390cd80600000578-3820058-image-m-2_1475511819984 “Broadchurch” Season 3 is now in the works and fans are now waiting for its release date on ITV and Netflix. The British crime drama has been known for its distinctive detective story that features Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman) and Alec Hardy (David Tennant).

“Broadchurch” Season 2 maintained the mystery and intense scenes that were first seen in its predecessor. With that, fans are now expecting to see the same in “Broadchurch” Season 3 or even exceed what the show first offered.

As the showrunners confirmed the return of “Broadchurch” Season 3, viewers are now waiting for the announcement of its official release date. ITV has yet to reveal the show’s airing, but many believe it will be in 2017 as it began filming in May 2016.

Netflix Life reported that after “Broadchurch” Season 3 airs on ITV, viewers can expect it to be seen on Netflix after one to six months. Of course, Ellie Miller and Alec Hardy are bound to return along with Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan, Arthur Darvill, Carolyn Pickles and Adam Wilson.

Meanwhile, it was recently reported that “Broadchurch” Season 3’s production has been spotted ongoing and behind-the-scene clips are now emerging online. David Tennant and Olivia Colman are seen in their characters as Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller.

Julie Hesmondhalgh, too, is seen in an unknown role yet for “Broadchurch” Season 3. However, it has been said that the “Corrie” star’s has a very important role in the coming new installment of the television crime drama.

In between breaks of “Broadchurch” Season 3 production, Julie Hesmondhalgh is openly mingles with her fans as she accommodates everyone for a photo opp. Evidently, fans who are on the set hold their phones and take pictures with the stars.

‘Broadchurch” Season 3 will be filmed in West Bay, Bridport and Clevedon in Dorset on the south coast of England. ITV has yet to announce the official return of “Broadchurch” Season 3 on the small screens.

Olivia+Colman+Summer+TCA+Tour+Day+2+X-yvFAMhDa9l Victoria Coren Mitchell is to present a new BBC Radio 4 series called Women Talking About Cars.
The BBC said the radio show would “explore of what cars symbolise to women today, including freedom, power, refuge, novelty and familiarity”.
The four-part series, which will feature a different guest every week, begins on 30 November.
Dawn French, Olivia Colman, Sarah Millican and Germaine Greer will be among the interviewees.
Coren Mitchell said: “I’m really looking forward to sitting down with some of the greatest women in modern British culture and talking about the pros and cons of the five-speed manual gearbox.”
Cars will be used “as a vehicle to share memories and take a comic look at life, love, sex, work, childhood, adulthood and adventure”, the BBC said.
The episodes will be recorded in front of a live audience at the BBC’s Radio Theatre in London.
Members of the public will be invited to take part in the programme and share their own memories, such as driving to a first job, doing the school run or picnic trips in a campervan.
French, who will appear on the first episode, said: “It will be great to get together with Victoria for a good old girly natter about the torque stats on the BMW Luxus 850.”
BBC Radio 4 comedy commissioning editor Sioned William said of Coren Mitchell: “She’s brainy, witty and – I’m reliably informed – can change a tyre in under five minutes.”

Olivia+Colman+Night+Manager+Premiere+66th+hmych5sMd4Al Screen actress Olivia Colman is returning to the National Theatre to star in a new play about sisters – and particle physics.

The theatre’s artistic director Rufus Norris said that he lured The Night Manager star back to the stage over a coffee.

Olivia, 42, will appear in Mosquitoes, a new play by Lucy Kirkwood, which will have its world premiere in July next year.

Announcing the new work, Rufus said: “It centres on the relationship between two sisters. One is a leading scientist at the opening of the Large Hadron Collider.

“It’s about physics and the search for Higgs boson. There’s an incredibly lively and acerbic relationship between these two sisters and Olivia is playing one of the sisters.”

He added: “I think she’s a really terrific actress.”

He worked with Olivia on the film production of London Road.

“Since then I’ve been trying to woo her back into the theatre,” he said.

“I had a coffee with her not long ago and managed to trick her into stepping back over the line.

“When actors get that kind of success in TV and film, before you know it, five or 10 years have gone by without them being on stage.

“So it’s really important to get them back to keep that side of their craft up.”

The Broadchurch actress previously starred at the National in 2009 in the play England People Very Nice.

Norris will direct the new play.

Previously announced productions at the National Theatre next year also include Imelda Staunton in Follies, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.

Nathan Lane, The Amazing Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield and Russell Tovey all star in Angels In America.

The theatre recently announced a “national listening project… a verbatim archive of conversations from across the UK” which took place in the days after the EU Referendum in June.

A performance based on the first round of material, created in collaboration with poet Carol Ann Duffy, will be entitled My Country: A Work In Progress.

102495036-fleabag-features-large_transqvzuuqpflyliwib6ntmjwfwqqynu-iu8rotkwb3xhpq Hit Phoebe Waller-Bridge comedy Fleabag is almost certain to return for a second series.
According to BBC sources, both the Corporation and the writer and star herself are keen to make a second season of the show which aired first on BBC3 and finished its BBC2 run at the end of last month.

