The first series of BBC's remarkable drama Prisoner's Wives attracted 5 million viewers, easily garnering it a green light for a second go-around.


Series 2 airs tonight @9PM on BBC1.


Added to the cast this season are actors Karla Crome and Osi Okerafor.

Crome has been very busy within the past few years, with starring roles in programs such as Hit & Miss, Misfits, and Lightfields.  And that trend continues in her role on Prisoner's Wives, in which she plays Aisling O'Connor, the feisty daughter of roguish repeat offender Brendan O'Connor (Owen Roe).

From BBC.co.uk:

"Gutsy, cheerful and honest, Aisling is the loyal prisoners’ daughter of Brendan, a petty criminal and repeat offender.

Old beyond her years and recently engaged to be married, Aisling craves the stability her irrepressible but feckless father never gave her.

Her reliable fiancée is the polar opposite of her Dad, and for now, Aisling thinks he is everything she wants."


Okerafor will play the role of character Ben Ballo.

Sadly, but not surprisingly, it's been reported that a U.S. version of the series is currently in production at the Lifetime ChannelThis is so not necessary.
