A darkly comic television series filmed in and around a Suffolk town is set to return to screens following a successful debut run on BBC Four.

Detectorists, written, directed by and starring Mackenzie Crook, and co-starring Toby Jones, has been recommissioned for a second series.

The show, which gained BBC Four’s highest ever viewing figures for a new comedy, was filmed largely in and around Framlingham, and follows the relationship of two friends with a passion for metal detecting who dream of finding a priceless Saxon hoard.

Crook said he couldn’t be happier with how the series was received by audiences.

He added: “The opportunity to meet these characters again and tell some more of their stories is very exciting.”
