Fans of female detective drama Scott and Bailey – a recent addition to our WETA UK lineup here in the Washington, DC area – will be pleased to know that an official trailer for drama’s third series has been released. The show follows the personal and professional lives of two female detective constables who are close friends with very different personalities.
Series 3 will be comprised of eight new episodes. Actresses Suranne Jones and Lesley Sharp are both returning and they will again be joined by Amelia Bullmore, who has also apparently written two installments of the upcoming series. We're currently only on Series 1 on our air here - and we'll probably have to wait a bit for Series 3 to become available - but it's stll nice to see! Give it a look below.
ITV always does pick the best music for their promos, I have to say. Scott and Bailey has been a fairly strong ratings hit for the UK network and the drama ranks as one of ITV’s most successful new dramas in recent years (barring a certain costumed behemoth called Downton Abbey).
Series 3 is set to air in the UK on ITV this Spring. No word yet on when it will become available for broadcast in America, though it is very likely to show up on this side of the pond at some point in the not too distant future. If you’re curious about Scott & Bailey, the drama airs on Monday nights on WETA UK, so go give it a look!
