Watch ‘The Durrells in Corfu’ Season 1 recap: Catch up on the story so far!

PBS has released a video recapping the story so far in The Durrells in Corfu ahead of the new season.

Set in Corfu in the 1930s, the British period drama series is based upon Gerald Durrell’s classic trilogy of Corfu memoirs, telling the story of Louisa Durrell (Upstairs Downstairs star Keeley Hawes), who decides to uproot her family from Bournemouth to start a new life in Corfu.

Season 2 premieres in the US at 8/7c this Sunday on Masterpiece on PBS.

Watch the cast and makers of The Durrells in Corfu remind viewers what happened in Season 1:

Season 2 sees Larry (Josh O’Connor) continue to pursue his passion for writing despite a new romance getting in the way; Leslie (Callum Woodhouse) decides to explore his entrepreneurial spirit; Margo (Daisy Waterstone) remains boy crazy and makes a play for someone thoroughly unsuitable; and Gerry (Milo Parker), who prefers animals to people, is delighted when he discovers an otter is living close to home.

Daniel Lapaine joins the cast as Hugh Jarvis – an English gentleman who sets his sight on Louisa. But after her failed attempt at marrying Sven, will Louisa be ready for a new man in her life?

Season 1 is available to buy now on DVD.

The Durrells creator Simon Nye has confirmed that a third season will air in 2018.
