The amazing BBC Drama Time that featured Sean Bean and Stephen Graham is set to return for a second series. The first series of the drama that is set in a prison received 100% on the review site Rotten Tomatoes. BBC Drama Time second series will have more intense prison based action.
Yorkshireman Sean Bean played inmate Mark Cohen, a man put in prison for a silly mistake with the three-part series revolving around his as the central character. It also featured legendary actor Stephen Graham as prison officer Eric McNally.
The news of the new series comes from Radio Time who report that the second series of Time will feature a whole new cast – which sadly means that Bean and Graham won’t be featured.
The new series will instead be set in an all female prison, and will one again be a three-part series.

A synopsis for season one read: “Mark Cobden is newly imprisoned, consumed by guilt for his crime, and way out of his depth in the volatile world of prison life. He meets Eric McNally, an excellent prison officer doing his best to protect those in his charge.
