The Greek island of Corfu is to again host a popular U.K. drama based on the life of author Gerald Durrell.

Broadcaster ITV has recommissioned another series of The Durrells, an award-winning drama based on a trilogy of books written by Durrell when his family lived on the Ionian island in the 1930s.
