Will there be a Professor T season 3?
Will the Professor be back to crack more cases?
ITV's second season of Professor T has now come to an end, with Ben Miller's detective taking on a case involving the discovery of an undercover police officer's body, a drugs squad operation and a potential cat amongst the pigeons in their own team in the finale.
Season 2 saw Miller's detective and his mother Adelaide (Frances de la Tour) seeking help from a therapist in order to uncover secrets from the professor’s troubled childhood, in a plotline which introduced Juliet Stevenson's Dr Helena Goldberg.
But will the Professor be back for a third season, alongside his trusty colleague Lisa Donckers, as played by Emma Naomi?
Read on for everything you need to know about a potential Professor T season 3.
Will there be a third season of Professor T?
There will! It has now been officially confirmed that a new season is on the way, with filming taking place in Belgium and Cambridge in spring 2023.
The new season will see Professor T "banged up in prison and with his career on the line he is forced to make a momentous decision".
It has also been revealed that the "formidable duo of Jasper’s mother Adelaide (Frances de La Tour) and his therapist Dr Helena (Juliet Stevenson) will be on hand to offer their own unique brand of support".
Walter Iuzzolino, CEO of production company Eagle Eye Drama, said: "Professor T has become an international sales sensation for good reason; a quality crime drama with a stand-out ensemble of warm returning characters, headed up by the incomparable Ben Miller who has truly made Professor T his own."
When will Professor T season 3 be released?
