Australian website TV Tonight has shared an interview with BBC First director of television Natalie Edwards, who mentions Banished.

Production is also wrapping on the 7 part Australian-UK co production Banished in Manchester. It is expected to air early next year. “The exteriors were shot in Sydney and then they moved to Manchester,” Edgar explained. “I’m waiting with bated breath to see the first assembly, which should be quite soon. I haven’t seen a thing. But I have been checking with the UK daily asking ‘when, when, when?’ “Personally it’s such a thrill that the very first commission we got to do was a Jimmy McGovern series.”

Joseph and Russell Tovey tweeted about finishing filming on the series this week.
