It’s been confirmed that Tin Star season 3 will go ahead. The Sky Atlantic series has been on the air for two seasons so far, with the first beginning back in 2017. It stars one of Britain’s biggest acting exports, Tim Roth and also features Christina Hendricks in a leading role. Although a third season of Tin Star has been given the green light, the news is caveated with the fact that the upcoming season will be its last.
Filming is scheduled to begin in late 2019 and is likely to hit screens in 2020. Tin Star season 3 will also see the Worth family back on British soil for the first time in the series. Presumably taking place in and around Liverpool, we’ll have to see how the change in setting affects the tone of the dark and brooding show.
Rowan Joffé, writer and show creator, has expressed his feelings about Tin Star season 3 in a recent statement.
“A show creator and writer’s work is only as good as his team, and I am very grateful to have another chance to write for Tim Roth, Genevieve O’Reilly and Abigail Lawrie – and executive producer Alison Jackson. An awe-inspiring roster of talent and a chance to deliver our best season yet.”
Sky Atlantic’s Tin Star has been fairly well received with audiences over the years. Its undoubtedly pretty backdrop of the Canadian Rockies sets a picturesque show. The reality of the series however features a dangerous and moody tone, where Tim Roth seems to be fighting for survival.
“We are thrilled to announce a final season of Tin Star. 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.”Sky’s Cameron Roach
Although it appears as sad news that Tin Star will be going away, the announcement of a Tin Star season 3 should hopefully be enough to satiate fans’ desire for the show to go on and as the writers are aware its the last season we should hopefully get a satisfying ending.
