BBC Cymru Wales and S4C crime drama Keeping Faith/Un Bore Mercher will return for a third and final series, both broadcasters have today confirmed. Fans told to get set for another thrilling series as acting royalty Celia Imrie joins the cast.
Eve Myles set to return as Faith Howells, Bradley Freegard as Evan Howells and Mark Lewis Jones as Steve Baldini. Olivier award-winning Celia Imrie is set to join the cast for series three.
Judging by this image BBC Cymru Wales tweeted out, production has already begun, which means we could see this later this year.
BBC Cymru Wales Head of Commissioning Nick Andrews says: “Keeping Faith is a fantastic show and I’m delighted that it will return for a third series. A record-breaker on iPlayer, it has a passionate following of fans and is characteristic of the high-quality drama being produced in Wales right now and enjoyed by people across the UK. Looking ahead, the pace of great made-in-Wales telly shows no sign of slowing down.”
Amanda Rees, S4C Director of Content, says: “S4C is thrilled to see the return of Un Bore Mercher in 2020. This pioneering drama is hailed as one of S4C’s Originals, and the award-winning thriller, set in the heart of one of Wales’ most beautiful landscapes, has raised the profile of Welsh drama across the world.”
