Life On Mars returns @ 30 October 2006 12:55 PM
The creative team behind BBC One hit drama 'Life on Mars' have today revealed that the second series, which is due to air in early 2007, will mark the thrilling finale of the smash hit show.

Fans of the show will learn the truth about time-travelling DI Sam Tyler (John Simm) and how he came to be stuck in 1973.

Matthew Graham writer and co-creator said: "We decided that Sam's journey should have a finite lifespan and a clear-cut ending and we feel that we have now reached that point after two series; so, although it is sad that we have just finished filming Sam's final scenes, it's also been an incredibly exciting few days!"

Executive Producer Claire Parker says: "We were blown away by the reaction to the first series and of course it was tempting to go beyond two series, but we felt strongly that Sam's story reaches its natural and explosive climax after two. Hopefully, we will leave the audience wanting more yet having fond memories of Life on Mars for years to come."

Series two is directed by SJ Clarkson, Richard Clark and Andrew Gunn and the producer is Cameron Roach (Footballers' Wives).

Series two of Life on Mars is due to transmit on BBC ONE in the New Year.
