Season three of Ashes To Ashes hits UK screens soon with Philip Glenister and Keeley Hawes reprising their roles as DCI Gene Hunt and DI Alex Drake.
The 8-episode third season remains rooted in the 1980s.
The final season also includes Dean Andrews as DI Ray Carling, Marshall Lancaster as DC Chris Skelton and Montserrat Lombard as WPC Sharon ‘Shaz’ Granger. Daniel Mays (The Street, Plus One) joins the series as Discipline and Complaints officer, Jim Keats, in what promises to be an unsettling twist to the team dynamic.
The series will also answer questions about Sam Tyler (John Simm).
“The end of Ashes to Ashes will also bring in some of the mythology of Life on Mars. So it will be the end of a 5 year journey really,” writer Ashley Pharoah told TV Tonight last August.
No word yet when ABC will air this in Australia.
