ITV orders a second series of The Good Karma Hospital

Amrita Acharia, Amanda Redman return for more Hospital drama

ITV has recommissioned a second series of Tiger Aspect Drama, The Good Karma Hospital, following consolidated ratings of around 6.7 million.

Set in Southern India, the six-part drama is created and written by Dan Sefton (The Five, Mr Selfridge), and follows British-Asian junior doctor, Ruby (Amrita Acharia) who works with a dedicated team of over-worked medics at the run-down Good Karma Hospital.

Also reprising their roles will be Amanda Redman, Neil Morrissey, James Floyd, Darshan Jariwalla, Sagar Radia and Nimmi Harasagama.

The news has been announced after the series 1 finale, which aired tonight (12 March)

Executive Producer of Tiger Aspect Drama, Will Gould said: “We are beyond delighted that The Good Karma Hospital has struck such a chord with the audience who have taken these vibrant characters and life affirming stories to their hearts. It’s been an incredibly international production, but it all started with creator Dan Sefton’s scripts, and ITV’s belief in them, so I’d like to thank them both for that. I can’t wait to see series two come to life.”

Senior Drama Commissioner, Victoria Fea, commented: “We’re very excited about developing a second series of The Good Karma Hospital. It’s brought the warmth, colour and vibrancy of India to our wintry Sunday nights. This is a credit to the wonderful cast, Dan Sefton’s well-crafted scripts and Tiger Aspect Drama.”

The Good Karma Hospital Series 2 will begin filming in August 2017 for transmission in 2018.
