When will The Split season 3 be released?

Abi Morgan’s family drama The Split will be returning for its third and final outing after the BBC confirmed the show was going into production.

As work has only just started on the filming on the show, it’s unclear when it will be coming out but it could either be at some point in 2021 or perhaps in 2022.

However, the coronavirus pandemic could affect filming and impact on when the series will be released, so it’s not clear for now when the show will start.

There are expected to be another six episodes in the last run – following suit with the previous two instalments.

The show was always destined to end with season three after creator Morgan envisioned it as a trilogy.

Picking up 10 months after the last outing, season three sees Hannah and Nathan preparing to get divorced but trying to do it in the most civilised way possible after her betrayal was revealed.

But a spanner will be thrown in the works which will see the stakes upped considerably and things turning ugly.

Speaking about what to expect from season three, Morgan said: “It’s great to be back writing for the Defoe Family, and to dive once more into to the complications of their lives and those of their clients.

“In the final series of this bittersweet trilogy, Hannah faces the heartbreak of her own divorce, and the fight to save her family and her marriage.

“Siblings clash, past mistakes are exposed and hearts are broken as Noble Hale and Defoe notches up more billable hours in the divorce capital of the world.”

While lead star Walker said: “I can’t wait to be back in the Defoe Family, we are all looking forward to the journey Abi has planned for us.

“I don’t know if Hannah will cling to the wreckage or walk away, but I do know it’s going to be a fantastic ride.”

To add to the intrigue, producers Jane Featherstone and Lucy Dyke both warned there would be tears in the last outing, so people should have the tissues ready.
