A third and final series of Sky Atlantic’s critically acclaimed drama Tin Star — starring Tim Roth, Genevieve O’Reilly and Abigail Lawrie — is to return to the UK for its final chapter.

TinStar 8June2018At the end of series two, Jack (Roth) and Angela (O’Reilly) are forced to reveal a truth to daughter Anna (Abigail Lawrie), but the family’s dark history soon catches up with them as their ultimate threat arrives on their doorstep. Produced by leading independent producers Kudos and Gaumont UK and created by writer Rowan Joffe, the third instalment (6 x 60’) will go into production later this year and will be set in and around Liverpool, culminating with the Worth family returning to the UK to confront their menacing past.

“We are thrilled to announce a final season of Tin Star,” said Sky Director of Drama Cameron Roach. “The combination of Rowan’s imagination and the central performances led by Tim Roth mark Tin Star as a standout example of British creativity. Returning alongside our original series such as Britannia and Riviera, as well as forthcoming titles Catherine the Great, Little Birds and Gangs of London, we’re demonstrating our commitment to bring ambitious, local, stories with global appeal to Sky customers.”

Alison Jackson, President at Gaumont, added: “I’m so thrilled to be able to continue my relationship with Tin Star while in my new role. Having the show as Gaumont's first UK co-production is terrific. Bringing the narrative of the show back to the UK gives us an exciting opportunity to surprise our audience and give the Worth family an even bigger and more unexpected challenge this season! I look forward to spending more time with the amazing characters established so beautifully by our cast in seasons one and two.”

The third series of Tin Star has been commissioned for Sky by director of drama Cameron Roach and director of programmes for Sky entertainment UK & Ireland Zai Bennett, and is internationally distributed by Endemol Shine International and Sky Vision.
