Vigil has kept fans gripped on Sunday nights for four episodes, and the end is fast approaching.
At the centre of the drama is DCI Amy Silva (Suranne Jones) and her colleague and lover DS Kirsten Longacre (Rose Leslie) who are trying to hunt down a killer, Amy while stuck onboard the claustrophobic titular submarine with no idea who she can trust.
Last week’s instalment knocked everyone for six with that cliff hanger (which we won’t spoil for you here). Surely things can’t get any more explosive? We’re going to go with yes.
With Vigil fetching over 10 million viewers and becoming the BBC’s most watched new drama of 2021, surely there’s grounds to make more episodes?
Will there be a series two of Vigil?
Nothing has been confirmed but star Anjli Mohindra, who plays medical officer Tiffany Docherty teased that ‘there’s been conversations’ about a new series.
She told RadioTimes.com: ‘I think there’s stuff on the horizon. But nothing confirmed just yet.’

Before the drama launched, creator and writer Tom teased the future of the show, implying that any subsequent tales may not take place on a submarine, as ‘we have probably told as many of the stories as we would wish to tell on a submarine’.
Tom explained that he would ‘love to burrow’ into some of the characters in the show, adding: ‘So if there’s a will to do it from everyone else then certainly I would be up for it.’
Fingers crossed the BBC throw us a bone after the finale…
How many episodes of Vigil are left?
Turning back to the current series though, there are six episodes in total with the fifth one airing tonight, September 19.
Episode six – the final instalment – will go out on September 26.
Vigil airs Sundays at 9pm on BBC One.
