Will there be a second series of Life on BBC One?

The BBC are yet to confirm if there will be another series.

Despite the popularity of the show, a second series would be difficult to film with current Covid-19 restrictions in place.

But we’d be surprised if BBC One didn’t recommission writer Mike Bartlett to script another season in the future.

After a dance class he accuses her of “wanting to lead” and says their marriage isn’t going to work.

Henry tells Gail he is “releasing her from the promise” she made on their wedding day 50 years ago, and says: “You can’t pretend it’s working.”

Gail intervenes in Hannah’s wedding, making sure she doesn’t make the wrong choice.

At the end of the episode, Henry tracks Gail down and the pair pretend they are meeting for the first time.

Henry tells Gail “you’re never too old for a new start”, and they go out for a drink to “start again”.

We learn that Gail has been wearing a locket necklace full of confetti from their wedding.
