Save Me follows the life of Nelly Rowe (played by Lennie), a down and out man who is brutally taken down by police who accuse him of kidnapping 13-year-old Jody McGory (Indeyarna Donaldson-Holness).
The teenager turns out to be his long-lost daughter who he shares with high-flying Claire McGory (Suranne Jones).
However, the real story is not that of a kidnapping plot, but that of Nelly desperately trying to clear his name and find Jody before it’s too late.
Sky viewers have been enjoying Save Me and now The Walking Dead’s Lennie, who wrote the show, has some good news for fans.
Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, the 52-year-old revealed he had always intended for the story to continue.
When asked if people would be happy with the ending to the series, Lennie explained: “People will have to watch and tell me.
“But when Ann Mensa [Sky controller] asked if I had an idea for a television series, was really if I had an idea for a returning television series and this is my idea.
“Whatever happens at the end of the series, it was always my intention for it to be a returning series.”
When asked what was next for the Morgan Jones star, Lennie said: “I will hopefully get to do some more of this story with these characters.”
It seems that fans can expect more Save Me in the future, especially given the positive reviews the show has received.
Lennie also explained that now is the perfect time for him to branch out into more writing projects.
When asked why he chose now to get involved with the production side of television considering how busy he must be with the Fear The Walking Dead crossover he is now part of, his answer was resolute.
“Why now? Because my kids went to university on one level,” he laughed.
Lennie added: “And on another, because I act, because I’ve been relatively successful, the things I write end up being the things I can’t not write.
“If I’m going to commit myself to the solitary pursuit of writing, I have to be able to commit and I have to just write it.”
Save Me continues next Wednesday on Sky Atlantic. The full box set is also available on SkyGo and Now TV.
