It's time to fire up the Quattro...
Life on Mars is set to return to our screens 13 years after it originally aired.
The BBC series followed police officer Sam Tyler (John Simm) who was hit by a car in 2006 and then wakes up in 1973.
He ends up working alongside politically incorrect DCI Gene Hunt (Philip Glenister) in an era very different from his own.
The first two series were set in Manchester, and it saw a spin-off series Ashes to Ashes in 2008.
This series starred Keeley Hawes as Alex Drake, who is shot and wakes up in the 1980s.
Philip Glenister reprised his role as DCI Hunt aka ‘The Guv’ in the spin-off, which ran for three seasons.
And it looks like Life on Mars could be back for another round very soon.
Co-creator Matthew took to Twitter to tease the details during a Life on Mars live session, where he revealed the news.
He told fans, “We’d never make another Mars unless we really had something to say and could push the envelope all over again. Finally, we have something.”
He added, “There are bad things and there are monsters. These things are real.
“But to get to you they have to get through The Guv. And The Guv is putting his driving gloves on.”
The new series of Life on Mars is expected to take place in both London and Manchester.
The BBC is yet to confirm the new series, and we’re not sure of a potential air date yet.
He revealed: “Other roles I’ve played, in Prey and Trauma, are everymen, they’re normal guys and it wouldn’t be fair for anything else to happen to them.”
John added, “Life on Mars is very different, because there’s three years between that and Ashes to Ashes, which we could mine, it would be doable. It’s about time travel so you can get away with anything…”
We’re very excited to learn more about the new season!
