    Absolutely agree with previous comments. The “mini series” has been excellent, but for those of us who like to see some conclusion to the storyline, it is a ‘must’ to get the second series produced.

    I have loved this series but what a let down tonight. It has left the story line without any answers. This surely is not the final episode. When will the next series start??

    Have absolutely loved this series of Survivors. Does the BBC know anything further about a second series yet, judging by viewing figures from this series?

    Hi Alex

    Show creator Adrian Hodges discusses his plans for series two of Survivors in the feature in SciFiNow magazine No 21. If the show is popular enough to warrant recommissioning, then Hodges will be very keen to press ahead to develop a second series. Everything rests on how well the first new series is received.

    Your use of the term “first series” implies there will be more in the future. The fact that there are only six episodes being made hinted to me that this was more of a miniseries than anything. Do you actually know if it will continue beyond these six episodes? Or is that an unknown, to be determined by how the show rates?
