Returning: Last Tango in Halifax
Anne Reid and Derek Jacobi are back for season three next week on ABC.
Childhood sweethearts Celia and Alan, reunited after nearly 60 years apart, return for the third season of Last Tango in Halifax next week on ABC.
Featuring Anne Reid and Derek Jacobi, this season aired in the UK in December.
A fourth season was announced earlier this year.
This series of this acclaimed ensemble drama sees Celia (Anne Reid) and Alan’s (Derek Jacobi) marriage tested by revelations about an incident in his past. As his daughter Gillian (Nicole Walker) tries to deal with the dramas of her own complicated love life, Caroline (Sarah Lancaster) has settled into happy domesticity with pregnant partner Kate (Nina Sosanya).
But her life is thrown into turmoil by sudden and tragic events and, despite feeling angry about her mother’s absence from her wedding, Caroline needs Celia and stepdad Alan more than ever.
In episode one, the action begins on Valentine’s Day, when Gillian is enjoying a date with a handsome man from Halifax. But as the evening draws on, things aren’t quite what they seem with the charming Gary (Rupert Graves).
Alan and Celia plan a honeymoon adventure to New Zealand to visit his brother Ted, although their happiness is short-lived with the unexpected appearance of someone from Alan’s past. Caroline proposes to a heavily pregnant Kate, while her ex-husband John (Tony Gardner) turns up with bad news.
7:30pm Saturday August 15 ABC.
