The UK drama, which airs on BBC America in the U.S., stars David Tennant and Olivia Colman as two detectives investigating the murder of a young boy in a small seaside town.
Speaking to BBC Radio 4, Chibnall said season three is it for Broadchurch. There will be no more seasons:
That is it and there will be no more after this one, absolutely. … It’s been an extraordinary journey with the show it has taken us all by surprise. … It’s hard to say goodbye. I’ve asked myself, ‘Why am I walking away from the two best actors in the country?’”
The third and final season of Broadchurch just finished airing on ITV. BBC America has not yet announced a U.S. premiere date for the season, but it is expected to air sometime later this year.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Broadchurch? Are you sad it’s coming to an end?
