Atlantis has a return date for its second series, the BBC has announced.

The fantasy drama series will be back for a second run on November 15, according to a tweet from BBC One.

It read: “#Atlantis returns to @BBCOne on Saturday 15th November. Watch the first teaser,” with a link to a trailer.

A second tweet read: “Pythagoras, Jason and Hercules – we’ve missed you. #Atlantis returns. Saturday 15th November,” and included a promotional shot of Robert Emms as Pythagoras, Jack Donnelly as Jason and Mark Addy as Hercules.

Atlantis is based on Greek mythology and also stars Aiysha Hart, Sarah Parish, Alexander Siddig and Juliet Stevenson, with Hollyoaks and The Fall star Emmett J Scanlan joining the cast for the new series.

Jemima Rooper, who plays Medusa, recently told Digital Spy of what was to come: “It seems to be that it’s taking a more adult turn, and it’s getting darker. All the stakes are bigger.”
