‘Guilt’ Season 3 release date: ‘Downton Abbey’ star returns in final season

The BBC has announced that Guilt will be back soon!

Written and created by Neil Forsyth, the Scottish thriller series debuted in the UK back in 2019.

Forsyth is fresh from the tremendous success of BBC One’s hit heist drama The Gold this winter, which he also wrote.

The third season of Guilt – which will be the show’s last – sees Mark Bonnar and Jamie Sives reprise their roles as brothers Max and Jake.

They’re joined once again by Downton Abbey star Phyllis Logan as Maggie, following her character’s debut in the second season.

Best known for her role as Downton‘s Mrs Hughes, Logan previously chatted about her Guilt role in this great interview.

Also returning in Season 3 are Emun Elliot (The Paradise), Greg McHugh (The A List), Ellie Haddington (Motherland), Sara Vickers (The Crown), and Henry Pettigrew (The Crown).

Rounding out the cast are David Hayman (Help), Amelia Isaac Jones (Beast of Burden), Tamsin Toploski (Slow Horses), Isaura Barbé-Brown (The Gold), Euan MacNaughton (Outlander), Anita Vettesse (Vigil), and Anders Hayward (Life After Life).

When’s the release date?

The BBC has officially revealed that Guilt will return at 9pm on Thursday 27th April on BBC Two.

Scottish fans will get the new season a couple of days earlier at 10pm on Tuesday 25th April on BBC Scotland.

All four episodes will be streaming on BBC iPlayer after the first episode airs on TV.

Season 3 is expected to air in the US later this year on Sunday nights on PBS Masterpiece.

American viewers can catch up on the first two seasons with this free 7-day trial of the PBS Masterpiece channel on Amazon Prime!

We’ve got a first look image from the final season of Guilt here:

The final chapter of the trilogy will find the brothers reunited, but “with enemies old and new causing them to seek ever more desperate solutions to their problems.”

The official synopsis continues: “Digging deep into their past, Max and Jake hope to finally find a future free of danger… and each other.”

Guilt writer Neil Forsyth’s The Gold concluded in the UK last weekend.

The mini-series will premiere in the US on Paramount+ later in 2023.

Guilt is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
