Faith had given up her husband for dead following the revelations about his criminal dealings, but the final scene showed him emerging from their house with their children as if nothing had happened.
Series two, written by Matthew Hall and Pip Broughton, will begin to reveal what happens next, as Faith attempts to pick up the pieces of her life and marriage.
Eve Myles said, “I’m thrilled that this brilliantly written drama found such a place in the audience’s heart and I’m so excited to be back in the beautiful west Wales landscape working with a terrifically creative and talented team – it’s a joy.”
The first series was broadcast in Welsh as Un Bore Mercher, then in English on BBC1 Wales. The series became a record breaker on iPlayer, and eventually received a prime time broadcast on BBC1.
Nick Andrews, BBC Wales’ Head of Commissioning, said, “And breathe … Keeping Faith 2 is in production. What happens next to Faith is anyone’s guess but what’s beyond doubt is Eve Myles’ ability to captivate the nation for a second time.”
An air date for Keeping Faith series two has yet to be confirmed.
