Is there a Passenger series 2?

It is currently unknown whether there will be a second series of Passenger, however ITV have hinted that the show may make a return in the future.

Taking to X, formally known as Twitter, one viewer asked: "6 episodes and no answers. @ITV please tell me there is a Series 2? #Passenger"

To which ITV's X account cheekily replied: "We couldn’t possibly say…#Passenger."

While ITV haven't officially confirmed a second series of the show, we're taking this as a strong hint that it will be back soon!

The final episode of Passenger was left on a cliff-hanger after Ali and Nish were inserted into the game and offered the chance to win a 'life-changing prize' or die.

The show then ends with the fate of the villagers unknown, leading many fans to take to social media to question whether the series would be coming back.

One user wrote: "The ending… i wasn’t expecting anything like that. we need season 2 immediately !! don’t leave me on this cliff hanger."

Another added: "Finally finished watching #Passenger tonight and boy I wasn’t expecting that ending... still, could that possibly leave an opening to reprise my role alongside the brilliant @_DanielRyan Rowan Robinson & @NatalieGavin for a 2nd series ?!!? Fingers crossed."

With a third stating: "After watching the first 2 eps last week and wondering whether to carry on, I binged the next 4. I need series 2 asap please! #Passenger."
