Our House: Martin Compston rules out series 2 over fears about 'bad sequel'

Our House lead star Martin Compston has admitted the show will not be returning for a second series for a ‘bad sequel’.

The ITV series came to a dramatic end this week with viewers finally learning the truth about the secrets of the Lawsons’ family home. 

Based on the book by Louise Candlish, the thriller tells the story of Fiona Lawson (Tuppence Middleton) who arrives home to see another family moving into her home.

The issue is she has no idea who they are – and her house has never been up for sale – so as she struggles to get hold of estranged husband Bram (Martin), it becomes clear the secrets and lies have only just begun.

The ITV drama had kept viewers gripped as they embarked on the rollercoaster journey of married couple Fi and Bram, who live together in the mysterious blue house with their children – until he has an affair with their mutual friend Merle (Weruche Opia).

From then, scandals, lies and secrets unfold with the final episode leaving viewers with a satisfying conclusion as the ending was explained amidst the season’s twists and turns.

While some may be desperate for more, Line of Duty star Martin has revealed exclusively to Metro.co.uk that the series was a ‘one-off’ and he doesn’t want to return with a ‘bad sequel’.

‘Made a good show and let’s leave it at that.’

Speaking about how some shows are best left alone as one-offs, Martin added: ‘Definitely, Our House is definitely in that category as well.

‘And I think by the end people will realise why.’

Our House is available to watch on ITV Hub.
