David Tennant and Olivia Coleman will be returning to the west country for a new series of Broadchurch. The ITV drama which was watched by 9 million people last year is filmed in and around West Bay in Dorset and in Clevedon in North Somerset.
The second series has been penned by Chris Chibnall, who created and wrote the first series. He has previously said that the new run will be "completely different".
ITV's director of drama Steve November said: "We're delighted Broadchurch is back in production, but we're remaining tight-lipped about how the story develops.
"Suffice to say Chris has delivered as always and the scripts are just as exciting as the first series."
Executive producer Jane Featherstone said: "The reaction to Broadchurch from UK viewers has been incredible. So we'd like viewers to enjoy the new series knowing as little as possible about what's to come and for the story to unfold in real time."
I’m really looking forward to visiting PQA Bristol.
It’s always nice to meet students and find out more about them and their aspirations. It’s such a great way to give children confidence and to give them an opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.’
Tonight a brand new ITV drama begins on our screens, and it's set to get our hearts racing! Broadchurch, starring David Tenant, and Olivia Colman, was filmed on the beautiful coastlines of Dorset. It's a spine-tingling thriller. Divya Kohli went behind the scenes.
