ITV has ordered a second series of its drama Kidnap and Ransom.
The programme, which premiered in January, stars Trevor Eve as international hostage negotiator Dominic King.
The cast for the first series also included Helen Baxendale, John Hannah, Emma Fielding, Natasha Little and Rebekah Nathan.
The three new episodes will focus on Dominic trying to save a group of tourists who are taken hostage in India. Dominic is forced to battle against the Indian police and work out what the kidnappers want.
As well as starring in the show, Eve will executive produce through his company Projector Pictures.
"I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of producing the first series of Kidnap and Ransom for ITV and bringing Dominic King to life," he said. "On behalf of Projector Pictures we're delighted we've been given a second series."
Meanwhile, ITV's director of drama commissioning Laura Mackie said: "Trevor is a fantastic screen actor and really made the character of Dominic King his own. The second series with its plot twists and turns promises to be as unpredictable and absorbing as the first."
Filming for the new episodes of Kidnap and Ransom will begin in South Africa in September.
