A second series of the heist drama Dal y Mellt will be shown on S4C in 2024.

The drama is produced by Vox Pictures and the team are currently filming in Bangor, Cardiff and London.

The series is based on Iwan 'Iwcs' Roberts' new novel 'Dal Arni', which is a sequel to his novel 'Dal y Mellt'.

The first series of Dal y Mellt was sold to Netflix under the title Rough Cut, the first Welsh language drama to be shown on the streaming service.

Gwion Morris Jones returns as the main character, Carbo, while Mici, Gronw, Antonia, Dafydd Aldo Meri Jên, Cidw, Jiffy and Julia re-join the exciting adventure.

A number of new characters will appear this time, with Matthew Gravelle portraying Blew.

Gwenllian Gravelle, S4C's Head of Scripted said:

"After the success of the first series on S4C and Netflix I am delighted to announce that the loveable gang will be back for another exciting adventure next year.

"The story continues with new characters and a new challenge facing the gang.

"This is an ambitious production that will have an audience here in Wales, but our intention is also to ensure that international audiences get to see the series."

Llŷr Morus, Head of Production at Vox Pictures said:

"Vox Pictures are delighted to be back in production with S4C for a second series of Dal y Mellt.

"It's great to build on the success of the first series and bring back our gang of infamous characters doing all the wrong things for all the right reasons.

"Another heist is hatched which will confound and astound whilst the gang seek fortune and love in equal measure."

The novel 'Dal Arni' by Iwan 'Iwcs' Roberts will be published by Y Lolfa in October.
