All Creatures Great and Small season 2 release date

Channel 5 is still to announce when the second series of All Creatures Great and Small will air. But we’re hopeful of an autumn 2021 release date.

What’s the plot?

Well the story will pick up from the Christmas special which opened on Christmas Eve. Poor James was in bits as Helen prepared to get married to Hugh. However as Rachel Shenton, who plays Helen, revealed, the farmer was having doubts about her marriage.

“It’s emotional because it’s Christmas Eve and the night before her wedding and she’s uncertain. I don’t think she thought a proposal was around the corner and it blindsided her. Now, with everyone at the party asking about her plans, she’s overwhelmed.”

Helen and James ended up being trapped together on a remote farm as a thick fog rested over the Dales. James wrestled with telling Helen his true feelings but decided against it.

On Christmas Day James decided to head home, but upon reaching a crossroads he suddenly decided to head back. When James arrived, he found out that Helen didn’t go through with the wedding.

But does this mean Helen and James will actually get together in series 2? Or will Helen be so emotionally confused she decides she doesn’t want another relationship so soon? And how will Hugh react to all this?!
