"Two Thousand Acres of Sky" will return

IT'S OFFICIAL - popular drama series "Two Thousand Acres of Sky" will return to the nation's television screens for a third series.

The "Free Press" revealed a fortnight ago that negotiations were taking place which, when concluded, would see Michelle Collins and the rest of the cast return to Rhins.

At the time, both the BBC and programme makers Zenith Entertainments refused to confirm that a third series was about to be commissioned.

But, this week, the news everyone connected with the show was hoping for was announced.

A spokesman for the BBC told the "Free Press"

"A third series of the BBC1 drama 'Two Thousand Acres of Sky' has now been given the green light".

Barbara McKissack, head of BBC Scotland Drama, added

"We are thrilled that the show will return for a third series.

"It has proven extremely popular with viewers not only in the UK but also across the world, so we are delighted to be able to bring them more stories form the island of Ronansay".

The fictional Scottish island of Ronansay is, of course, the real-life village of Portlogan.

And the South Rhins village - and, indeed, the whole of Wigtownshire - is now set to reap the financial rewards which the influx of cast and crew members bring.
