All Creatures Great And Small made its debut on Channel 5 in the UK earlier in 2020 and the six-part show has so far been a hit with viewers. The 2020 adaptation of the books by Yorkshire vet Alf Wight sees Nicholas Ralph starring as animal expert James Herriot. The series is made up of six episodes and the fifth episode, titled All's Fair, is due to air tonight (September 29). The creators of the series spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk and other media about the potential for season two.
All Creatures Great And Small season one will be wrapping up in early October and fans are keen to see whether the story will continue for another season.
Viewers have loved spending their evenings watching the feel-good series, although the previous episode, titled A Tricki Case, was Dame Diana Rigg's last TV appearance before she died.
Fans felt emotional watching the episode, following the news that she had died on September 10 from cancer.
Colin Callender, executive producer for the series, said he was already planning for a second season and he revealed more about the show's future.

He said: "We are hoping to get back in the New Year for a second season. Ben [Vanstone] has already said he wants a second season.
"We all hope this will become a regular part of the Channel 5 schedule and we are using this time to develop the next season."
With this in mind, fans can only hope the viewing figures were successful enough for Channel 5 to renew the series.
The cast have all explained how they would love for their characters to return and continue the story, which was inspired by Wight's books.
Wight, who wrote under the pen name James Herriot, and his family assisted the cast in the creation of the series, which depicted his life.
