The writer of Troy: Fall Of A City has revealed that there is “potential” for the show to return.
Created by The Night Manager writer David Farr, the eight-part drama series aired earlier this year on BBC One in the UK .
Troy: Fall Of A City went back to the Troy story’s origins: to the judgement of Paris, his scandalous love affair with Helen, and the ill-starred prophecy surrounding his birth.
Farr commented: “I think there is a very interesting potential for what I’d call aftermath series. It wouldn’t just be The Odyssey, because The Odyssey is a fantasy – it involves things that we’re not dealing with [in Troy: Fall of a City].”
He explained: “It involves monsters. It’s totally supernatural. It’s an allegory for a journey home. But there is potential for something that combines something of Odysseus’s return with Agamemnon’s return, which is an incredible story, and far more conventionally dramatic.”

Troy: Fall Of A City premiered globally outside of the UK on Netflix.
