ITV series "The Good Karma Hospital" will still run for another season in 2018. This after the series' first season finale was aired on Sunday, March 12.
According to UnrealityTV, the last episode of the first season made viewers emotional since Dr. Ruby Walker was on a dilemma whether to stay in India or go back home in the UK. The main character's decision would be a big factor in determining if the show will still be up for another season. It was indeed good karma for the show's fans as it ended with Dr. Walker deciding to stay.
Senior Drama Commissioner for ITV Victor Fea applauded "The Good Karma Hospital" creator Dan Sefton, the cast and Tiger Aspect Drama for the success of the first season of the series. "We're very excited about developing a second series of The Good Karma Hospital. It's brought the warmth, colour and vibrancy of India to our wintry Sunday nights," the ITV executive said.
"The Good Karma Hospital" follows the life of Ruby Walker, a junior doctor, portrayed by Amrita Acharia, who left her home in the UK and went to Southern India to look for a job and get over her heartbreak. This eventually led her to the lowly cottage hospital run by English ex-pat Lydia Fonseca portrayed by Amanda Redman.
The series also stars Neil Morrissey, James Floyd, Darshan Jariwalla, Sagar Radia and Nimmi Harasagama who will be returning for the second season along with Acharia and Redman for Season 2. Reaching about 6.7 million audiences, as reported in Digital Spy, the series truly has a good standing in ITV. Additional cast members are also being looked into for the next season. Filming of the second season was set to start in August 2017.
