The Drowning Star Jill Halfpenny Hints There Could Be A Season 2

We were obsessed with The Drowning, Channel 5's twisty-turny drama which starred Jill Halfpenny as Jodie - a woman who has struggled to keep her life together after her four-year-old son drowned.

When she catches sight of a teenage boy named Daniel, she's convinced it's her son.

Still traumatised by his disappearance, Jodie sets out to uncover the truth, sacrificing the life she has carefully tried to re-build over the last eight years.

The captivating four-part series kept us hooked up until the very end, however, the shock ending left fans divided as not everyone seemed on board with the show's final twist.

Although the ending proved divisive, The Drowning became Channel 5's most viewed commissioned drama to date.

The series consolidated with an average audience of 4.6 million and is illustrative of the success of Channel 5's continued commitment to original scripted content, following 2020 hits including The Deceived and All Creatures Great and Small.

And now, Jill Halfpenny has suggested the success of the programme could lead to The Drowning returning for a second series.

Speaking on This Morning to hosts Dermot O'Leary and Alison Hammond, the 45-year-old actor explained: "I think if they [the writers] had a story and they had an idea, it could totally be like The Missing.

"I don't know if there is another story to be told but it's a possibility isn't it? It would be great!"

In other must-see drama news, ITV has announced The Bay will return for a third season.

The broadcaster revealed Cobra star Marsha Thomason will be joining the drama, following a mega successful second season which aired last month.

The news comes after leading actress Morven Christie (who played DS Lisa Armstrong in the first two seasons) revealed she would not be returning to the ITV drama.

The new season is expected to begin filming in the spring.
