World on Fire episode seven airs tonight (Sunday, November 10) at 9pm on BBC One. After the episode has aired on TV, the entire series will be available to stream and download via the BBC iPlayer. Tonight, Harry (played by Jonah Hauer-King) finds himself embarking on his first mission as part of the Special Operations Executive and Kasia (Zofia Wichłacz) finds her life in danger at the hands of the Nazi’s. The Second World War spanned six years, ending on September 2, 1945, so can viewers expect more World on Fire in the future?
Will there be another series of World on Fire?
Show creator Peter Bowker and one of the show’s directors Adam Smith have spoken about continuing World on Fire for another season – and potentially many more.
The majority of the cast also told Express.co.uk they would love to reprise their roles in future seasons.
World on Fire season one begins in September 1939, with the outbreak of the First World War.
The finale episode of season one ends in approximately August 1940, with the Battle of Britain well underway.

The wider plan for the show is to conclude with the end of the war in 1945, which means World on Fire could potentially return for five more seasons.
World on Fire season two, if given the green light, will take place in 1940 and could feature events such as The Blitz, The war in Africa and Operation Barbarossa.
For now, The BBC has not confirmed whether there will be another series of war drama.
Show creator Peter Bowker told Express.co.uk: “Yes. There’s more war, there’s more years. It’s possible.”
Director Adam Smith added: “There is a vision for five, one for each year of the war. The first season goes from August 1939 until August 1940.”

World on Fire features a star-studded cast including Sean Bean, Helen Hunt and Lesley Manville.
The series also features an international cast including British, Polish, German and French actors.
If World on Fire season two was given the green light, Julia Brown should alongside Yrsa Daley-Ward Blake Harrison as Stan Radding, Jonah Hauer-King, Ewan Mitchell, Parker Sawyers, Brian J. Smith, Zofia Wichłacz, Victoria Mayer, Mateusz Więcławek and Johannes Zeiler.
Sean Bean who plays Douglas Bennett confirmed to Express.co.uk he would return for a second series.
He said: “Yes [to series two]. It’s fascinating to think people will be interested to see how it unfolds.
“Because we only get to create the outbreak of war and the first year, so it would be something that will be interesting, continuing these people. There’s a great story to it.”

Zofia Wichłacz who portrays Kasia said and Jonah Hauer-King who stars as Harry also told Express.co.uk they would return.
Wichłacz said: “Yes, I would definitely love to do it. It depends on the story, right?
“The story of the character if it is interesting and if it is a challenge for you as an actor and you can grow then why not. You never know.”
Although the cast and crew are hopeful to return for another series, the renewal of World On Fire of the show will also depend on the show’s ratings.
Luckily, World on Fire has received high praise from fans and critics with every episode and has been watched by more than five million viewers each week according to the BBC, so the future is looking positive.
If World on Fire season two is given the green light, fans can expect the show to arrive in late 2021.
The first season took almost two years to create and film, so it is likely season two will follow suit.
