Netflix ‘looking to adapt One Day sequel’

Netflix is reportedly looking to produce a follow-up to 'One Day'.

One Day

Netflix is reportedly in talks to adapt a ‘One Day’ follow-up.

The romantic drama series, based on 57-year-old writer David Nicholls' 2009 novel of the same name, has been a smash-hit for Netflix, watched by 15.2 million people since its release on 8 February – and the streamer is now said to be looking to adapt the author’s new book, ‘You Are Here’, which is set for release on 23 April.

An industry insider told the Daily Mirror: “Netflix bosses knew they were on to a winner with ‘One Day’.

“They are in the process of signing a new deal for David’s next release, which promises to be just as much of a tear jerker.”

‘One Day’ stars Ambika Mod, 28, and Leo Woodall, 27, as Emma Morley and Dexter Mayhew, and follows the pair as their relationship develops after meeting for the first time on their final day at the University of Edinburgh in 1988.

Despite the show being incredibly successful, Ambika admitted she was initially reluctant agreeing to play Emma, as the ‘This Is Going To Hurt’ actress “didn’t see” herself in the role.

She told Netflix: “I just didn’t see myself in that role, to be honest. It took well into the shoot for me to convince myself that it was the right call for me to be there doing that.”

However, Ambika emphasised that she had a “change of heart happened very suddenly” about appearing in the project once Leo was cast as Dexter.

She added: “I was waiting for a while to find out who my Dexter would be, and was very happy when it was Leo.”
