BBC One and BBC America have announced they are commissioning Atlantis for a second series.

Atlantis is the biggest new Saturday night drama series launch across all channels since 2006, even up on the launch of hit show Merlin. Across the first three episodes, the show has averaged a consolidated audience of 6.7million, and is averaging 7.4m viewers in Live+7*. The top performance to date has been for episode one which pulled in a Live +7* audience of 8.4 million viewers.

Charlotte Moore, Controller, BBC One, says: “Atlantis delivers original British drama with the kind of scale and ambition that we've come to expect from the cinema. It feels very much at home on Saturday nights on BBC One, it's been wonderful to watch Howard and the team create a whole new world, brilliantly inspired by Greek mythology which is proving a hit with all the family and a second series is richly deserved." Ben Stephenson, Controller BBC Commissioning, said: “Atlantis has quickly made its mark and established itself as the new weekly fantasy drama fix for all the family on BBC One. The show is packed with creative ambition which is a credit to the team involved and a second series will ensure the show builds and grows with the audience.”
