The third season of BBC One’s Last Tango In Halifax will premiere on Sunday December 28th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created by Sally Wainwright, Last Tango In Halifax follows Alan Buttershaw and Celia Dawson, two widowers in their 70s who, when their grandchildren put them on Facebook, rediscover feelings for one another that are just as intense and beautiful now as they were 60 years ago when they were teenagers. The drama series is produced by Red Production Company and stars Derek Jacobi, Anne Reid, Nicola Walker, Sarah Lancashire, Tony Gardner, Dean Andrews and Ronni Ancona.
Season three picks up with Alan and Celia enjoying their time as a married couple. However, the honeymoon period quickly ends when Alan’s world is shaken by someone from his past, causing a rift between him and his beloved Celia. Joining the cast as a regular this season is Sherlock alum Rupert Graves. He first appears in the season opener as Gary Jackson, who goes on a date with Gillian but may not be all that he seems.
