BBC Three has announced the much anticipated news that Dominic Mitchell’s zombie drama, In The Flesh, has been commissioned for a full series following a successful three-part serial earlier this year.

Series two revisits the cauldron of Roarton where the living and the undead have reached a fragile peace. After the shocking events of series one, Kieren is hoping to get on with his second life but the arrival of new and explosive characters throws those plans into disarray. Battle lines are drawn and all will be judged.

Writer Dominic Mitchell says: “I am absolutely delighted and thrilled to be given this fantastic opportunity to continue exploring the characters and world of In The Flesh.”

Zai Bennett, Controller, BBC Three, says: “In The Flesh was a fantastically original and engaging drama for BBC Three. I’m delighted Dominic and the team will be able to tell more stories from the riveting characters and engaging world they created.”

Kate Harwood, BBC Head Drama England, adds: “It is testament to the brilliant and talented in-house drama team in Salford that In The Flesh has been commissioned as a series. I am immensely proud of Dominic’s fantastic writing and can’t wait to see how the stories unfold.”

In The Flesh was commissioned by Ben Stephenson, Controller BBC Drama and Zai Bennett, Controller for BBC Three.

It is made by BBC Drama Production North in Salford and written by Dominic Mitchell who was discovered through ‘Northern Voices’, a BBC Writersroom competition. The executive producers are Hilary Martin and Annie Baxter.

In The Flesh will film later this year and transmit in 2014 on BBC Three.
