All Creatures Great and Small's finale aired on Channel 5 on Tuesday night, and it's safe to say that viewers were devastated to see it go! The breakout show has become a television staple over the last few weeks - but will it be back for more? Find out everything we know about season two so far...

While Channel 5 has yet to confirm whether the show will be back, it was so successful that we would be surprised if it concluded after just one series!

The cast and crew are certainly very keen to make it happen, as executive producer Colin Callender says: "We are using this time (during the COVID-19 pandemic) to commission Ben Vanstone and the writing team to work on season two, with the hope of getting back to production in the New Year on the second season (...) we all hope this will become a regular part of the Channel 5 schedule.

Did you enjoy the finale?

Samuel West, who plays Siegfried Farnon, added: "It’s odd actually how little you get the chance as an actor to play a character for a while. And when they’re as important as these ones, the possibility of doing it again would be wonderful."

Viacom UK's director of programmes, Ben Frow, said: "Whatever happens, we are going to do it again! It’s an important piece of our portfolio. I don’t like to predict but I’m optimistic about it that we will definitely do a second series. And a third! And wouldn’t it be nice to do a fourth and a fifth!"

There will be a Christmas special in 2020

Luckily, fans won't have too long to wait until the show's Christmas special, which was luckily filmed alongside season one, and so won't be delayed due to the lockdown. We can't wait to see what happens!
