New Life On Mars series gets title

A few weeks ago we brought you news that the creators of Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes – Matthew Graham and Ashley Pharoah – had revealed that they were working on the third iteration of beloved supernatural-tinged procedural.

During a live watch-along of Life On Mars, Graham issued a number of tweets that revealed details about what would be a third and final instalment of the story.

Graham told fans that he’s expecting all the main stars – John Simm, Phillip Glenister and Keeley Hawes among them – for the instalment, and see it as as ‘four or five episodes’.

Now, Graham – in the latest watch party – has confirmed that the third series will be called Lazarus.

Life On Mars lead, John Simm, joined in with the watch party last night, and tweeted his own excitement at the development.

“Right. We need to book a restaurant table. Sharpish.”

    Watched ‘Life on Mars’ for the first time during the Covid-19 lockdown, absolutely loved it… didn’t fancy ‘Ashes to Ashes ‘ as I thought it would be a patch on Life on Mars, wow how wrong was I… so exited about the making of ‘Lazarus’
