    Survivors is great, I highly recommend it–I watched the entire first series around Christmas. Need to catch up on series 2 but it’s on the massive pile of other stuff to watch that doesn’t affect my DVR free space. Do you happen to know if BBCA is going to air series 2 immediately following the first series?

    Kyle, Yes, BBC America will be playing Series 2 of Survivors beginning March 27th, immediately following Series 1.
