We will be returning to ​Fortitude.

We're pleased to confirm that ​Sky Atlantic's most successful original commission will be back for a second season in 2016.

Described by The Guardian as 'part Coen brothers, part Beckett' and by Radio Times as 'an Arctic chiller which is as addictive as it is original and unsettling', the premiere episode was watched by 1.7 million viewers.

The creative team behind the series will return with Simon Donald writing a brand new 10 part story set again in the unsettling Arctic town. Fifty Fathom's Patrick Spence and Frith Triplady will return as Executive Producers. 

Cast will be announced at a later date, so keep an eye on ​@SkyAtlantic for more details to come.

Zai Bennett, Channel Director, Sky Atlantic, said: 'Simon Donald created a unique and unsettling story which, week after week, has captivated our customers. I am absolutely delighted that we will be bringing Fortitude back next year with a story that promises to engage, challenge and enthral us all over again. '

Simon Donald, creator and lead writer adds 'It's a privilege to return to Fortitude. It's a place where the real and the feared live side by side, where old dark secrets thaw out into the chill light of the arctic day. I'd never been anywhere like Fortitude before and I can't wait to go back'.
