Happy Valley creator Sally Wainwright has given further details about a third season being pushed back by other projects.
“For my next project I am writing about Anne Lister, the West Yorkshire diarist, who studied human anatomy in Paris in the 1820s among many other remarkable things, so what better place to research that?” she said.
The news follows Happy Valley producer Nicola Shindler’s confirmation that the show would not return until at least 2018.
“Sally is thinking about a story and the story she is thinking about literally needs time. Because if you look at the characters that are left, there is Sarah, there is James Norton and there is a young boy, who the minute he turns into a teenager it becomes a much more interesting story”, Shindler said.
“She doesn’t know what the story is yet. She is mulling it in her head but we are thinking about giving it a bit of space in story terms.”
We will hold you to that promise!
