Calling all Guilt fans! The BBC has released a chaotic trailer for the show's final season, which asks whether brothers Max (Mark Bonnar) and Jake (Jamie Sives) can possibly escape the consequences of their actions "unscathed".


The series began back in 2019 when the duo accidentally killed an elderly man in a hit-and-run as they were driving home from a wedding while under the influence.

After becoming a ratings hit, the show was recommissioned for a second season, which picked up two years after the events of the first and also dealt with the titular theme of guilt.

Creator Neil Forsyth (The Gold) returned to pen the final chapter in the story, which sees Max retrieve Jake from his bar in Chicago, Illinois, to bring him back to Scotland. Watch it below:

The narrator of the trailer says: "[Max and Jake] are back and looking for redemption. It's the final chapter in this critically-acclaimed drama, but who will make it out unscathed?"
