Stephen's character Andy, who was found collapsed at the end of the movie, will be back but it's not known in which capacity due to the movie's cliffhanger ending.
The five-part series will also see familiar faces from the film back in their roles including Hannah Walters, Ray Panthaki, Stephen McMillan, Taz Skyler, Gary Lamont, Hannah Traylen and Izuka Hoyle.
