Is The Ipcress File Season 2 Confirmed?

The Ipcress File season 2 hasn’t been confirmed yet and it’s not clear what the future holds for the series.  

The Ipcress File Season 2 Release Date!

The release date of Ipcress File Season 2 has not been released officially yet. However, considering the finale episode of the previous season, we might expect there are a lot of things the storyline can proceed with. 

Speaking about the upcoming season, Lucy Boynton in an interview stated: “I hope so. I think there is still so much to explore. Especially in that era, with the times changing so drastically and so quickly. And meeting these characters as young as they are with the vibrancy with which they are experiencing this world.”

She added, “Add to that the world of espionage and the behind-the-curtain experience of an era we all look to and reference so often. It’s unendingly fascinating.”

Adding a bit of humour to the conversation, Joe Cole played it a little more coyly though, and said: “Who knows? Big shoes to fill. So let’s see how it goes down.” 

This conversation in a way indicates there would be a second season. So, if it happens, we imagine we could expect to see it in early 2023

Remark: we’re speculating for now.
