Channel 4 has renewed high school drama Ackley Bridge for another season. Eight episodes have been ordered for the show's third season, which is set to premiere in 2019. That is up from the six episodes that comprised season one, but down slightly from the twelve episode order for season two. The renewal comes on the heels of last night's season two finale.
