Tennant and Colman back for second series of Broadchurch

Tennant and Colman back for second series of Broadchurch

ITV, Kudos and Imaginary Friends have today confirmed the returning cast for the new series of Broadchurch, which is set to begin filming in Dorset shortly.

David Tennant will return as Alec Hardy, whilst Olivia Colman resumes her role as Ellie Miller. Jodie Whittaker and Andrew Buchan will also return to their roles, alongside Arthur Darvill as local vicar Paul Coates.

No other details have yet been revealed.

ITV's director of drama, Steve November, and controller of drama, Victoria Fea, have commissioned the new series.

"We're delighted Broadchurch is back in production, but we're remaining tight-lipped about how the story develops," said November. "Suffice to say Chris has delivered as always and the scripts are just as exciting as the first series."

The first series of Broadchurch was a major success for ITV, with the final consolidated rating for the last episode reaching 10.5 million, 1.4 million higher than the season launch.
