The first season of 'Marcella' reached a gripping conclusion on Tuesday (17 May) night, where the identity of the serial killer was finally revealed.

However, there were still plenty of loose ends that were not tied up, which have seemingly set the show up for another series.

Anna's co-star Nicholas Pinnock, who plays Marcella's husband Jason, also fuelled speculation of a second series during an appearance on 'This Morning' earlier this week.
