I have never watched a minute of this show, but it’s certainly very popular, as it’s been recommissioned for a fifth series. Waterloo Road covers stories in and around a school, including both the adults and the teens attending. For the new series, the school is being merged with another, which will no doubt create a raft of new story arcs and characters.
Eva Pope returns, and although there are no confirmations as yet, it looks like Angela Griffin and Denise Welch will both be back on our screens as well, along with other regulars.
Controller of BBC Drama Commissioning, Ben Stephenson says:
Waterloo Road consistently delivers an entertaining mix of bold characters, powerful issues and compelling stories to a mainstream audience and plays a vital role delivering younger, more diverse audiences to the BBC, I look forward to it returning for a fifth series later this year.
