With the release of season two, viewers were transported back to Farnon’s veterinary where they got an insight into the workings of a farm. Filled with drama, lies and love this season of All Creatures Great and Small could be an explosive one, however, the showrunner opened up about the future of the series and it’s looking uncertain.

At the screening of the Channel five series, the show’s writer Samuel West was in attendance and was asked about the future of All Creatures Great and Small.

On the topic of a potential third season, he revealed: “Yes, I think we are looking forward to a third series. I don’t think that’s a surprise.

“We were writing this series before the first series had gone out, so we weren’t really aware of how it would go down and what the reaction would be,” he explained.

Samuel disclosed: “When we started the show, we had in mind parts for these characters that took them across a number of series and initially it was kind of four series.”

The writer explained this version of the adaptation will play out at a slow pace in order which will give time for the plot to develop.

“There’s plenty more to come,” he said. “We’ll see what the stakeholders say,” he teased.

All Creatures Great and Small began as a series of books written by James Alfred Wight under the pen name of James Herriot, where he would detail his experience working at a veterinary clinic.

It was then first adapted into a film of the same name in 1975, then followed up by a sequel titled It shouldn’t Happen to a Vet in the following year.

Eventually, the BBC released a long-running series of the same name in 1978, which became a huge hit and aired until 1990.

Set in Yorkshire during 1937, a young James Harriot (played by Nicholas Ralph) moved from Glasgow to the Dales for some work.

While working under Siegfried Farnon (Samuel West) at his veterinary clinic, James also met Helen Alderson (Rachel Shenton).

In the series, Helen is the daughter of a farmer who was also an acquaintance of Siegried Farnon.

In season one of the Channel 5 adaption, Helen agreed to marry wealthy landowner Hugh Hulton (Matthew Lewis).

This left James completely heartbroken as he was falling in love with her, but during the Christmas Special episode she broke this off with Hugh.

This restored some hope in James, and by the season premiere, he had returned home and was visiting family in Glasgow.

The episode also saw Helen keeping to herself after breaking things off with Hugh.

Elsewhere in Yorkshire Tristan Farnon (Callum Woodhouse) had failed his exams to become a vet.

However his protective older brother Siegrfreid lied and told him he had passed because he didn’t want to keep nagging him.

Instead, he increased Tristan’s workload at the Veterinary and kept a close eye to ensure things were going right.

Fans will have to tune in every week to see if Helen and James will finally get together and also witness how Tristan will react when he discovers his brother had been lying to him.

All Creatures Great and Small season two airs on Thursdays on Channel 5 at 9pm.
