Great news, Ed Westwick fans! The BBC has officially renewed White Gold for a second season!
The second season will be comprised of six episodes and will reunite Westwick with his season one co-stars and The Inbetweeners alums James Buckley and Joe Thomas.
Buckley himself took to Twitter to share the good news with fans of the series on the night of the season 1 finale.
“Last episodes of white gold tonight. But don’t worry…series 2 has officially been announced,” tweeted Buckley.
Meanwhile, series creator Damon Beesley released a statement saying he was “honored” that the BBC had decided to give White Gold a second season.
“It’s both an honor and a pleasure to be working with the BBC again on a second series of White Gold. I like to think of it as selling them a series two conservatory to go with their series one patio doors,” said Beesley, as reported by DigitalSpy.
The showrunner’s joke near the end of his statement is a reference to Westwick’s character Vincent, an incredibly charismatic salesman with very little morals with regards to what he must do to get prospective clients to sign on the dotted line.
Fans who enjoyed the way Vincent and his pals Martin and Brian swindled unsuspecting clients in season 1 will surely love what the big change the series has in store come season 2.
According to BBC comedy commissioner, Shane Allen, the trio is set to take their act abroad when the series returns.
“In series two, the swindles spread abroad to cover the Spanish timeshare apartment gold rush,” teased Allen.
