Suranne, who won a BAFTA TV award for her role, previously said the next series will focus on her character's new life after "divorce, deceit and revenge". She said in a statement: "I can't wait for the audience who invested in these characters to find out the explosive twists and turns.

The show’s creator, Mike Bartlett, also expressed his joy to returning to work on Gemma's heartbreaking story. "I've been astounded by the response to Doctor Foster," he said in a statement. "I'm thrilled that alongside Drama Republic and the phenomenal Suranne Jones, we're now going to tell the next chapter in Gemma's story. "Her life in Parminster may look better on the surface, but as she will discover to her cost, every action has its consequences eventually. No one comes through hell unscathed."
