With Van der Valk season 2 having come to a dramatic end, naturally thoughts turn to the future and potential further seasons.

Well, there's good news on this front: Van der Valk season 3 has already kicked off filming in Amsterdam.

Executive producer Michele Buck said: "We are happy to announce some good news for Van der Valk fans, season 3 has already been filmed on location in Amsterdam and will return to your screens next year."

It’s unclear whether the new season will consist of three episodes, like seasons 1 and 2, or more.

The original adaptation of Nicolas Freeling's book series ran for 32 episodes, meaning there should still be plenty of material for more instalments.

Fans are also likely to be wondering whether Marc Warren, Maimie McCoy and the rest of the cast will be returning to the Amsterdam-based crime drama on ITV.

Read on for everything you need to know about Van der Valk season 3.

Has Van der Valk been renewed for season 3?

Van der Valk season 3 has yet to be confirmed.

ITV hasn't yet said that the series is officially returning, but things are looking very hopeful.

Marc Warren told RadioTimes.com and other press ahead of the second season that he would like to return "as long as people want it" and added "let's see what the reaction is".

Meanwhile back in April Lucienne Hassell star Maimie McCoy posted a script for Van der Valk season 3 on Instagram and said she was "back keeping the streets safe".

Here's hoping this means that a third season will be back on ITV sooner rather than later. We'll make sure to keep this page updated as and when more news becomes available.

When would Van der Valk season 3 be released?

It's difficult to say when Van der Valk would return at this point, given that season 2's production was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. We would therefore hope that the gap of two years which took place between seasons 1 and 2 would not be the norm.

If Maimie McCoy's Instagram post does mean filming has already begun, this could mean that we see more episodes in the near future.

We would suspect that Summer 2023 is the earliest we will see more from Piet and Lucienne, but at this point, we'll just have to wait and see.

Van der Valk cast - who would be back for season 3?

A cast list hasn't been confirmed for Van der Valk season 3 yet, but with Marc Warren expressing interest in returning we'd expect the central cast from Van der Valk season 2 to all be back for more.

Here's a full list of the major players we'd expect to return for Van Der Valk season 3:

  • Marc Warren as Piet van der Valk
  • Maimie McCoy as Lucienne Hassell
  • Luke Allen-Gale as Brad de Vries
  • Elliot Barnes-Worrell as Job Cloovers
  • Darrell D'Silva as Hendrik Davie
  • Emma Fielding as Julia Dahlman
