Marcella returned to ITV for season 3 in January 2021 but has the drama been renewed for season 4? Does the ending of series 3 set up more episodes?
ITV’s Marcella is back on our screens in January 2021 for the thriller’s third series.
However, as well as airing on ITV, all eight episodes of the new season are available to stream now on ITV Hub.
As a result, fans who have been binging their way through have been left asking if Marcella will return for season 4.
Marcella season 3 on ITV
After airing on Netflix internationally in June 2020, season 3 of Marcella finally premiered on ITV on Tuesday, January 26th, 2021.
After the horrors of season 2, the new batch of eight episodes sees Marcella assume a new identity, Keira Devlin.
She is now working undercover in Northern Ireland and must get close to the almost invincible Maguire crime family.
Is Marcella renewed for season 4?
- Marcella has not been renewed for season 3 at the time of writing but it’s not been officially cancelled either.
This is hardly surprising given that the series has only just returned to ITV for season 3.
When Marcella was originally renewed for season 3, the announcement was made in October 2018, four months after the previous season had come to an end.
If something similar was to happen, we could get an announcement in a few months time.
But does the ending of Marcella season 3 set up another instlament?
Does season 3’s ending set up season 4?
- The possibility for more episodes is left decidedly ambiguous by season 3’s ending.
Marcella, now going under the name Miss Hart and with the Maguire family dealt with, receives a phone call while waiting at the airport.
However, before she can be dragged back into working on another case, she hangs up the phone and leaves to board her plane, flying off to an unknown destination.
While the ending shows that Marcella is still in demand, her refusal to answer the call does suggest that Marcella’s story is over, at least for the time being.
Marcella season 3 is airing weekly on ITV while the full eight-episode series is available to stream now on ITV Hub.
