BBC America has confirmed that Broadchurch is to return to the network for the third and final time in 2017. The announcement was made earlier today via a brief video teaser comprising of shots taken from the first two seasons:
The third season of the award-winning ITV crime drama was filmed in the UK's West Country during summer and autumn 2016. David Tennant and Olivia Colman return as detectives Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller in a new investigation that centres on a serious sexual assault. Also returning are Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan, Arthur Darvill and Carolyn Pickles, and the cast will be joined by a host of new faces, including Sir Lenny Henry, Julie Hesmondhalgh, Charlie Higson and Roy Hudd. The show is written and produced by the next Doctor Who showrunner, Chris Chibnall.
