Finding Alice, the ITV comedy drama starring Keeley Hawes, is to return for a second series.

Airing on ITV during January and February, the network has revealed that the darkly comic drama is currently averaging 7 million viewers across all devices, with more than 10 million streams on ITV Hub.

ITV says: "The series, currently still available for viewers to catch up via the ITV Hub, focuses upon Alice's honest, raw, blackly comic journey of grief, love and life after the death of her husband Harry. Following his accidental sudden death, Alice finds herself in the midst of storm of secrets, debt, suspicion and criminality which she has been forced to confront in order to survive."

The second series, written again by Roger Goldby and Simon Nye, will pick up a year on from the action of the first series. It will explore (Series 1 spoiler alert ahead) the consequences of Alice deciding to have her dead husband's baby and the impact this decision has on her friends and family.

Executive producer Nicola Shindler says: "I am delighted to be able to continue telling Alice's very original story with Roger and Simon writing and Keeley Hawes back to explore the increasingly complicated life of Alice."

Keeley Hawes comments: "I'm so pleased to be reuniting with the brilliant team behind Finding Alice for a second series. We've been honoured to hear from so many viewers who have related to Alice's experience of grief, and look forward to sharing the next stage of her journey."

Sarah Doole from Red Production Company adds: "Finding Alice is a terrific story, brought to life through a fantastic cast and crew. It's been a brilliant antidote to lockdown as these fantastic viewing figures show, and the team at Red Production Company can't wait to bring more of Alice's life to ITV viewers."

Filming for Series 2 will commence in February 2022, with the series expected to air on ITV later in the year.
