The series, created by Accused creator Jimmy McGovern, has been renewed for five more stand-alone episodes.
Actors lined up for the new run include Waterloo Road's Eva Pope and former Shameless star Dean Lennox Kelly. Reece Dinsdale, known for his role as Joe McIntyre on Coronation Street, will also feature, as will Land Girls actress Christine Bottomley and ex-The Bill actor Paul Usher.
BBC Daytime Controller Liam Keelen said: "The reception that the second series of Moving On received from the audience speaks volumes about how BBC One Daytime is delivering distinctive drama, which our viewers love."
He added: "The quality of acting and writing in the last series proved to be a real hit with our viewers and I'm delighted to be able to commission an initial five episodes of the series for the coming year."
Series three of Moving On is currently filming in Liverpool and will air on BBC One in the autumn. The second series will also be repeated in a Sunday night slot later this year.
