A press release from Big Finish provides a host of details about the new releases:

Based on Terry Nation‘s BBC TV series which ran from 1975-77, Survivors is a post-apocalyptic drama concerning the plight of a group of people who have survived a worldwide plague. As they fight against the odds – and each other – to survive, you’re never quite sure who’s going to make it from one episode to the next

Due for release in November 2021 and February 2022 respectively, New Dawn 1 and New Dawn 2 find original TV series regulars Abby Grant (Carolyn Seymour) and Jenny Richards (Lucy Fleming) returning to an England devastated by disease, and facing a renewed fight for survival alongside faces old and new.

The world has ended. The pandemic crossed continents, sparing only a fraction of the global population. The survivors are now trying to pick up the pieces and rebuild society to create a new future. But with only a handful of towns and cities starting to rise from the ashes, and governance and law-making in a fragile, fledging state, everyone must start over. And the worst of human nature has survived along with the best…

The three adventures in Survivors: New Dawn 1 are as follows:

* Tethered by Andrew Smith

* My Generation by Katherine Armitage

* Behind You by Roland Moore

And the three tales in Survivors: New Dawn 2 are:

* Bad Blood by Lizbeth Myles

* When First We Practice to Deceive by Andrew Smith

* Last Stand by Roland Moore

Producer Emma Haigh said: “I’m so pleased Survivors is returning for another two box sets. In these stories we explore how communities and society rebuild after such life-changing experiences and look to a brighter future. And I couldn’t be happier to be back working with Carolyn and Lucy and the team.”

Carolyn Seymour said: “I love Abby! She’s so over the top but such a fantastic woman, and I love being back working with Luce. It’s like we’ve never not being doing this in a way, we slip right back into the same rhythm – it’s just heaven!”

Lucy Fleming added: “It’s just bliss – it’s like putting on a lovely old pair of shoes! Recording is just so much fun, and particularly with these scripts – they’ve moved the story forward a lot, so the characters and the circumstances have changed.”

“It’s a wonderful position to be in, to play the same character years and years later from when you first played it – and to have not aged at all!”
