ITV has confirmed when the next episode of its hit drama Grace will be on TV.
The series stars John Simm as Brighton-based Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, adapted from bestselling author Peter James’ award winning novels.
After first debuting last year, a brand new series of episodes will air this Spring.
Grace next episode air date
The next episode of Grace will air on Sunday, 22 May at 8PM on ITV and ITV Hub.
Titled Dead Tomorrow, a teaser for the episode shares: “When a body is dredged up from the seabed of the English Channel, it sets in motion a truly disturbing investigation which forces Grace to ask himself just how far anyone might go to save the ones they love.”
Alongside John Simm, the show co-stars Richie Campbell as DS Glenn Branson and Rakie Ayola as ACC Vosper.
After originally being commissioned for two episodes, ITV previously confirmed the show will return for three new instalments with filming taking place in Brighton.
The new episodes of Grace are made up of three brand new two-hour films, entitled Not Dead Enough, Dead Man’s Footsteps and Dead Tomorrow.
The episodes will see Arthur Darvill (World on Fire, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Broadchurch) guest star in the first film with Zoe Tapper (The One, Liar, Nightflyers) also joining the cast as recurring character, Cleo Morey, a mortuary technician, who takes a shine to Grace.
ITV’s Head of Drama Polly Hill commented: “We are delighted to be adapting more of Peter James’ wonderful novels. John Simm has brilliantly brought the much-loved Detective Superintendent Roy Grace to screen and there are many more cases for the audiences to enjoy.”
John Simm said: “Everyone involved with Grace is very excited to be back in Brighton bringing the next three Peter James novels to the screen. Like the first two, they’ve been brilliantly adapted by Russell Lewis and we can’t wait to get started.”
