'Suspects' will return for a second series.
The unscripted crime drama starring Fay Ripley (Detective Inspector Martha Bellamy), Damien Molony (Detective Sergeant Jack Weston) and Clare-Hope Ashitey (Detective Constable Charlotte 'Charlie' Steele) is set in London and follows three detectives as they investigate the circumstances surrounding a particular crime.
The series - which sees the actors improvise all of their dialogue rather than rely on a script - has proven hugely popular with viewers and consequently Channel 5 bosses have agreed to have the show back in the autumn with new episodes for a second series, and it has also been re-commissioned for 2015.
Ben Frow, Channel 5's director of programmes, said: "'Suspects' has been an incredible critical success for Channel 5, and praised for its innovative and game-changing approach to procedural drama. We're thrilled by the reaction and are excited about commissioning a further series for later in the year."
Paul Marquess, managing director of production company Newman Street, added: "'Suspects' is the most exciting show I've ever made, so we can't wait to get back into production and we're delighted to be working with Ben and Greg Barnett again."
