May 25 (UPI) -- The third and final season of Broadchurch is to premiere on BBC America June 28.
"We start the final season in the trilogy three years on from the last season, five years on from the start," executive producer Jane Featherstone said in a statement. "There is a bold, new crime story, which forces us to ask whether the town has a crack running through it caused by Danny Latimer's death; is this new crime somehow the long-term legacy of that dark moment? Our central characters must contend with this possibility as they battle to make hope, friendship and love triumph over fear and suspicion, as a host of new suspects present themselves. The great privilege of long-form storytelling is building a meaningful relationship between our characters and the audience, and I am excited for the audience to see how Ellie, Hardy and the Latimers have fared in the last few years. It is a fond farewell for those of us involved in the series for so many years, but as far as I am concerned, the community of Broadchurch will carry on living long after we've gone."
