The second season of BBC One’s drama series The Village will premiere on Sunday August 10th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created by Peter Moffat, The Village tells the story of one village over the period of 100 years, told through the memories of Bert Middleton who has been a resident in the village for the full century that the series will cover.

The show’s second season opens in 1923 and examines life after the Great War. Now in a world of boom and bust, motor cars and the Charleston, the twenties bring a blast of energy and freedom to the village; as the outside world continues to break down barriers, bringing with it the big dramas that change will always generate. Cast additions for season two include Julian Sands (24) and Phoebe Dyneover (Waterloo Road).
