In the second series Broadchurch is a town in shock, after the revelation of the identity of Danny Latimer’s killer. Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller find themselves drawn back into the case as it goes to court. Ellie, estranged from family and friends, only has Hardy to turn to. But Hardy is a man still haunted by illness and the case he never could solve--Sandbrook. As the trial proceeds, battle lines are drawn: between legal teams, between the residents of the town, and even between family members. Lives will be thrown under the spotlight, and the deepest secrets laid bare for all to see. As Joe Miller’s trial and the Sandbrook case collide, no-one will emerge unscathed.

The third series of the show will begin filming in the summer of 2016 and is expected to air in ITV in early 2017.
