Doctor Foster looks set to return for season 3
Doctor Foster will reportedly return for a third series.
After winning Best Drama at the National Television Awards on Tuesday night, the hugely successful BBC series looks set to return for a third instalment.
According to reports, show creators have been given the “green light” to go ahead with the next series.
A BBC source told The Sun: “After its ratings success last year commissioners were always keen for it to come back and although its early days they have given it the green light.”
However, Doctor Foster‘s leading actor Surrane Jones is said to be “extremely busy” at present.
The insider added: “Suranne is extremely busy with other projects at the moment but bosses are trying to pin her down for some potential filming dates.
“It’s looking like it would film next year at the earliest.”
Jones herself previously spoke about the possibility of a third series. She said: “You should never say never because if I say I’m not doing it, then I rule that out, so I’m not saying no. But we’re busy. I’m filming until December 2018, so I’m not even free until 2019.”
The actor, who plays GP Gemma Foster in the BBC drama, also won big at the NTAs, taking home the prize for Best Drama Performance.