“Although a second series isn’t officially commissioned yet, we are in discussions and there is a real desire of both sides for it to return, we’re just not sure exactly when,” said a senior BBC source.
Series one of the darkly comic tale of a mischievous and troubled young woman ended with Waller-Bridge’s eponymous Fleabag still at a crossroads in her life following a startling revelation concerning her late friend and business partner Boo (Jenny Rainsford).
Other characters in the acclaimed comedy included Fleabag’s uptight sister Claire (Sian Clifford), her emotionally needy ex-boyfriend played by Hugh Skinner, her ambivalent dad (Bill Paterson) and her passive-aggressive step-mum (Olivia Colman).
Speaking before the broadcast of the comedy, Waller-Bridge intimated that the show was written with a second series in mind.
“We cracked it open so that she would be able to have a life beyond it and also there are so many more stories and story strands and character strands come out of this series,” she said.
Fleabag originated from a one-woman stage show of the same name which Waller-Bridge is bringing back to London’s Soho Theatre later this autumn.

olivia_colman_to_return_for_a_second_series_of_channel_4_comedy_flowers Channel 4’s eccentric comedy Flowers will bloom again.
A second series of the dark comedy will see the return of Olivia Colman’s Deborah and her depressed husband Maurice (Julian Barratt), the broadcaster has announced.
The six-part run will look at a new era of their marriage and whether they can survive the challenges laid bare in series one, including Maurice’s suicide attempt and Deborah’s infidelity.
The Flowers’ twins Donald (Daniel Rigby, Black Mirror, Eric and Ernie) and Amy (Sophia di Martino, The Darkest Universe, Friday Night Dinner) will also be back, as will the character of Shun, the Flowers’ Japanese factotum played by the writer Will Sharpe.
The recommission is a sign of Channel 4’s faith in the show: it opened in April with 710,000 viewers for episode one. Overnight ratings dropped to 400,000 in the middle of the run before rallying to 680,000 for the series finale.
The show’s consolidated viewing was an average of 1m viewers per episode across the five episodes.
Deputy Head of Comedy Nerys Evans, who commissioned the show for Channel 4 said: “Covering deeply complex issues like fidelity, mental health, sexuality and fraying family bonds, Will Sharpe’s hilariously awkward and heart-breaking show offers another unmissable look at the Flowers’ messed up world.
“Will’s scripts and the show’s perfect cast are so brilliant at making you wail with laughter one minute, and well up the next. I couldn’t be more excited for the family’s return to Channel 4.”

DF32ED9A06A888D54C929BC6D5FD9_h498_w598_m2 Olivia Colman turned heads earlier this year with her performance as Angela Burr, the steely spy in The Night Manager. The BBC’s adaptation of the John le Carré novel gripped the Sunday night audience across the country, and was the most expensive BBC production to date, with each episode costing about £3m to make.
Ever since it ended, people have been asking if there’ll be a second series. According to Hugh Laurie, who played the villainous David Roper, the only way this could happen would be if le Carré were to write a sequel.
On whether she’d do another stint as Burr, Colman said: “You’d have to be a complete idiot to say no. I think that if they called we’d all say yes.”
In an interview with Deadline, she added that her husband compared Burr’s character to a zebra who’s not afraid of lions – the lions being Tom Hiddleston’s Pine and Hugh Laurie’s Roper.
After The Night Manager there was also a lot of chatter on Twitter about Colman being the next Bond. Colman dismissed this as “sort of a comedy tweet” and said she would prefer Hiddleston as Ian Fleming’s 007: “I mean, he would be perfect wouldn’t he? He’s the perfect specimen for Bond.”
She did, however, admit that she’d like to play the head of MI6: “I like M. I’d love to be M one day. Well, maybe when Ralph Fiennes doesn’t want to do it anymore, maybe he’ll give me a ring.”
Watch this space.

11435160-low-res-fleabagAmazon’s comedy line-up for the coming month is kind of insane. Today, they debut the full series of “One Mississippi,” the semi-autobiographical comedy from stand-up Tig Notaro and “Juno” Oscar-winner Diablo Cody. In a couple of weeks, they’ll premiere the third season of the wildly acclaimed “Transparent,” and at the end of the month, they have the first TV series from none other than Woody Allen, “Crisis In Six Scenes.”

But could it be that the best of the bunch is the least known? Next Friday will see the release on the streaming service of all six episodes of “Fleabag,” a BBC/Amazon co-production that’s already won rave reviews in the U.K. Based on the one-woman show by writer/actor Phoebe Waller-Bridge(“Broadchurch,” “The Iron Lady”), it’s best described as a fourth-wall breaking UK spin on “Girls,” following a young London twenty-something as she navigates sex, grief and life.

It’s got a strong cast, including national treasure Olivia Colman and U.S. scene-stealer Brett Gelman, and reviews from the U.K. have been ecstatic. Could this become a word-of-mouth hit like fellow Amazon UK import “Catastrophe” became? You can get your first glimpse of the show below with a just-released trailer, and check it out on Amazon from next Friday, October 16th.
