How many episodes are there of Finding Alice?

The series is made up of six episodes, each an hour long.

They will be shown over the course of six weeks, each an hour long episode. But all the episodes have now been put on the ITV Hub so you cant watch the whole series in full.

Finding Alice went into production at the beginning of the year, but had to be pushed back due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Luckily, filming finally finished in October 2020, with Keeley sharing a Tweet at the time which reads: “That’s a wrap for me on #FindingAlice!

"It’s been a long journey and we are so grateful to every single person who made our special show happen, and such a pleasure to work on.”

According to ITV, the drama 'focuses upon Alice’s honest, raw, blackly comic journey of grief, love and life after the death of her husband Harry'.

In a twist, Harry’s death reveals a string of secrets, criminality and debt that Alice must now face.

When the show was announced, writer Simon Nye said: “I am relishing tackling a big, emotional, contemporary subject. And who better to do it with than the amazing Keeley and legendary director/writer Roger Goldby, having survived working with them on The Durrells.”

ITV’s head of drama Polly Hill added: “This is a brilliant script – emotionally truthful and darkly funny. It’s about family and grief and introduces us to the wonderfully original character of Alice.”
