Earlier this month, Gatwa has revealed some special details about the upcoming season of the series.

“I can’t talk about it too much,” Gatwa said, peaking to Digital Spy and other press ahead of the BAFTA TV Awards. “This season, Eric returns back to his culture a lot more and I think those scenes were very special, just having a set where the majority of people were Black. “And it was really great and really powerful and represented Eric’s culture and his family. Those are always quite profound moments.” He admitted that it “feels good” that he gets to play a character that doesn’t usually get represented on such a big show.

The series is written and created by Nunn and produced by Eleven.
