The Sky original production Tin Star has been commissioned for a third season, which will bring the show to its conclusion.

Tim Roth, Genevieve O’Reilly and Abigail Lawrie return as the Worth family in the final chapter of the trilogy, produced by Kudos and Gaumont UK and created by Rowan Joffe. The third installment, with six hour-long episodes, will go into production later this year.

Cameron Roach, director of drama at Sky, said: “We are thrilled to announce a final season of Tin Star. The combination of Rowan’s imagination and the central performances led by Tim Roth mark Tin Star as a standout example of British creativity. Returning alongside our original series such as Britannia and Riviera, as well as forthcoming titles Catherine the Great, Little Birds and Gangs of London, we’re demonstrating our commitment to bring ambitious local stories with global appeal to Sky customers.”

Alison Jackson, president at Gaumont UK, said: “I’m so thrilled to be able to continue my relationship with Tin Star while in my new role. Having the show as Gaumont’s first U.K. co-production is terrific. Bringing the narrative of the show back to the U.K. gives us an exciting opportunity to surprise our audience and give the Worth family an even bigger and more unexpected challenge this season! I look forward to spending more time with the amazing characters established so beautifully by our cast in seasons one and two.”

Martin Haines, co-managing director of Kudos, said: “We love the Worth family and their special brand of mayhem as much as viewers do and we’re really thrilled at the prospect of being able to join them for a third series to delve deeper into the secrets of their anarchic past; it’s sure to be another thrill ride.”

Joffe added: “A show creator and writer’s work is only as good as his team: and I am very grateful to have another chance to write for Tim Roth, Genevieve O’Reilly and Abigail Lawrie and executive producer Alison Jackson. An awe-inspiring roster of talent and a chance to deliver our best season yet.”
