David Tennant and Olivia Colman will return for the second series of Broadchurch ITV has confirmed today.
Tennant’s future with the show was in doubt after it was announced that he would be starring in the US remake of the show, which will be known as Gracepoint. Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan and Arthur Darvill will also return to the show.
Broadchurch’s second series will begin filming shortly in Dorset and details about the production are being kept under wraps. Creator and writer Chris Chibnall has promised another story full of secrecy and intrigue.
ITV’s Director of Drama Steve November and Controller of Drama Victoria Fea have commissioned the new series. “We’re delighted Broadchurch is back in production, but we’re remaining tight-lipped about how the story develops,” said Steve. “Suffice to say Chris has delivered as always and the scripts are just as exciting as the first series.”
A return date for the series is yet to be confirmed but as soon as we know we’ll of course share the news with you.
