Will there be a second series of The Tourist? 

Creators of the BBC drama, Harry and Jack Williams, have said that they would "love" to return with a second season and have revealed that they are "talking about" how the show could make a comeback. 

"I would love to make this show again with these people,” Harry told "I’m not entirely sure it’s possible. I love the tone, I love the world. It’s been our lives for three years and we’ve been very, very involved with it, more so than any other show.

"We’ve loved every minute. Normally you’re sick of it by this point having watched 900 cuts of one episode but I still love it and I’d love to do it again."
