Sky's new science-fiction drama Intergalactic has just launched, airing Friday nights at 9pm or available in full already to stream.

It might be a bit too soon for Sky to decide on whether it wants to give the show a second series, but the cast is definitely up for it.

"There's definitely, definitely a longer journey to go on with these guys," Line of Duty star Craig Parkinson exclusively told Digital Spy. In Intergalactic he plays the role of Dr Benedict Lee, Director of the Commonworld.

"I think because there will be such an emotional investment from the audience in all these layered characters for the weeks, yeah, there's definitely more avenues to explore."

A Discovery of Witches' Savannah Steyn, who plays disgraced cop turned convict pilot, agrees, stating: "I want to know what happens next.

"All of the characters have definitely gone on massive journeys, emotionally, spiritually, physically. Some of them change into completely different people as to what you see in the beginning."

The first series of the show was meant to be 10 episodes long, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic it had to be cut down to eight episodes, with storylines altered.

Even if a full second series doesn't happen, fellow cast member Imogen Daines (who plays Verona) told Radio Times that she hopes they at least get to finish off the character arcs planned for the full 10-episode series.

Intergalactic is available to stream in full on Sky One and NOW.
