WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Better.
Will there be a Better season 2?
Better first premiered on Monday, February 13, on BBC One, with a new instalment coming out every week in the same time slot.
Tonight, Monday, March 13, will see the final episode air, wrapping up Lou and Col’s story.
As of writing this article, there has been no word on whether or not there is going to be a second season.
Better hasn’t been listed as a limited series, which is where a show is definitely going to have one season and no more.
As the drama isn’t a limited series, this could indicate the possibility of more episodes in the future.
Co-writer Sam Vincent explained there is a chance for further series but it is by no means definitely going to happen.
“Well, I think it’s an open-ended question”, he said to RadioTimes.com.
“Like everything, you have to see how it goes down and that’s fair enough, that’s the way it should be.
Vincent continued: “I think the ending of season one, we are really excited and satisfied with the two episodes that close the season.
“But at the very end, it ends in quite a surprising place, I think and hope.
“In a place that the audience will not expect it to end. But as to more? We’ll just have to wait and see.”
Better consists of five episodes, which have been available to binge as a boxset on the BBC iPlayer.
