EastEnders’ Kat And Alfie Moon TV Spin-Off Gets Prime Time BBC Slot
Redwater, featuring Albert Square characters Kat and Alfie Moon – played by Jessie Wallace and Shane Ritchie, below – will be a six-part drama.
Filmed in Ireland, it will be based around Kat’s search for her longlost son, which leads the couple to the remote fishing village of Redwater.
It was originally intended as a one-series project but BBC bosses were so impressed with the way filming has gone that they have given the green-light for it to return in extended form in a primetime 9pm slot.
A BBC source told The Sun: “Everyone thought Redwater would be just a one-off, but plans are being drawn up for it to return once the six episodes are done.
“There are high hopes that it will become a brilliant new long-running series.
“Apart from Kat and Alfie there are numerous characters living in this lovely village who all have stories to tell.”
