Criminal UK Season 3: Release Date, Cast, Plot and More Information

Criminal UK Season 3: Will there be a 3rd season of criminal? And, given that the seven episodes produced so far have all landed big name guests to play the suspects, who can we expect to be there if the show returns? Here’s all you want to know


Criminal UK Season 3: Release Date

There is a good news for all the fans, that netflix is yet to announce another season of criminal. However, series regular Katherine Kelly – who plays DI Natalie Hobbs – has revealed that “there could be a attempt to do more”.


If the 3rd season is happening, the continued COVID-19 pandemic could potentially have an impact on production, with all major TV and film productions now adapting their schedules and production techniques in an effort to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

Kelly, though, has suggested that Criminal is actually “a very COVID-friendly show” since it features a small cast, limited locations and no major action set-pieces.

Criminal UK Season 3: Cast

No stars have been announced for the third season of Criminal yet.

Alongside a powerful guest cast, the show stars a variety of familiar faces as police investigators.

Among those expected to return are Katherine Kelly as DI Natalie Hobbs, Lee Ingleby as DI Tony Myerscough, Nicholas Pinnock as DI Paul Ottager, Rochenda Sandall as DC Vanessa Warren  and Shubham Saraf as DC Kyle Petit.

**Spoiler alert** Duffy returns within the ultimate episode of season two, now back in uniform following his demotion, and assists the team in bringing convicted killer Sandeep Singh (Kunal Nayyar) to justice.


However, the show is also sure to feature some major guest stars when it returns as well to follow in the footsteps of actors like David Tennant and Hayley Atwell.

Criminal UK Season 3: Plot

We know that this Netflix series revolves around crime diaries from all actors within the world. It basically centres around a group of investigators in their quest to investigate a heinous crime.

Each episode of Criminal is more or less self-contained, though a running story thread across both seasons so far has seen DI Tony Myerscough (Lee Ingleby) struggle to pluck up the courage to ask his boss Natalie on a date.

At the close of season two, Natalie finally got bored of waiting and took the initiative, asking Tony to share a drink at the pub – a third season then would likely continue to explore their evolving relationship as a backdrop to the one-off police investigations.

As for how many episodes we can expected from the next season, Kelly has suggested the length of each new Criminal outing might continue to vary in future. “It’s a very unique show in many ways and one of those ways is that… I know it is billed as seasons, but we did three episodes in the first season, this one’s four [episodes]… the way it’s set up is that we could come back and just do one, or we could do six, or we could leave it for a couple of years and then return to it.”

Criminal UK Season 3: Trailer
