Six more 30-minute episodes of the paramedic sitcom have been ordered, with production resuming in London this month.
Created by and starring Samson Kayo, with Jane Horrocks, and a supporting cast that included Julian Barratt, Lucy Punch, Adrian Scarborough, Aasiya Shah, Sam Campbell and Kevin Garry, Bloods was written by Kayo's co-creator Nathan Bryon and Paul Doolan, airing on Sky One in May and June.
Focusing on the partnering of swaggering but insecure Maleek (Kayo) with over-friendly northern divorcee Wendy (Horrocks) as they attend a never-ending succession of 999 calls, the first series ended with the mismatched ambulance crew reconciling after delivering a baby.
Critics gave it a mixed response, with the Independent hailing it as "a magnificent paramedic comedy full of gallows humour", the Observer deciding that "it somehow works as a comedy, if of the sweeter rather than distinctly darker kind" and The Guardian felt it had "a charm and warmth that, with a bit of a punch-up to the script, could turn it into something well worth a weekly 22 minutes of your time".
