Scottish actor David Tennant‘s new TV series “Around the World in 80 Days” has been renewed for a second season.
The series is adapted from the novel of the same name written by the French writer Jules Verne.
The first season of “Around the World in 80 Days” consists of eight episodes and centers around Phileas Fogg, as he places a £20,000 wager against the members of the Reform Club, betting that he can circumnavigate the world in only eighty days.
Simon Crawford Collins serves as executive producer along with Lionel Uzan, Pascal Breton, and Winnie Serite.
“Around the World in 80 Days” is set to premiere on January 2, 2022.
