After a hiatus, fans of the popular medical drama “Casualty” are eagerly awaiting its return to screens. Producer Jon Sen, who will be departing the show next year, has given a glimpse into what viewers can expect from the upcoming storylines.
In a recent interview with the Radio Times, Jon Sen revealed, “So my final episodes will go out in 2024 and we come back on towards the end of the year with a really exciting storyline, which involves Stevie grappling with the PTSD she feels from her upbringing and that dovetails perfectly with an ongoing issue with the hospital.”
He further described it as a thrilling narrative that will unfold over the next three months, culminating towards the end of the year.
While an exact return date hasn’t been confirmed, it is known that “Casualty” will be back on screens “later this year.” The show had been temporarily replaced by the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.
In addition to Jon Sen, other notable departures from the show are expected. Charlie Fairhead, a character who has been part of the series for 37 years, will bid farewell to Holby. Actress Kirsty Mitchell has hinted that it will be an emotional farewell for Charlie.
Furthermore, Nigel Harman, known for his role as Dr. Max Cristie, will also be leaving the show. When asked about Max and his on-screen daughter Jodie’s future, Jon Sen teased, “All I can say about that is that it’s worth tuning in for because the excitement of that father-daughter relationship really comes to a head, and we’re really excited about what the audience is going to think about him and his exit and his final story, and that all sits as part of that new chapter in the show.”
Fans of “Casualty” can look forward to the return of the series, and more details about the exact date will be announced in due course. The show airs on Saturdays on BBC One.
