I loved the BBC/HBO series based on his books starring Jill Scott. I was wondering if there were plans for a second season?

I was leery about a TV series and have been thrilled at now being able to share Ma Ramotswe with my husband and Daughter. We love the graphic art that appears in the show. Can you suggest a book be published of this artwork? And, we are desperate for the next season to air; is that to be?
