‘Back to Life’ to return for season 3?
The dark comedy provides a fascinating narrative that balances optimism with an ever-present sense of hopelessness. The series is well-known for its balanced humour. It also highlights Miri Matteson’s experiences, which serve to make her a beloved character.
There has currently been no formal confirmation of a third series. But the creator and star Daisy Haggard has said that she is open to returning for a third season.
Haggard revealed exclusively to RadioTimes.com that she already has a definite concept of what will happen in season three.
“I knew how season two was going to end precisely. I just knew. But there is always a possibility for more. These first two seasons cover her immediate departure. Her immediate period of having left prison. So, me and Laura Solon were chatting the other day, and we were like, ‘If we actually do a season three?’ We got all excited.”
Haggard went on to say that they had a very good concept of what that would be as well. But she likes it when things get completed so that they may feel satisfied and plan the ending. But she believed there was a small dot dot dot of room for more. They still have the impression that they have consumed something.
‘Back To Life’ Season 3 Release Date
‘Back to Life’ first aired on BBC Three in April 2019 but owing to the coronavirus pandemic, season 2 two did not arrive until August 31st, 2021.
The series stars Daisy Haggard as Miri Matteson. It also includes Geraldine James as Caroline Matteson, Miri’s mother, Richard Durden as Oscar Matteson, Miri’s father, Adeel Akhtar as Billy, Miri’s burgeoning love interest, and Jo Martin as Janice, Miri’s probation officer. Hence we can expect them to return for season 3 of ‘Back to Life’.
We also know that Adrian Edmondson will not reprise his role as Lara’s police officer father John because his murder case was a big storey point in ‘Back to Life’ Season two. But he could appear in flashbacks, just like the character of Imogen Gurney in the first series.
We might also see Jamie Michie as Dom, Christine Bottomley as Mandy, Juliet Cowan as Tina, Miri’s childhood rival, Imogen Gurney as Lara, Liam Williams as Nathan, Souad Adel Faress as Anna, and Candid Feys as Samuel.
‘Back To Life’ Season 3 Plot
Miri Matteson has recently returned home to Hythe, Kent, after serving an eighteen-year prison sentence. She tries to adapt to real life while dealing with conflicts from her social group. When she first came out, she had no job or ambitions. Miri just jumbled a set of connections with her family and friends. However, we see her struggle during the season, eventually catching up to life despite significant challenges. As Miri works to improve her life, she develops a connection with Billy, who is obsessed with the elderly lady next door. She even reconciled with Mandy.
The first and second seasons of the series ‘Back to Life’ included six episodes each. Hence, the third season can also be expected to include six episodes. ‘Back to Life’ has a 7.5 out of 10 rating on IMDb. While these figures do not account for additional delayed or streamed viewing, they are a good measure of how a show is doing. Still, we can look forward to the announcement of season three very soon! Tell us in the comments whether you are looking forward to the next season of ‘Back to Life’!
