BBC Two’s Uncanny Renewed


Uncanny, which debuted on BBC Two and iPlayer last year, is set to return for a second season.

The series, made by BBC Studios Specialist Factual Productions and based on the hit BBC Radio 4 podcast of the same name, sees writer and broadcaster Danny Robins explore paranormal cases. Viewers are invited to send in their own theories about the cases or provide information that may move the investigations forward.

Robins said: “Uncanny is coming back to haunt your screens again! I’ve been blown away and moved by the response to our first season, and I’m grateful to the BBC for supporting us in making something that feels really different to anything else out there. It was a thrill to see fans of the podcast loving it but also to welcome a whole new audience. What I love about Uncanny is that, whether you’re Team Believer, Team Sceptic or Team Not Sure, you can enjoy the mystery of these stories in your own way. I can’t wait to bring you another set of brand-new cases to investigate. Get ready to meet some truly compelling witnesses telling you about some terrifyingly extraordinary events. But are they genuinely paranormal? Let’s see… but I can tell you, they are definitely bloody scary.”

Jack Bootle, the BBC’s head of commissioning for specialist factual television, added: “Uncanny was a huge success on BBC Two and iPlayer last year. Danny is a master storyteller, and I can’t wait to hear more about the spine-chilling new cases he’s investigating. I’m delighted the series is returning to our screens—and our nightmares—soon.”

Alan Holland, head of specialist factual productions at BBC Studios, commented: “We’re thrilled to be making another series of Uncanny with Danny. We were absolutely blown away by the theories and interaction from viewers last series and can’t wait to hear even more from them this time around. The direction of the series will be well and truly in their hands to influence!”
