The co-creator of Sky Living's Bedlam has confirmed that pre-production has begun on a second series.

Neil Jones revealed to SFX that the show's writing team have already started work on new episodes.

"We've got a plan for series two," he explained. "In fact, we're writing episode one of series two at the moment. But it's not yet greenlit and we're keeping our fingers crossed."

Discussing the show's chances of renewal, he added: "It's too early to say at the moment. It seems to be performing really well in terms of ratings."

Jones also claimed that the fifth instalment of the paranormal drama's first run is "probably the scariest episode of the series".

"It's a very dark story and totally amps up the scariness factor," he said. "It's really powerful, it's really scary, but it's also really moving."

He added that the six-part series, which stars Theo James and Will Young, will end with "a shocking twist".

"Episode six takes us into what's really been going on in the building [and] what's been happening to the girls that have gone missing over the years," he revealed. "It takes us much deeper into the history of Bedlam."

Bedlam airs on Mondays at 10pm on Sky Living.
