BBC One drama The Split is returning for its third and final series.
The upcoming last chapter will see Nicola Walker and Stephen Mangan reprise their roles of Hannah and Nathan Stern, with Annabel Scholey, Fiona Button, Deborah Findlay and Chukwudi Iwuji also making a comeback.
Abi Morgan’s acclaimed show is set to conclude proceedings with the most dramatic and heartbreaking instalment to date as audiences watch divorce lawyer Hannah confronted with her own divorce.
Fans were left devastated in series two as Hannah and Nathan’s formerly rock-solid marriage finally fell apart as the depth of Hannah’s betrayal was revealed.
Ten months on, the two professional divorce lawyers have been respectfully negotiating their separation and seemed to have reached an amicable agreement.
As she and Nathan begin to divide up their 20 years together, Hannah faces what she is about to lose. However, a shocking revelation dramatically changes the stakes.
And, as the battle lines are redrawn, their dream of achieving the ‘good divorce’ is left in tatters.
As Hannah and Nathan prepare to go head to head in the legal fight of their lives, will they find a path through the wreckage, or is The Split simply too deep to repair?
The Split is an authentic, multi-layered, witty examination of modern marriage and the legacy of divorce.
The first series arrived in 2018 and fans eagerly waited two years for the next chapter.
The second series of The Split, which averaged over 6million viewers and over 19million streams, became the third most-watched drama series on BBC iPlayer in 2020.
