The BBC has reversed course on Doctor Foster, renewing the show for Season/Series 3, to potentially air during the 2019-20 season, according to reports.
The show creators have been given the “green light” to move forward with the third chapter in the series, per a BBC source:
“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.”
The renewal is dependent upon Doctor Foster‘s “extremely busy” lead Surrane Jones finding time to film the third season, per the insider:
“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.”
