Suranne Jones admits she may be too busy for a Doctor Foster season 3
Suranne Jones is unsure whether she’ll have time to film a third season of Doctor Foster.
Having played GP Gemma Foster for two successful series, fans are desperate to know whether Suranne will be starring in a third instalment of the hit BBC drama.
However, appearing on This Morning today, the actress worried she might not be able to commit to another six episodes after landing other serious acting roles.
The actress came on the ITV show to promote her new Sky Atlantic series Save Me, but hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield first had to address the question on everyone’s lips.
Asked if she’d be partaking in a season three, Suranne replied: “I don’t know. With Save Me also, there’s room for more, Lennie has been saying he’d like to make a second one. Then I’m doing Gentleman Jack for BBC after finishing Frozen. It’s a time thing.”
The star went on to explain how she has begun to dread the moment a good script lands on her doorstep. She said: “I’d finished Doctor Foster 2 and I planned a trip to LA and then I wasn’t going to do anything – I was going to be family orientated – but then this script came up and Lennie [James] wrote to me and Nick Murphy wrote to me as well.
“First of all my husband rolls his eyes and then he goes, ‘You’re doing it aren’t you?’ and I’m like ‘…yeah’.”
Save Me begins Wednesday (February 28) at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.
