Apple Tree Yard series 2: The BBC drama is returning for an all-new series [BBC]
The series, adapted from Louise Doughty’s novel, aired on the channel earlier this year.
Apple Tree Yard told the story of Yvonne Carmichael and Mark Costley, who embarked on an affair after a chance meeting.
Their relationship led the pair down a dangerous path and resulted in a dramatic court case.
As the truth about both characters came out, fans were left reeling at the end of the series.
