Olivia Colman and David Tennant will be back in Broadchurch this coming January, two new teaser trailers have confirmed.

The ITV crime drama follows detectives Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller in their investigations and last spring attracted huge audiences with its gripping ‘Who killed 11-year-old Danny Latimer?’ storyline.

“There was a boy and he was killed. I caught the killer, so why am I still here?” asks Alec in one short clip, which aired on Sunday during I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

Another sees Ellie, who was left devastated by the murderer’s identity at the end of last series, saying in voiceover: “There was a boy and he was killed. What happened then destroyed my family, my job and my town. So what do I do now?”

Both teasers show Alec and Ellie staring mournfully out to sea from the top of a stretch of unspecified coastline.

Writer Chris Chibnall has returned to pen the follow-up but details of the plot are being kept tightly under wraps.

Andrew Buchan, Jodie Whittaker and Arthur Davill are reprising their roles while Eve Myles, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Meera Syal, James D’Arcy and Charlotte Rampling join the cast afresh.


Since the first Broadchurch aired, Tennant has taken part in US remake Gracepoint, starring as Detective Emmett Carver alongside Breaking Bad’s Anna Gunn.
