Finding Alice fans, we've got some good news - the eccentric drama has been recommissioned by ITV.

The unique series, which stars Keeley Hawes as the titular Alice, focuses on a widow and her honest, raw, blackly comic journey of grief, love and life after the death of her husband Harry - who passes away after falling down the stairs of a house he designed.

Finding Alice is a frank and honest look at love and grief (

Following his accidental sudden death, Alice finds herself in the midst of a storm of secrets, debt, suspicion and criminality which she has been forced to confront in order to survive.

The series was written by Roger Goldby and Simon Nye, and received critical acclaim for how it explored tender and difficult issues.

The second helping of the drama will pick on after the events of season one, and will explore the consequences of Alice deciding to have her dead husband's baby, as well as the impact this decision has on her friends and family.

Fans lapped up the first series, with Finding Alice one of six top drama launches this year and having averaged 7.0m viewers across all devices - including 1.8 million watching pre-broadcast across all platforms.

Speaking about the new series, Keeley, who also served as Executive Producer on Finding Alice, explained: "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."

Fellow executive producer Nicola Shindler added: "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."
