It’s been confirmed today that popular series Broadchurch will return for another series on ITV.
David Tennant and Olivia Colman will both return for series two.
A source has said:
“We’re delighted Broadchurch is back in production, but we’re remaining tight-lipped about how the story develops,” said ITV’s director of drama, Steve November.
“Suffice to say Chris [Chibnall] has delivered as always and the scripts are just as exciting as the first series.”
Filming will start in Dorset very soon!
