David Tennant started filming the third and final series of Broadchurch in May 2016. It follows the great success of the first two series which were broadcast in the UK in 2013 and 2015 respectively. Both series were also subsequently shown in countries all over the world. The third series is expected to be broadcast in 2017.
David will be joined in the third series by Olivia Colman, Arthur Darvill, Andrew Buchan and Jodie Whittaker from the first series, plus Lenny Henry, Roy Hudd, Julie Hesmondhalgh, Georgina Campbell, Sarah Parish, Charlie Higson and Mark Bazeley are new cast members with significant roles.
Chris Chibnall has again writen the series and it will consist of a brand new case for Miller and Hardy with the detectives teaming up to investigate a serious sexual assault and its consequences as the drama's Dorset community comes under scrutiny.
