Sky has confirmed that dark comedy I Hate Suzie will be back with a second season.
The eight-part series, that aired on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV saw Billie Piper star as Suzie Pickles, a child star turned actor who finds herself hit rock bottom after her intimate photos are leaked when her phone is hacked.
The show then follows Suzie, whose behaviour becomes increasingly erratic, as she works her way through different stage of grief, and charts the fallout from the hacking - as it tears through her personal and professional life.
The series saw Billie, 38, team up with Lucy Prebble, with the pair having worked together on ITV2 drama Secret Diary Of A Call Girl.
And while the series is not thought to be autobiographical, there are similarities between Suzie's story and Billie's, with Suzie also having been a teen pop starlet before becoming an acting talent after starring as a side-kick in a hugely successful sci-fi franchise.
Sky confirmed the series was returning on social media - however, while we are excited to see what's next in the story of Suzie P, we're going to have a very long wait before it hits screens.
"We are so excited to continue the journey of Suzie Pickles," Sky wrote on Twitter. "Filming starts in 2022. More news to come (our lips are sealed until then)."
Billie has spoken out about the struggles she faced as she rocketed to fame, with her experience becoming the emotional heart of I Hate Suzie.
"I know exactly what that feels like and I'm sure it feeds into my performance. I'm only coming to terms with a lot of it right now," she told Radio Times.
"In my 20s a lot of my stress from that period was buried, and I still struggle to remember a lot of it. I don't regret it. I love what I do and where I'm at personally.
"But I certainly wouldn't want my children to go that way. There's an anxiety of me as a child that I probably on some levels smother my children with."
