The Tower has had viewers gripped for the last two episodes, but how many episodes are left in ITV’s gritty drama and when does The Tower episode 3 air?  

Based on Post Mortem, the first in Kate London’s Metropolitan series of novels, The Tower follows the characters of DS Sarah Collins (played by Game of Throne alum Gemma Whelan) and another female officer, Lizzie.

ITV’s synopsis of the show explains, "Two people have fallen from the top of a tower block in south east London—a veteran beat cop and a teenage girl. Left alive on the roof are rookie police officer Lizzie Adama and a five-year-old boy."

Within hours, Lizzie has disappeared, and Detective Sergeant Sarah Collins is charged with leading the investigation. She not only has to track down Lizzie before she comes to serious harm, but also to uncover the truth behind the grisly deaths."

Fans have already caught the first two episodes (with catch-up available on ITV Hub), but when will episode three air and how many episodes are in the series?


When is The Tower episode 3 on?

Episode three of The Tower will air tonight, Wednesday November 10, on ITV.

Fans will be able to watch live from 9pm or catch up on ITV Hub.

How many episodes of The Tower are there?

Tonight’s episode will be the last of the current series.

The three-part drama started airing on Monday, November 8.

Will there be a season 2 of The Tower?

Tonight’s episode three might be the last of the current run, but it might not be the last fans see of The Tower.

Tahirah Sharif (who plays runaway police officer Lizzie) said that the other Metropolitan novels could be adapted by ITV for follow-up instalments.

She said, “I mean, Kate London… The Tower is based on Post Mortem, [and]… she’s written three novels. [The book series] kind of follows Lizzie and Sarah, these two characters, through their personal lives and their careers and potentially meeting again in different kinds of situations.”

She continued, “So I think purely based upon the fact that there are two other novels already written, I think it’s definitely got scope to carry on.”
