The BBC has announced recently, in their BBC Radio 4 weekly newsletter, that they have commissioned another three full-cast Torchwood audio plays that are now in production and are scheduled to be broadcast over the radio station later this Summer.

previous audio dramas, 'Asylum'.
The report also stated that the main cast of the new series will all feature – so presumably new-recruits Mekhi Phifer (Rex Matheson) and Alexa Havins (Esther Drummond) are also included as well as other international characters.
But Kai Owen (plays Gwen’s hubby, Rhys, as you probably know) has made a specific confirmation over Twitter that he will be starring in the audios as well.
In response to the question, “BBC4 Newsletter said there is going to be a new 3 part Torchwood Audio Play this summer - Are you recording for that?”, Owen replied…

Yes!! Recording next week x
No further details about the nature of the production such as whether Starz is still involved in the audios (and if so how they will release them in the US, as they do not have their own radio station) or anything about further casting or storylines are yet to be confirmed.
Torchwood: Miracle Day, starring John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Kai Owen, Mekhi Phifer and Alexa Havins premieres this Summer on 8th July.
