Sky have announced some of their plans for 2020, which will see the comedy drama - which starred Michelle Keegan and Joe Gilgun - return for another run, and the Robert Carlyle-fronted high-stakes political drama 'Cobra' will also be back for a second season.

Jeremy Darroch, Group CEO, Sky, said: "2020 is going to be the best year yet for content on Sky - we have over 80 original series and 40 per cent more US shows, we have new channels like Sky Comedy, Sky Nature and Sky Documentaries launching and we are announcing ten new commissions today.

"In an increasingly competitive market, we keep pushing to give our customers what they want, all the best TV, all in one place."

Jane Horrocks will star in paramedic comedy 'Bloods' alongside Samson Kayo; Greg Davies will appear in a comedy pilot 'Safe Space', which he has written; and Dawn French will star in 'The Tail of the Curious Mouse', a story about Roald Dahl and Beatrix Potter.

Sky's Managing Director of Content Zai Bennett added: "In a world where there are more hours of content than ever, we want to make sure that we're offering our customers the most high-end, engaging TV that quite simply blows them away.

"We're creating and investing in our own world-class original content that sits perfectly alongside the best from the US. This year we'll be making more of our customers' favourite shows than ever before.

"Sky is committed to more than doubling its investment in original content by 2024 through Sky Studios, as well as the proposed development of Sky Studios Elstree, a new state-of-the-art TV and film studio in North London.

"As part of Sky's commitment to go net zero carbon by 2030, Sky Studios Elstree will be the most sustainable production facility in the world, with all Sky original productions net zero carbon as well."
