Before We Die actor Patrick Gibson has spoken about the possibility of a second season for the crime drama, teasing that the show "could develop".

The OA and Tolkien star Gibson plays a man named Christian Radic, who gets involved with the local mafia, in the Channel 4 drama, which is based on the Swedish show of the same name.

Meanwhile, his police officer mother DI Hannah Laing (Scott & Bailey and Fate: The Winx Saga star Lesley Sharp) finds her own life taking a dark turn due to Christian's new associations and a horrific incident involving her married lover, Sean Hardacre (Coronation Street and Emmerdale star Bill Ward).

Every episode of the drama is now available to watch on All 4, so if you've already binged the lot, you might be wondering whether we'll get to see what happens next.

During an exclusive interview with Digital Spy, actor Gibson revealed that he'd "love" to make another run of episodes to explore the show's characters more.

"There's no plot lines that are left unanswered necessarily, but the show ends on – like yeah absolutely [there could be] more, it could develop," he said.

"I would love to (make a second season), I think even just to see... because for every character there's an emotional arc that happens where they're not the same person as they are at the start of the show...

"[To] pick that up and see a whole other few episodes with them would be really cool... Hopefully!"

The Swedish version of the show has so far had two seasons, so it doesn't seem beyond the realms of possibility that the British incarnation could also get another batch of episodes.

Gibson also told Digital Spy that the ending of the series was "the most challenging part of shooting", adding that it "definitely" feels like a satisfying ending to the run of episodes.

Before We Die also stars Snow White and the Huntsman actor Vincent Regan, former EastEnders star Rebecca Scroggs and It's A Sin actor Steve Toussaint.

Before We Die airs on Wednesdays at 9pm on Channel 4 and the whole series is available as a box set on All 4.
