Speaking about returning to the series, screenwriter Sally Wainwright said: "Yet again the entire Last Tango cast has proved to be so wonderful together, so uplifting, heart-warming, touching and funny, as they explore Celia and Alan's relationship further, under the brilliant breath of fresh air that Gareth Bryn's direction has given them." The executive producer of Lookout Point, Faith Penhale, added: "It's been an absolute pleasure to bring the Tango team back together and watch them work their magic. Sally’s scripts are as brilliant as ever - warm and funny and very real - and our exceptional cast make it look easy. I can't wait to give the fans four more episodes of this very special drama which they rightly love so much."
