The teaser gave a hint of what’s to come in February with the words: “Here we suffered grief and pain / Here we meet to part again.”
The Tweet added: “It’s Back. / #Broadchurch. February.”
Series three of the popular crime-drama will see David Tennant and Olivia Colman reprise their roles as Detective Inspector Alec Hardy and Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller.
The thrilling finale of series two saw Ellie’s former husband Joe Miller found not guilty of the murder of Danny Latimer, the child whose murder investigation was the focal point of series one.
Series three will reportedly see Ellie and Alec investigate a sexual assault in the small town of Broadchurch.
Speaking when the third series was announced in 2015, creator and writer Chris Chibnall said: “We’ve been overwhelmed that nine million people every week have continued to join us on the twists and turns of Broadchurch. This third chapter has been a glint in my eye for a long time and I’m thrilled to be writing these characters once again.”
ITV’s director of drama Steve November added: “Chris Chibnall knows exactly how to keep viewers guessing and I’m delighted that he is going to take the story onto the next stage.”
