COVENTRY drama Phoenix Rise will be getting a third and fourth series with the BBC confirming filming has started on 20 new episodes.

The hit series, which aired in March, has already gained critical acclaim for its first series with a second set to air in September.

Filming on a third and fourth series started this week in and around the city, including at the former Further Education campus, Henley College.

Phoenix Rise follows a group of six students who have been excluded from school as they return to mainstream education and form unlikely friendships.

The coming-of-age drama centres on the students who meet regularly in a disused school boiler room.

The majority of the cast from series one and two are returning to the show including ‘the boiler room six’ as well as a group of new young characters.

Creators Perrie Balthazar and Matt Evans said: “We couldn’t be more excited to return to Coventry and tell some new and groundbreaking stories for our gang of six outsiders.

“Expect joy, heartbreak, thrills and jokes as well as the explosive arrival of some new Phoenix Rise pupils, guaranteed to shake up the status quo.”
