Oct. 6 (UPI) -- Bridgerton alum Ben Miller and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire actress Frances de la Tour are set to return for Season 2 of ITV's crime drama, Professor T.
"We're incredibly grateful to the ITV and PBS audiences for taking Professor T to their hearts, and we are actively plotting an even quirkier and uplifting Season 2," Miller said in a statement Wednesday.
"Expect more baffling crimes, more breathtaking scenery, and some answers to the most intriguing mystery of all: what is it, exactly, in his childhood, that makes the Professor tick?"
The six new episodes were written by Matt Baker and Malin-Sarah Gozin.
They will be filmed by directed by Dries Vos in Belgium and Cambridge next spring.
"Set against the stunning backdrop of one of the world's most prestigious educational institutions, Cambridge University, the second season of Professor T will see Jasper Tempest and his mother Adelaide, seek help from a therapist, which in turn will uncover more secrets from Professor T's troubled childhood," a synopsis said.
"The Professor will continue to help the police solve unusual crimes, rekindling his former relationship with Chief Inspector Christina Brand, played by Juliet Aubrey."
Emma Naomi and Barney White co-star.
Season 1 aired on ITV in the United Kingdom and on PBS in the United States during the summer of 2021.
