ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL star Nicholas Ralph opened up about the end of the series and its potential future.
The second season of All Creatures Great and Small is well underway with viewers enjoying every minute of the heartwarming Channel 5 drama. James Herriot star Nicholas Ralph recently spoke out about the ending of the series and how far he could see it going.
During a TV interview with Jeremy Vine, the presenter asked Nicholas about the future of the series.
To which the actor responded: “Who knows, we’re certainly having a great time making it, cast and crew across the board.
“There’s a lot returning for season two, which I think is a great marker,” he added.
To answer Jeremy’s question about the series potentially going to season seven, the star said: “I’d love to do more.”
Although the series is only four episodes into season two, thankfully fans can expect more out of the show.
Ahead of the recent premiere, showrunner Ben Vanstone confirmed there was: “plenty more to come.”
When asked about a potential third instalment, he added: “Yes, I think we are looking forward to a third series, I don’t think that’s a surprise.”
This will come as a great relief for fans who are looking forward to seeing more of their favourite characters and finding out their fate, as the show draws closer to its finale.
When discussing the future of the series, the showrunner also revealed he had a change of heart after noticing its popularity.
Speaking to Radio Times, Ben confessed he’d originally planned on doing four seasons but was now reconsidering his plans after its success.
He said: “I think that when we started the show, we had in mind arcs for these characters that took them across a number of series.”
“Initially, it was kind of four series but everything in this show plays out slower than you think it would,” the showrunner added.
“I think in other shows, you sort of risk the need to have more stories and more action and more things happening, but with our show, it’s the antithesis of that. We kind of give everything time,” Ben explained.
All Creatures Great and Small followed the lives of three veterinarians living and working in the Yorkshire Dales, during 1937.
It primarily followed James Herriot (played by Nicholas Ralph) as he was fresh. “Brinkwire Summary News”.
