Sky has ordered a sixth series of Ross Kemp: Extreme World
The show's fifth series recently concluded on Sky1. Episodes featured former EastEnders actor Kemp investigating the ivory trade in Mozambique, overseeing the production of cocaine in Columbia, and visiting rebel groups fighting ISIS in Syria.
Series six will see the Bafta-winning documentary-maker explore migrant smuggling, the War on Drugs, and violent extremism in Libya, the US, and the UK.
Executive Producer Tom Sheahan, of Freshwater Films, said: “We’re thrilled to have the greenlight for series six of Extreme World.
Tackling these important and gritty subjects can be challenging but we have an incredibly talented team who are committed to getting the access and telling the stories that Ross has become known for.”
Earlier this year, Kemp made his first appearance in EastEnders in 10 years, where he returned as Grant Mitchell. He has since hinted that he would like to continue acting alongside his journalistic ventures. He made his debut on the classic soap in 1990.
