‘Britannia’ Renewed for Season 2 by Sky

Sky and Amazon have officially confirmed that a second season of their historical drama Britannia.

The David Morrissey Drama series Britannia didn’t hit the heights expected from its debut season, especially with the budget it was allocated. This puts it in a similar bracket to KnightFall by the History Channel, which was also renewed for a second season. 

Sky confirmed the news by releasing a press release. The new season is set for production Spring 2018. Despite average ratings, season one of Britannia was the biggest Sky original production launch on Sky Atlantic since Fortitude series 1, with the first episode watched by a cumulative audience of 1.88 million.

Cameron Roach, commissioning editor for drama at Sky, said: “The first series of Britannia brought Jez’s unique vision to life. The series is a tale of clashing faith systems, torn apart families, mystic men and fearsome queens, all told with humor, heart, epic drama and violence. Drama on Sky is about the unexpected, the visceral and the memorable, it’s about stories told in a way you won’t find anywhere else. That’s why we are delighted to be working with Jez and the production team on the next installment.”
