The second season of Hold The Sunset will premiere on BBC One on Friday August 2nd at 9pm, it has been announced.
Hold The Sunset tells the story of Phil and Edith, who are set to marry, up sticks and move abroad to the sunshine. But then Edith’s 50 year old son Roger announces that he’s left his wife, his kids and his good job at the bank, and come home in an attempt to find his lost happiness again. And in a blink, to Edith’s dismay and Phil’s fury, all dreams are on hold.
