. We can’t wait to bring these to the fans.”

Filming on series two begins this summer in Belfast and further casting will be announced in due course.

BBC Studios will be the international distributor of both series one and two. Two Cities is part of the STV Studios family of production labels.
