SOME viewers have been left disappointed with new show The Larkins – adding that it “has nothing on the original.”
The ITV reboot of the classic 90s series has split opinion, and has led fans to question whether it will be renewed for a second series.
Will there be a season 2 of The Larkins?
So far ITV is yet to reveal if there will be a second series of The Larkins.
However, a TV insider believes that the channel want it back for a second year – after deeming it a hit.
The source said: “The Larkins has turned out to be the Sunday night hit they hoped it would be.
“The show has got around 4million viewers an episode.
“But they have been thrilled by the fact it’s been watched by almost an equal number on the ITV Hub.
“Bradley (Walsh) is particularly enthusiastic about a sequel because he’s very much taken ownership of the role of Pop Larkin.”
The channel has also announced that a Christmas special has been commissioned.
Speaking on The One Show earlier this year, Bradley Walsh, revealed that filming for the festive episode was already underway.
He said: “We’re making the Christmas Larkins in Kent. We’ve got all the snow – honestly, it’s amazing, absolutely tremendous, Brilliant, brilliant.”
Meanwhile actress Joanna Scanlan, who plays Ma Larkin, has said to expect the unexpected from the season special.
During a press event for the new series she revealed: “It’s not necessarily what you would expect from a Christmas special.
“It has lots of twists and turns.”
What is the Larkins about?
The Larkins follows the lives of a working class family as they go about their lives in a small village in rural Kent.
Although the Larkins are kind people who are always trying their best, they're constantly met with challenges from nosy neighbours and snobby authorities.
Much of the novel and original show focused on Mariette Larkin, one of the daughters, who gets caught in a love triangle.
Mariette is caught between Charley, an accountant new to the village, who has been sent there to investigate her family's tax affairs, and the mysterious Tom Fisher.
