‘World on Fire’ is returning to PBS this spring

If you missed World on Fire last year, PBS has announced a rerun of the first season in the US soon!

From the makers of Poldark and Endeavour, the hit period drama series launched in the UK in 2019 to great reviews and premiered in the US early last year.

Opening with the German invasion of Poland in September 1939 and ending with the Battle of Britain in 1940, World on Fire takes viewers across the first year of World War II, from ordinary life in Manchester to the beaches of Dunkirk.

Season 1 will return to Sunday nights on PBS Masterpiece at 10pm from Sunday 4th April, airing after new Second World War drama Atlantic Crossing.

The seven episodes will continue airing every Sunday night until 16th May.

Spanning the years 1940 to 1941, the new season of World on Fire was set to begin filming last year, but production was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

All the main cast are expected to reprise their roles, including Oscar-winner Helen Hunt (As Good As It Gets), Sharpe star Sean Bean, Lesley Manville (Mum), and Jonah Hauer-King (Little Women).

Zophia Wichlacz and Julia Brown, who play Kasia and Lois, have given some hints about what to expect in the new episodes.

Season 2 is expected to premiere in late 2021 or early 2022.

World on Fire is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
