David Tennant and Olivia Colman return as Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller as the mismatched detectives reunite for their last case together.
This time Hardy and Miller will be tracking down the perpetrator of a serious sexual assault following a disclosure by a woman called Trish (Julie Hesmondhalgh) who presents herself at Broadchurch police station after she is attacked at a party. With the familiar faces around the town as well as a host of new characters, there are plenty of suspects to investigate - and Hardy and Miller have their own family issues to deal with as well. Jodie Whittaker, Arthur Darvill and Andrew Buchan also return, with Lenny Henry, Sarah Parish, Mark Bazeley and Roy Hudd joining the cast.
Confirmed worldwide start dates for Broadchurch so far are:
Australia - Friday 3rd March, ABC, 8.30pm
New Zealand - Sunday 5th March, TVNZ 1, 8.30pm
Canada - Sunday 5th March, Showcase, 10.00pm ET
BBC America have confirmed that they will be airing the series later this year.
