Vera series 11 release date


Here’s all you need to know about the new series of Vera on ITV.

Brenda Blethyn will reprise her role in six feature length episodes of award-winning drama Vera in Series 11.

The first two episodes aired in August 2021 followed by the next two in January 2022.

The final two episodes of the six part series are expected to air later this year but a release date has yet to be announced.

As always, the six self-contained crime stories will be inspired by the best-selling novels and characters created by acclaimed crime writer Ann Cleeves, who received the Diamond Dagger Award at the Crime Writer’s Association in 2017 for a lifetime achievement for sustained excellence.

Alongside Blethyn as Vera, the cast will see Kenny Doughty return as Detective Sergeant Aiden Healy, Jon Morrison as DC Kenny Lockhart, Riley Jones as DC Mark Edwards and Ibinabo Jack as DC Jacqueline Williams.

Filming will follow all of the latest health and safety protocols.

Brenda Blethyn said: “I’m really looking forward to working on the next series of Vera.

“The safety of all personnel is always at the forefront of production, and with all the extra precautions in place we will relish creating and delivering six cracking new episodes.”

ITV’s Drama Commissioner Huw Kennair Jones said: “Vera is one of ITV Drama’s most loved series so we’re delighted it’s returning to production.

“We can’t wait to welcome the brilliant Brenda Blethyn and the rest of the cast back on to our screens for what promises to be an exceptional series eleven.”
