ITV Orders Second Series Of The Good Karma Hospital

Following last night’s series finale, ITV has announced that The Good Karma Hospital, written by Dan Sefton (Delicious), will return for a second series in 2018.

Set in the tropical paradise of Goa, The Good Karma Hospital follows a team of British and Indian medics as they cope with work, life and love at an over-worked and under-resourced cottage hospital. Run by a gloriously eccentric Englishwoman (Amanda Redman), the “Good Karma” turns no one away, with locals, ex-pats and tourists all welcome through its doors.

With exotic medical cases and unforgettable characters, the series mixes the heartbreaking with the humorous, as the doctors, nurses and patients discover that the hospital is more than just a rundown medical outpost – it’s a home.

Senior Drama Commissioner for ITV, Victoria Fea, said: “We’re very excited about developing a second series of The Good Karma Hospital. It’s brought the warmth, colour and vibrancy of India to our wintry Sunday nights. This is a credit to the wonderful cast, Dan Sefton’s well-crafted scripts and Tiger Aspect Drama.”

Filming will begin in August 2017, with Amanda Redman, Amrita Acharia, Neil Morrissey, James Floyd, Darshan Jariwalla, Sagar Radia and Nimmi Harasagama all set to return.
