#BacktoLife, which aired on #BBCThree earlier this year and finishes its US debut on #Showtime this Sunday, has been commissioned for another series. Created by Daisy Haggard & Laura Solon, the second series will see the return of Haggard's Miri Matteson, an ex-con who is adjusting back to life in her sleepy seaside family home after 20 years in prison.
Showtime presidents Gary Levine and Jana Winograde announced the renewal:
"'Back to Life' is a charming, funny and introspective comedy that resonates beautifully with Showtime viewers. With such sharp writing and sensitive, winning performances from Daisy and the cast, we are confident that this gem from across the pond has even more delights to share with us in season two."
The second season will be a Two Brothers Pictures production for BBCThree and Showtime, distributed by All3Media International. Two Brothers' Sarah Hammond and Jack & Harry Williams will executive produce, alongside Haggard and Solon.
