Marcella is back.
The ITV series, created by The Bridge’s Hans Rosenfeldt and starring Anna Friel, is to return to our screens at the end of this month.
Following on from the dramatic conclusion of the previous series, the new eight-parter sees Marcella in Belfast as an undercover detective. She has taken on a new identity, Keira, and has infiltrated the infamous Maguire crime family but as she investigates their activities, questions come to the fore about how much she’s embraced the Keira personality and left Marcella behind.
In true Marcella style, the series has interweaving storylines with strands focusing upon the Maguires’ criminal operations. As she inhabits the character of Keira, Marcella’s quest for the truth puts her in danger and others in harm’s way. Her undercover role makes her take risks, but will her old life eventually catch up with her?
Marcella (Series 3): Tuesday 26th January, 9pm, ITV (all episodes available on ITV Hub)
