BBC period drama The Hour, currently screening on ABC1, has been renewed for a second season.
The UK series about news trio will see the return of Bel (Romola Garai), Hector (Dominic West) and Freddie (Ben Whishaw) alongside Lix (Anna Chancellor), McCain (Julian Rhind-Tutt) and Marnie Madden (Oona Chaplin).
They will be joined by new characters played by Peter Capaldi (The Thick Of It, The Nativity) Hannah Tointon (The Inbetweeners) and Tom Burke (State of Play).
The six new episodes will see the team still striving to broadcast the stories they believe in as they grapple with the looming spectre of the Cold War, the space race and nuclear power.
Filming started this week in London.
