The Tourist has been renewed for a second season. Initially billed as a limited series, BBC has decided to bring back the thriller series for more. Debuting in January 2022, The Tourist was among the most watched on the UK network, with an average of 12 million viewers per episode.
The drama series was released on HBO Max in the US, but the streaming service has not picked up the second season yet.
Starring Jamie Dornan, Danielle Macdonald, Shalom Brune-Franklin, Damon Herriman, Alex Dimitriades, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, and Kamil Ellis, The Tourist follows a man (Dorman) who is in a car crash and wakes up in an Australian hospital. He has amnesia and must work to uncover his identity before his past catches up with him.
BBC revealed more about the renewal in a press release.
The Tourist is the highest-rating drama of 2022 so far, having launched with a huge 12 million viewers and all six episodes were the most-watched episodes on BBC iPlayer in January this year. The Tourist will return again for a second series.
