Corrie bosses promise ‘drama & intrigue’ in new extended episodes
Coronation Street producers have promised the upcoming season will be filled with “drama, humour, twists and intrigue” in new hour-long time slots.
The changes were announced by ITV in January as Coronation Street is extended to hour-long episodes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8pm, while Emmerdale will move to a 7.30pm slot, directly clashing with BBC soap EastEnders.
Speaking about the upcoming storylines on Coronation Street, producer Iain MacLeod said: “It’s an exciting time for the show and these stories will propel us into the hour-long era with a bang and all the characteristic drama, humour, twists and intrigue that Corrie viewers have come to expect.
“We’ve got high-octane action with tragic heroine Abi, leading to life-and-death dilemmas.
“We’ve got riotous romantic intrigue for Daniel, with deliciously dastardly Daisy pulling out all the stops to keep her man.
“We’ve got the uber-complex Gary, who has finally turned his life around and is atoning for his sins with Kelly, only to find himself facing a final reckoning with the ghosts from his past.
“And we’ve got heart-stopping, high-stakes drama for Sarah, featuring a knife-edge showdown between Adam and his tormentor Lydia, which will leave you wondering which one’s the bad guy.
“All of this in one big serving per night. What’s not to love?”
