The Greek island of Corfu is to again host a popular U.K. drama based on the life of author Gerald Durrell.
Broadcaster ITV has recommissioned another series of The Durrells, an award-winning drama based on a trilogy of books written by Durrell when his family lived on the Ionian island in the 1930s.
British actor Keeley Hawes will return as Louisa Durrell for six new episodes to be written by BAFTA-winning author Simon Nye.
The series follows Louisa and her four children, ranging from age 11 to adulthood, as they move to Greece due to economic pressures and the loss of their father. There they experience intriguing personal journeys while adjusting to a new home and culture.
Also re-joining the cast will be Greek actor Alexis Georgoulis who plays Spiro, a driver and love interest for Louisa Durrell.
So, let’s see what will happen to The Durrells in the next series! If you want to discover the places where they used to visit, then book your stay at The White House in Kalami, or a table in The White House restaurant with its new chef and get a taste of Corfu too.
