The Fades Intended As A Trilogy

Although there’s no news on a second series yet, the producer of the new spooky BBC Three series says there is a three-year plan

There’s no telling yet if BBC Three’s chilling new drama The Fades will be successful enough to spawn a second series (though if it remains as good as the first episode there’s no reason why it shouldn’t), producer Caroline Skinner has told SFX that writer Jack Thorne has a three year plan.

“In our heads Jack and I have always talked about it being at least three series,” she says. “He’s got a trilogy of stories all in mind if we ever get that far.”

And does she think the chances are good of “getting that far”?

“Oh gosh, I hope so. If only I could predict. Everybody at the BBC seems very happy with it. And obviously we’re gearing up out Twitter, Facebook and YouTube presence. So get on YouTube, get on Facebook, get on Twitter and campaign!”

Well, it worked for Being Human .
