Tin Star is coming to a close.
Sky Atlantic has renewed the Tim Roth fronted drama series for a third and final season. The show’s final season will consist of six episodes and will enter production later this year ahead of a 2020 premiere.
Created by Rowan Joffe, Tin Star tells the story of Jim Worth, an ex-Metropolitan police detective who has moved with his family to the Rocky Mountains to start a new life as a local police chief in an idyllic rural community.
The drama series is produced by Kudos and Gaumont UK and stars Tim Roth, Christina Hendricks, Genevieve O’Reilly, Abigail Lawrie, John Lynch, Anamaria Marinca and Jenessa Grant. The executive producers are Alison Jackson, Paul Gilbert and Rowan Joffe. The third season was commissioned by Sky’s Director of Drama Cameron Roach and Director of Programmes for Sky Entertainment UK & Ireland Zai Bennett.
At the end of season two, Jack (Tim Roth) and Angela (Genevieve O’Reilly) are forced to reveal a devastating truth to daughter Anna (Abigail Lawrie), but the family’s dark history soon catches up with them as their ultimate threat arrives on their doorstep. The show’s final season will be set in and around Liverpool, culminating with the Worth family returning to the UK to confront their menacing past.
“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”, said Sky’s Cameron Roach. “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.”
