It had us gripped for two thrilling seasons, and we’ll admit, our Tuesday nights are certainly a little bit less exciting now that Doctor Foster is off our screens.
After the roaring success of the first season, fans also tuned into the second series of the BBC show, and were equally thrilled by the fast-paced drama.
But since the end of the second season in October 2017, it’s been unclear whether or not viewers could expect a third season of the programme.
However, it seems there could now be some positive news for Doctor Foster fans, as a third series has reportedly been given the ‘green light’ – although it is still very early days.
The decision appears to have been spurned by the show’s recent success at the National Television Awards, where it picked up the gong for Best Drama.
A BBC source allegedly told The Sun, “After its ratings success last year commissioners were always keen for it to come back and although its early days they have given it the green light.”
However, it’s said that the show’s star Suranne has a busy few months coming up, so the series might not be on our screens for some time yet.
The source continued, “Suranne is extremely busy with other projects at the moment but bosses are trying to pin her down for some potential filming dates.
“It’s looking like it would film next year at the earliest.”
Suranne herself has previously addressed claims that the popular show would return, admitting that while she wouldn’t rule it out, the cast and crew are pretty booked up in the immediate future.
Speaking to Digital Spy, she explained, “You should never say never because if I say I’m not doing it, then I rule that out, so I’m not saying no.
“But we’re busy. I’m filming until December 2018, so I’m not even free until 2019 and the team are doing their new show, Mike Barlett [the show’s writer] is writing two series, so we’ve not talked about it, because we’re still basking in number two. So who knows?”
