Filming on BBC One's Strike: Lethal White has begun filming, to air in 2020.

It's the fourth instalment in the TV adaptions of J.K. Rowling’s best-selling crime novels written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.


Tom Burke (Cormoran Strike) and Holliday Grainger (Robin Ellacott) will return for the four-part series in 2020.

Burke (The Souvenir, War And Peace) and Grainger (Animals, The Capture) lead a cast of acclaimed British actors including Robert Glenister. Natasha O’Keeffe (Peaky Blinders, Sherlock) and Kerr Logan (Alias Grace, London Irish) also return as Strike’s ex-girlfriend and Robin’s fiancé respectively.

A synopsis for the upcoming episodes reveals: "In the grips of psychosis, a young man named Billy Knight (Joseph Quinn) arrives in private detective Cormoran Strike’s (Tom Burke) office telling the story of a child he saw strangled many years ago.

"Strike is simultaneously hired by government minister Jasper Chiswell (Robert Glenister) to investigate Billy’s brother, Jimmy Knight (Nick Blood), who is blackmailing him. As Strike and his partner Robin work to determine how the cases might be connected, Robin goes undercover in the House of Commons.

"However, Robin’s private life is unravelling as her relationship with Matthew (Kerr Logan) feels the full strain of her commitment to Strike and her work. At the same time, Strike has his own issues, a girlfriend who confesses she loves him and his complicated ex Charlotte (Natasha O’Keeffe) who is pregnant and back in the frame."

The full past three series of Strike (Career Of Evil, The Cuckoo’s Calling, The Silkworm) are available on DVD here.


The episodes aired to more than 7 million viewers on BBC One.

Strike: Lethal White will air on BBC One in 2020.
