ITV has commissioned a second six-part series of the smart crime drama Professor T starring Ben Miller and Frances de la Tour.
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.
The Professor will continue to help the police solve unusual crimes, rekindling his former relationship with Chief Inspector Christina Brand played by Juliet Aubrey.
Meanwhile Professor T’s protégé Inspector Lisa Donckers played by Emma Naomi (Bridgerton) begins to regret prioritising her career over her budding relationship with police partner Dan Winters played by Barney White.
Ben Miller said: “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 Two...
"Expect more baffling crimes, more breath-taking scenery, and some answers to the most intriguing mystery of all: what is it, exactly, in his childhood, that makes the Professor tick?”
Executive Producer and CCO of Eagle Eye Drama Jo McGrath said: “Ben Miller’s Professor T has become a favourite with audiences in the UK, US and across the world. We’re absolutely thrilled to be making another series, reuniting a brilliant cast and strong production team...
“It’s a wonderfully warm and visually beautiful crime series which unusually manages to combine mystery, humour and poignancy within each episode. Audiences have embraced it’s distinctiveness and we look forward to surprising them again in the next season.”
Professor T is currently available to viewers to catch up on ITV Hub and also available to BritBox UK subscribers who can stream the boxset series.
