Sky Atlantic‘s acclaimed drama Tin Star has been commissioned for a third and final series.
Tim Roth, Genevieve O’Reilly and Abigail Lawrie will return as the Worth family as the series comes to a close. The show is produced by leading independent producers Kudos and Gaumont UK and created by British writer Rowan Joffe.
Featuring six hour-long episodes, Tin Star series three will go into production later this year and will be set in and around Liverpool, culminating with the Worth family returning to the UK to confront their menacing past. The final episode of series two aired on Sky Atlantic last week.
At the end of series two, which is currently available to watch on demand on Sky and streaming service NOW TV, Jack (Tim Roth) and Angela (Genevieve O’Reilly) are forced to reveal a devastating truth to daughter Anna (Abigail Lawrie), but the family’s dark history soon catches up with them as their ultimate threat arrives on their doorstep.
Cameron Roach, Director of Drama at Sky, said, “We are thrilled to announce a final season of Tin Star. The combination of Rowan’s imagination and the central performances led by Tim Roth mark Tin Star as a standout example of British creativity. Returning alongside our original series such as Britannia and Riviera, as well as forthcoming titles Catherine the Great, Little Birds and Gangs of London, we’re demonstrating our commitment to bring ambitious, local, stories with global appeal to Sky customers.”
Rowan Joffe said, “A show creator and writer’s work is only as good as his team: and I am very grateful to have another chance to write for Tim Roth, Genevieve O’Reilly and Abigail Lawrie – and executive producer Alison Jackson. An awe-inspiring roster of talent and a chance to deliver our best season yet.”
