The Critics said: "Brilliantly done … a truly terrifying treat" – The Guardian

“Telling a story on television is a precarious business,” said the show’s creator and writer Tom Moran.

“Series 1 of The Devil’s Hour was just the beginning - the opening act of a TV novel. I’m so thrilled that we get to keep turning those pages and slotting the puzzle pieces into place. If you thought the final episode of series 1 had all the answers, then you haven’t been asking the right questions.”

Executive producer Sue Vertue (Dracula, Sherlock) said that the creative team were “over the moon” to be returning for two more seasons.

“Tom Moran and his big brain have so much more planned for us all,” she said. “This was always envisioned as a three-series arc, and it’s going to be a thrilling ride.”

Who is in The Devil's Hour cast?
