The third and final season of Broadchurch, ITV’s buzzy detective drama that’s seen rather exceptional highs and depressing lows during its brief run, will finally make its way to the US this Spring. BBC America will premiere Season 3 starting on Wednesday, June 28. So mark your calendars appropriately.

Broadchurch stars Doctor Who’s David Tennant and The Night Manager’s Olivia Colman as Detective Inspector Alec Hardy and Detective Sargeant Ellie Miller. The two partners were brought together after the murder of a young boy rocked a seaside village community. (A lot of other things happened, but if you haven’t seen the show before, it’s best to go in not knowing much.)

It’s become something of a running joke on the internet that the biggest problem mystery series Sherlock has is the fact that its success has transformed its leads into such stars they barely have time to make the show anymore. (Given the fact that we seem to be on a fairly regular two-year-hiatus schedule, the joke isn’t exactly wrong, either.)

You couldn’t turn around without seeing Benedict Cumberbatch in some sort of feature film last year – with major roles in Star Trek Into Darkness, The Fifth Estate, August Osage County, 12 Years a Slave and more, he was kind of everywhere. His co-star Martin Freeman, however, has been pretty tied up playing the world’s most famous hobbit in Peter Jackson’s epic The Hobbit trilogy for the better part of the last three years and, subsequently, we haven’t had the chance to see him as much beyond John Watson and Bilbo Baggins lately.

Well, that’s about to change.
