There have been talks of a possible sequel with ORIENTAL STREET MURDER.
I’ve had a countless number of emails and messages asking what happened after Tracey was taken away, and if I could continue the story.

I’ve thought about it long and hard, often changing my mind about it because I don’t want to ruin the story.
So, this is how it’s going to go:
If people really do want to see what happens next, then yes, I’ll write a sequal and propose it to the cast which would be involved. It wouldn’t be a series – it’d be a short-film, and really would tie up the story in a akward bow.

So please leave a comment below if you really would like to see what happens to Tracey….

will she survive prison? will she avoid prison? will she escape…?

UPDATE: Sequel Confirmed Today (11/6)

Meredith has gladly agreed to a sequel to ORIENTAL STREET MURDER!
This decision came on the same day the series was featured in North Taranaki’s Midweek newspaper.
The working title for the short-film sequel is “OSM: TRACEY’S BACK” and the original crew will be returning. A sequel to the series was written a few weeks ago, with the main cast member and original crew being confirmed to return this morning.
Expect it in August!

    I think it would be a great idea, of course I’m biased, but what my main worry is the time factor. In an ideal world there would be no hassles.

    I really enjoyed the original series, and would love to see a sequel. What about a trial for the killer? (We never got that with the Joey storyline). Perhaps use the Tracy Barlow one from Coro Street for a bit of inspiration. Maybe some of the victims’ families could do an “impact statement”, which could certainly bring out the emotion you’re after. That’s one idea, anyway. But whatever you decide on, I hope to see it some time later this year! πŸ™‚

    I think a sequel to the series sounds like an awesome idea and am keen to see it after it’s completed.

    Please, please have a sequal. Shorters had an abrupt ending. I want to see what could have happened if he had not stepped off the building

    Meredith today agreed to bring Tracey back for a sequel!

    Of course you must have a sequel! Can’t believe what you’ve achieved! As for the story line suggested – I believe that your instincts as a story-teller are A1. Go with your gut feeling. All the best stories are told by following that. You have plenty of it. Can’t wait to see what ensues!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yay, a sequel!!!! πŸ˜€
    I’m so glad it is going ahead, it will tie up the storyline nicely πŸ™‚
