Female-led detective drama Scott & Bailey is set to return for its fourth season shortly on ITV in the UK. The show follows the personal and professional lives of two detective constables who are close friends with very different personalities, as they solve crimes and navigate the pressures of modern-day policing as women.

The fabulous Suranne Jones and Lesley Sharp are back as the titular crimefighting duo, alongside Amelia Bullmore as DCI Gill Murray. (Fun fact: Bullmore is also pulling double duty as a scriptwriter again, penning four of the scripts.) They’ll be joined by newcomer Danny Webb, who takes on the role of family man DC Chris Crowle, and Emmerdale’s Danny Miller returns as DS Robb Waddington.

Series 4 will be comprised of eight episodes, and change certainly seems afoot for the Manchester Police’s Major Incident Team, as both DC Rachel Bailey and DC Janet Scott compete for a promotion to Detective Sargeant. Dun dun dunnnnn. 

Watch the trailer for Series 4 below:  

The new season of Scott and Bailey airs this September on ITV, and hopefully, if we’re lucky – will make its way to public television stations in America not too long thereafter. Cross your fingers!

What do you hope to see in Series 4?
