If you’ve been watching the EastEnders web spin-off show E20 then you’ll be happy to know that it’s been given the go-ahead for a second season.

Focusing on new characters Zsa Zsa, Fatboy, Mercy and Leon, E20 was an attempt to reach new and younger viewers by showcasing fresh young talent.

According to reports in The Stage, the new series will be ten episodes long at 14 minutes each and will be penned by the same group of young writers that were responsible for the first series.

Simon Nelson, the BBC Vision controller of portfolio and multiplatform, said in a statement that, “E20 was one of the most ambitious and successful multiplatform projects we’ve commissioned.

It was brilliantly realised by the EastEnders team, introduced new writing and acting talent and threaded audiences and plotlines between the main and spin-off shows. We had no hesitation in commissioning another series, something which will delight the 17,000 fans who’ve been calling for more episodes on the E20 Facebook page.?
