Will there be a second season of No Return?
ITV are yet to confirm if there will be a second season of No Return.
Season One of No Return premiered on ITV and ITV Hub on Monday, February 7, 2022 and aired weekly from then on.
The show consisted of four episodes in total with the final episode finishing on February 28, 2022.
Sheridan Smith and her co-star Michael Jibson play husband and wife Kathy and Martin Powell whose family holiday in Turkey turns into a living hell.
While the story of the show is fictional, the initial pitch was inspired by an actual case of a family getting in trouble abroad, screenwriter Danny Brocklehurst shared.
"This originated from a friend of mine who had been tangentially involved in something of a similar nature where a relative of theirs had been caught up in a foreign legal system,"
He continued: "The story obviously stayed with me and percolated because quite a long time later I suddenly thought, ‘I’ve got two sons, we go on package holidays from time to time, this strikes me as a really good idea for a drama."
