The BBC and Sister have debuted the trailer for the third season of ‘The Split’ which will launch on BBC One on 4th April 2022 at 9PM.
Returning for its third and final series, Hannah Stern makes the risky decision to leave her family firm for a competitor in a steamy legal drama about divorce – in and out of the courtroom.
Set in the fast-paced, complex world of London’s high-end divorce circuit, the series is an authentic, multi-layered, witty examination of modern marriage and the legacy of divorce. Following the messy lives of the three Defoe sisters, Hannah (Nicola Walker), Nina (Annabel Scholey) and Rose (Fiona Button) and their formidable mother Ruth (Deborah Findlay), Abi Morgan is set to conclude the trilogy with the most dramatic and heartbreaking series to date as we watch a divorce lawyer confronted by her very own divorce.
Adding fuel to the fire, the catalyst to the breakdown of Hannah and Nathan’s marriage, Christie (Barry Atsma), will also return to the final series, which sees Hannah and Nathan’s formerly rock-solid marriage unravel as they try to come to an amicable separation agreement.
As Hannah and Nathan begin to divide up their twenty years together, Hannah faces what she is about to lose and a shocking revelation dramatically changes the stakes. As the battle lines are redrawn, we wonder if their dream of achieving the “good divorce” is even possible. Will they find a path through the wreckage, or is The Split simply too deep to repair?
Created and written by Abi Morgan, Dee Koppang O’Leary (Bridgerton, The Crown) boards as the lead director with Sumrah Mohammed and Emma Genders producing.
All episodes will also be available on BBC iPlayer from 4th April.
