Broadchurch is back! ITV confirms air date

David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Arthur Darvill and the rest of the cast will return to our screens on Monday 5th January

It’s been nigh-on two years since Broadchurch dramatically revealed it would return in the closing credits of the series finale…and the wait has been tortuous. 


Thankfully, it’s nearly over. ITV are delivering a belated Christmas present this January with the return of their award-wining drama which stars David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan and Arthur Darvill. 

And today brings us an actual air date: Monday 5th January. Clear your diary and book a place on your sofa to find out exactly what’s in store for the residents of the sleepy Dorset village who suffered the aftermath of Danny Latimer’s mysterious murder back in 2013.

So far, writer Chris Chibnall has been secretive about what he’s got planned for the next batch of episodes. Beyond news of the returning cast members, and the addition of the likes of Charlotte Rampling and Eve Myles, fans have precious few details. 

That hasn’t stopped them hatching various theories, spurred on by ITV’s cryptic series two footage teasing “the end is where it begins”…
