The English creator, Tony Schumacher, reveals to us that the sequel is already on the way.
Canal + broadcasts this evening the continuation and the end of The Responder. The first season in 5 episodes will end, but not the nocturnal adventures of Chris Carson, a cop from Liverpool worn out, played by Martin Freeman.
Indeed, a season 2 has already been confirmed by the BBC: “The first season did very well across the Channel“, confides the creator, Tony Schumacher. “The first episode was seen by 10 million viewers. It’s pretty huge. We were delighted and relieved. Even the reviews were very positive.”
The Responder on Canal +: “It’s not a cop show!”
The rest is on track as he confirms to Première: “We still have another season to do with Chris I believe. The Responder will certainly be done over two seasons… Or maybe more, I don’t know exactly yet. But I’m writing the first episodes of the sequel and we’re going to shoot in the coming months, we don’t know when yet…”
This season 2 of The Responderalso in 5 episodes, should therefore not be broadcast before 2023.
