Harry Potter actress Imelda Staunton starred as the intrusive next-door neighbor from hell on ITV’s unexpectedly humorous drama Flesh and Blood, which was a big hit with the network’s ensemble cast and left viewers hanging until the very end.
There are still a lot of loose ends and unresolved concerns for fans to mull over, but there’s no word on whether or not the show will return for a second season.
As a personal trainer on Netflix’s The Crown, Russell Tovey (who portrays the show’s protagonist) has indicated that the show could be renewed for a second season, but only if his co-star, Imelda Staunton, can fit it into her schedule.
Everything you need to know about the upcoming second season of Flesh and Blood is laid out here.
Flesh and Blood Season 2 Release Date
ITV has yet to clarify whether or not there will be a second series, however series star Russell Tovey previously stated that he would “absolutely” be interested in a second season in an interview with RadioTimes.com.
“I’m hoping” for another season, but it all relies on the success of Netflix’s The Crown, which Imelda Staunton is set to play soon.
“I’m hopeful something is on the cards for Flesh and Blood next year, but there’s nothing official,” the Years and Years star told What’s on TV.
However, he noted that if his fellow cast members were also on board for season two, that would be a different story.
“It all boils down to accessibility. That’s a dilemma because Imelda Staunton plays Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown. There’s still more I’d like to do, though:”

It was Vivien, the recently widowed mother of three adult children, who was swept off her feet by a retired surgeon (and reputed gold digger) named Mark. Her overprotective neighbor, Mary, was also concerned.

A mystery victim was the focus of the first season’s first four episodes, which were narrated in flashbacks as a separate witness was summoned to testify in the present day (and narrate events).
It wasn’t until the fourth episode that we learned that Mark had been pushed from the family balcony by Vivien’s children on purpose – and that he was in intensive care and unlikely to wake up. Mary, afraid for the safety of the children, attempted to suffocate him.
It’s likely that a second season will deal with Mark waking up and telling the police and his former neighbor Vivien what her kids and favorite neighbor had done to him in the last seconds of the series finale.
Flesh and Blood Season 2 Characters: Who will return for the sequel?

Meanwhile, Francesca Annis (Home Fires), Stephen Rea (Dickensian), and Imelda Staunton (The Crown’s Olivia Colman’s successor) are all expected to reprise their roles as Vivien and Mark respectively.

Even more distressing is when their mother begins to suffer under his care. They also have to deal with failing marriages and issues at work in their personal life, which are also explored in the series.
In the background, Mary (Imelda Staunton), Vivien’s neighbor, seems to be overly interested in her life. The finale of The X Factor has finally been broadcast on ITV, and fans are left wondering if it will return due to the dramatic cliffhanger finish.

ITV has yet to say whether or not Flesh and Blood will be recommissioned for a second season.
However, according to the show’s creators, there appears to be some optimism for the future of the show.
