Will there be a series two of The Holiday?

The Holiday was adapted from the book of the same name by T.M. Logan, therefore it's unlikely that more seasons are on the way due to the series covering the book in its entirety. Not only that, the four-part crime thriller was billed as a "mini-series", meaning fans probably won't see the show return.

What have the cast said about The Holiday?

Jill Halfpenny opened up about filming in Malta for the show. "Malta was in a pretty strict lockdown when we were there, so we were in complete isolation for 14 days, doing fittings and read-throughs on Zoom," she told press ahead of the show's release.

"And then we were working six day weeks, so we had to just go to set, film, and go back to our hotel rooms. There was a beach right outside the hotel, but police were patrolling it, making sure people wore masks, so it wasn't very relaxing!"
