In unbelievably good news of the day, TORCHWOOD is coming back in the Summer of 2011 with John Barrowman (Capt. Jack) and Eve Myles (Gwen) returning along with some new faces reflecting the more international scope of the series.
Now here’s the crazy thing, this time it’s Starz that will debut the 10-episodes new series in the US, while BBC One will debut it in the UK and BBC Worldwide will distribute the show outside the U.S. This is a co-production between Starz, BBC Cymru Wales and BBC Worldwide.
Russell T Davies and BBC Worldwide Productions’ SVP Scripted Julie Gardner return as executive producers, with Davies also serving as show-runner for the new Torchwood.
“Russell, Jane and Julie came to us with a compelling vision for the evolution of the ‘Torchwood’ saga that really takes the story into whole new areas,” added Carmi Zlotnik, Managing Director of Starz Media the production and development division of Starz. “The compelling story and characters this trio created provide a strong template for driving this narrative in exciting ways.”
Well, I’m beyond excited, after the amazing Torchwood: Children of Earth episodes, it has taken way too long for us to get more Torchwood.
