It has been announced that Happy Valley has been renewed for a third and final season. The news comes over five years after the acclaimed British drama wrapped its sophomore run.

The BBC One original series follows Catherine Cawood, a strong-willed police sergeant in West Yorkshire who is still coming to terms with the suicide of her teenage daughter. Divorced from her husband and living with her sister, Catherine is helping to raise her grandson while dealing with personal issues and fighting crime in the area that sometimes hits too close to home.

Six final episodes have been ordered to conclude Happy Valley, which will air its third season stateside exclusively on AMC+. Filming is set to begin in early 2022, with an expected premiere later in the year.
