New 'Broadchurch' Series To Be Filmed In Dorset

A new series of hit TV show 'Broadchurch' is to be filmed in Dorset.

It's been confirmed stars David Tennant (above) and Olivia Colman will return for the second series, which is to be filmed in the county again.

The ITV murder mystery will be back for a new instalment after wowing more than nine million viewers last year.

Much of the first series was filmed at West Bay near Bridport.

Tennant, who played Detective Inspector Alec Hardy, was subsequently hired for the US remake.

Now it has been confirmed that Tennant will return to his role, and Colman will be back as Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller.

The second series has been penned by Chris Chibnall, who created and wrote the first series.

He has previously said that the new run will be "completely different''.

ITV's director of drama Steve November said:

"We're delighted Broadchurch is back in production, but we're remaining tight-lipped about how the story develops.

"Suffice to say Chris has delivered as always and the scripts are just as exciting as the first series.''

Executive producer Jane Featherstone said:

"The reaction to Broadchurch from UK viewers has been incredible. So we'd like viewers to enjoy the new series knowing as little as possible about what's to come and for the story to unfold in real time.''
