Top TV Returning this Autumn Posted On 04 September 2020

As a result of the pandemic, many scheduled shows have not been able to go ahead as planned, and thus, weve been starved of our regular ‘new’ TV fix.

 

However, as we approach the busy Autumn period, thankfully some of our returning favourites had managed to complete filming before the full force of the pandemic was felt. Therefore, we’ve picked out a handful of the must-watch shows that are still planning to return to our screens in Autumn 2020.

 

His Dark Materials – BBC One

The fantasy drama series based on the books of the same name by Phillip Pullman will return for a second series. The show, which was renewed before the first series even aired has been received well and will boast more huge names including Andrew Scott (Sherlock), and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), who have been added to the already star-studded cast, which includes Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton), and James McAvoy (Atonement).

 

Marcella – ITV

 The third series of this Anna Friel led show had already finished filming when the pandemic hit. It’s been teased that in the new series Marcella has assumed an undercover identity in Northern Ireland. And after the pain-staking cliff-hanger back in 2018, it looks like fans won’t have too much longer to wait to be gripped by this drama, once again.

 

Derry Girls – Channel 4

 Channel 4’s hit comedy set in 90s Northern Ireland had to pause filming with immediate effect as a direct result of the pandemic. But as yet, there is no official statement to say that series three will not still be released this year. The most-watched show in Northern Ireland since records began, Derry Girls season 3 should have all the usual shenanigans that we’ve come to expect as it follows a group of girls who attempt to navigate their way through their teenage years.

 

The Great British Bake-Off – Channel 4

 Rather than attempt to reschedule a lot of the summer shows have decided to completely postpone until 2021 and it looked like The Great British Bake-Off had followed suit. However, it has been announced that filming is currently taking place on a fourth Channel 4 series, and mammoth eleventh overall. And even if strict rules are in place to prevent the famous Paul Hollywood handshake, it’ll still be good to have a more festive version of the Bake-Off back this year.
