The makers of hit ITV drama Liar which was filmed in Deal have not confirmed whether a second series will be made - but if it is, it could be a prequel.
Production teams took over two houses in the town during filming last November, one towards the north end of the Marina, which is the home of character Laura Nielson played by Joanne Froggatt, and the other in Wellington Parade in Kingsdown, the home of her sister.
If a spin off is to be created, the likelihood of them returning to the area is high, but viewers will have to wait at least another week to find out.

Producer Eliza Mellor told KentOnline: “There is no official line yet on series two.
“We’ll know for sure closer to episode six transmission next Monday but ITV is delighted with the response to the show and the figures which are hitting eight million with catch up.”
Even if Deal isn’t chosen at the backdrop for a second series, the air time received so far has proved positive.
It was rumoured in The Sun on Saturday that any follow-up will be a prequel where viewers will see the characters before the rape of Laura. This could include Andrew’s wife who killed herself after he told her he had been unfaithful with her best friend.
Ms Mellor added: “Everyone seems to be very excited about Deal too so here’s hoping you get lots more visitors to the town.”
The fives episodes aired so far have been rich with Deal shots including the pier, Jasin’s Restaurant, Deal Beach Parlour and Hope and Lane restaurant in the High Street opposite St George’s Church.
There has also been snapshots of the promenade, the art-deco shelters, the beach and beach huts.
The final episode will air on Monday at 9pm.
