ITV's Head of Drama, Polly Hill, has given the green light for a second season of the critically acclaimed thriller "Malpractice."

Created by the award-winning production company World Productions, a subsidiary of ITV Studios, "Malpractice" has secured a second season following its status as the most-watched new drama on ITV1 in 2023, with a launch episode garnering 6.7 million viewers over a 28-day viewing period. The upcoming five-part series, executive produced by Simon Heath, CEO of World Productions, and former NHS doctor Grace Ofori-Attah, is set to premiere on ITV1 and will be available for streaming on ITVX.

The initial season, a gripping cat-and-mouse thriller starring Niamh Algar, Helen Behan, Jordan Kouamé, and James Purefoy, premiered on ITV1 and ITVX in April, earning acclaim for its intricate plot and powerful authenticity, being described as a breakneck thriller.

In the upcoming series, Helen Behan and Jordan Kouamé will reprise their roles as Dr. Norma Callahan and Dr. George Adjei, respectively. The Medical Investigation Unit will once again be thrust into the heart of another suspected case of medical negligence, promising to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

Polly Hill, ITV Head of Drama, expressed delight at the positive reception of "Malpractice" and praised Grace Ofori-Attah for crafting an exciting new story that will captivate audiences once more. Simon Heath, CEO of World Productions, expressed his pleasure at the resonance of Grace's medical drama with the ITV audience and looked forward to bringing a new investigation to the screen. Grace Ofori-Attah shared her excitement about bringing another season to TV screens, exploring a new facet of medicine and delving into the complex dynamics within hospital teams.

"Malpractice" is produced in collaboration with ITV Studios, which handles global distribution. World Productions, known for producing highly rated dramas like "The Pembrokeshire Murders" and "Line of Duty," and critically acclaimed series like "Anne," was honored as the Best Independent Production Company at the previous year's Broadcast Awards.

Filming for the second season is scheduled to commence next year.
