Will there be a fourth series?

This depends on Abi Morgan.

The talented writer previously said the series “has always been conceived as three”.

She said: “It was always the plan and in fact I don’t think I’m saying anything out of turn here, the BBC would have loved us to have gone on really.”

The Beeb aren’t the only ones, but now it looks like the broadcaster and fans may get their wish.

Speaking to Radio Times, Abi said there are still lots of stories to be told around the Defoe family.

When asked about the potential of a spin-off she said: “Watch this space, I’m sure there’ll be news about that very soon. But I really love those actors. I’m definitely hoping I get to work with them again.”

Acknowledging the audience’s appetite, she teased: “There are just more stories to be told. So fingers crossed.”
