Broadchurch to return for a third season, David Tennant and Olivia Colman confirmed to star

Hit ITV drama Broadchurch has been confirmed to return for a third series with Olivia Colman and David Tennant signed up to star once again. 

The show's second season concluded last night (February 23rd) and, after weeks of speculation, producers have now confirmed that a third season will be filmed. 

Broadchurch, which followed Detectives Hardy and Miller as they investigated the death of an 11-year boy in a close-knit small town on the coast of Dorset and the subsequent trial, has attracted an average of over nine million viewers during its second season. Filming dates have yet to be confirmed for the third season. 


Speaking about the commission, ITV's Director of Drama Steve November said: “Chris Chibnall knows exactly how to keep viewers guessing and I’m delighted that he is going to take the story onto the next stage.”

Creator and writer Chris Chibnall added: “We’ve been overwhelmed that nine million people every week have continued to join us on the twists and turns of Broadchurch. This third chapter has been a glint in my eye for a long time and I’m thrilled to be writing these characters once again."
 
The second season of Broadchurch will be released on DVD on March 16th.
