It looks like Shane Meadows' first foray into TV won't be his last. And it looks like the next show could be another This Is England, but this time set in the rave era of 1990.
In a Q&A following a screening of the first episode of the upcoming Channel 4 TV sequel to Meadows' Bafta winning This Is England at the Edinburgh TV festival, the director said he'd love to do another series.

Get ready for Woody, Shaun and Lol doing the big fish little fish on Channel 4 soon.
