Torchwood: Series Two (Credit: Big Finish Productions) Big Finish has announced that a second series of Torchwood is currently in pre-production for release in early 2016. Series 2 will begin with the first of six stories in March 2016; just one month after the first series has concluded. The original release schedule for Series 1 had Episode 2, Fall to Earth being released in March 2016 but will now be released next month.

Torchwood Producer James Goss said:
Everyone involved's just had so much fun that we didn't want to stop, and Big Finish said, "It's okay, you don't have to". We've already got the first script in and it's a delight.

Big Finish Executive Producer Jason Haigh-Ellery added:
It’s wonderful to be able to commit so soon to a second series of Torchwood, this is completely down to the immense support we have received from the fans of the series. We are delighted to be continuing the adventures of Captain Jack and his team!

Co-Executive Producer Nicholas Briggs said:
I couldn’t really imagine that the response to our Torchwood series wouldn’t be positive, so I’m very pleased not to have been proved wrong. The series has so many dedicated followers and the audios have been written, directed and produced with such love for the source material. James Goss, as producer, has brought so much enthusiasm and joy to the project. I find myself hoping every day that I’ll receive another excited email from him.

And we’re so grateful that the brilliant stars of Torchwood have come in to record and have been so bloomin’ good! Russell T Davies has been so supportive and full of encouragement too. Frankly, we had no choice but to get on with a second series as soon as possible.

Series 1 continues in October with Torchwood: Fall to Earth, starring Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones, followed in November by Torchwood: Forgotten Lives with Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper and Kai Owen as Rhys Williams. Three further releases will follow at monthly intervals.
