Season two of Wild Bill has yet to be announced by ITV but depending on the show’s success in the ratings, the drama could return. The drama sees The West Wing and St. Elmo’s Fire star Rob Lowe take centre-stage as American detective Bill Hixon who relocates to Boston, Lincolnshire to bring down crime in the so-called “murder capital” of the UK. The opening episode of Wild Bill only brought in 3.7 million viewers, making it the lowest audience for a new ITV drama in 2019.
Will there be another series of Wild Bill?
In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, actress Bronwyn James – who portrays Bill’s partner Muriel Yeardsley – said: “I would absolutely love it if it went to a second series.
“Obviously, we won’t know until we know but I think it’s something that would work so well in a second series and further.”
Meanwhile, Divian Ladwa, who portrays PC Drakes, added: “I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens. I’m sure I’ll be the last to know.”
If the show does return, it’s likely to consist of another six episodes like the first run.
Season one debuted in June this year, so depending on when the series is given the green light, we could see a second series next year.

HOW MANY EPISODES ARE IN WILD BILL ON ITV?
What will happen in Wild Bill season 2?
Wild Bill season two will see more of the same as Bill and Muriel investigate grisly cases across Boston, Lincolnshire.
They are going to be taking on a new case each week as Bill settles into life in Britain.
James said a possible new series could go in a “million different ways”.
“You’d never run out of cases to do – just like in real life. The police don’t run out of cases to do ever, so I think that would be good to explore in further seasons.”
Speaking about working with Hollywood A-lister Lowe, James said: “It was wonderful. He’s such a funny bloke on and off camera.
“You really get the sense he really cares about the quality of the show and the quality of the performance.”
Wild Bill concludes on ITV tonight at 9pm
