ITV has recommissioned a second six-part series of the smart crime drama Professor T starring Ben Miller and Frances de la Tour

ITV reunites Ben Miller and Frances de la Tour for a second series of Professor T, produced by Eagle Eye Drama, written by Matt Baker and Malin-Sarah Gozin and directed by Dries Vos

ITV has recommissioned a second six-part series of the smart crime drama Professor T starring Ben Miller (Bridgerton, Death in Paradise) and Frances de la Tour (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, The History Boys) produced by Eagle Eye Drama.

Set against the stunning backdrop of one of the world's most prestigious educational institutions, Cambridge University, the second season of Professor T will see Jasper Tempest and his mother Adelaide, seek help from a therapist, which in turn will uncover more secrets from Professor T's troubled childhood.

The Professor will continue to help the police solve unusual crimes, rekindling his former relationship with Chief Inspector Christina Brand played by Juliet Aubrey.

Meanwhile Professor T's protégé Inspector Lisa Donckers played by Emma Naomi (Bridgerton) begins to regret prioritising her career over her budding relationship with police partner Dan Winters played by Barney White.

Airing on ITV during the summer of 2021, the launch episode of Professor T attracted an impressive 5.41m viewers on ITV (28 day consolidated), also performing strongly in the US where it was broadly carried by local PBS stations and is streaming on the PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel, pbs.org and the PBS Video app.

Leading Belgian director, Dries Vos, returns to direct the second series, which will once again be filmed in Belgium and Cambridge, during the spring of 2022 with Executive Producers Jo McGrath and Walter Iuzzolino. The series is again written by Matt Baker and Malin-Sarah Gozin.

Professor T is currently available to viewers to catch up on ITV Hub and also available to BritBox UK subscribers who can stream the boxset series.

In the US and Canada Professor T is available on the PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel. The second series will be produced by Eagle Eye Drama in association with Caviar and is supported by the Belgian tax shelter. PBS Distribution holds the North American rights. Beta Film will distribute the series worldwide.

Ben Miller who plays the brilliant, but troubled Professor T said:

"We're incredibly grateful to the ITV and PBS audiences for taking Professor T to their hearts, and we are actively plotting an even quirkier and uplifting Season Two. Expect more baffling crimes, more breath-taking scenery, and some answers to the most intriguing mystery of all: what is it, exactly, in his childhood, that makes the Professor tick?"

Commented Executive Producer and CCO of Eagle Eye Drama Jo McGrath:

"Ben Miller's Professor T has become a favourite with audiences in the UK, US and across the world. We're absolutely thrilled to be making another series, reuniting a brilliant cast and strong production team. It's a wonderfully warm and visually beautiful crime series which unusually manages to combine mystery, humour and poignancy within each episode. Audiences have embraced it's distinctiveness and we look forward to surprising them again in the next season."

Beta Film's EVP Oliver Bachert added:

"We would like to congratulate Eagle Eye and ITV on Professor T's continuing success, not only in the UK but also worldwide, with over 80 sold territories to date and counting. It is Beta's pleasure and honour to be the international partner of Professor T. We can´t wait to watch Jasper Tempest's new cases in Season 2."
