Michaela Coel turned heads with her impressive (but unfortunately snubbed by the Golden Globes) 2020 series I May Destroy You, and she's finally making a follow-up show.

The show was announced by Deadline, but details are incredibly scarce. We know that the show is being developed for the BBC and it's in its earliest stages. Further, the BBC's Piers Wenger suggested their could be some ties to Coel's past work, which also includes the show Chewing Gum.

"It's truly in Michaela's head and it's not for me to second guess that too much at this point. It's at relatively early stages, but I wanted to let the fans of I May Destroy You know that there is a new show coming along," he said. 

"What relationship that show will have with the original series, [is for Michaela to decide]. There's a relationship between Chewing Gum and I May Destroy You. There's a through line to her thinking. I suspect there may be elements [of I May Destroy You] but it's really too early to say anything specific."

I May Destroy You was a BBC co-production with HBO.
