Survivors returns for a second series in 2010, picking up moments after the thrilling cliff-hanger to series 1. Abby and her mismatched Family of Survivors are in disarray, now struggling not just against the difficulties of day to day life amidst the ruins of the post-virus apocalypse, but also against the threat of other emerging communities and the machinations of the sinister Lab.

Set in the present day, Survivors is a BBC drama series that focuses on the world in the aftermath of a devastating virus which wipes out most of the planet's population. Deprived of traditional 21st Century comforts - electricity; clean running water; advanced technology - the resilient group of survivors at the heart of the series face terrible and unexpected dangers. With no society, no police and no law and order, they now must struggle to find food and water under the ever present and deadly threat of other survivors.

Returning for this high octane second series are Abby (Julie Graham), a devoted mother with a missing son; Greg (Paterson Joseph), a loner, hiding the pain of his past; Anya (Zoe Tapper), a doctor who has seen too much; Al (Phillip Rhys), a playboy who becomes surrogate father to young and headstrong Najid (Chahak Patel); Sarah (Robyn Addison), a hedonist used to getting her own way; and Tom Price (Max Beesley) - handsome, dangerous and a high security prisoner before the virus hit.
