The Split stars Deborah Findley and Barry Atsma have addressed whether there could ever be another season of the hit BBC divorce drama.
The latest season of The Split has been the most dramatic yet, as fans have watched Nathan (Stephen Mangan) and Hannah Stern (Nicola Walker) navigate a complex divorce.
Nathan has found himself expecting another baby with his new girlfriend Kate (Lara Pulver) as Hannah tries to work out if a romance with old flame Christie Carmichael (Atsma) could ever work.
Meanwhile, Hannah’s sisters have had to deal with issues of their own.
We saw scammer Tyler (Damien Molony) leave both his husband Zander Hale (Chukwudi Iwuji) and secret love Nina (Annabel Scholey) heartbroken as he fleeced the latter for her money.
Rose (Fiona Button) has been consumed in her grief following the sudden death of her husband James (Rudi Dharmalingam), who was killed in a road accident.
But with just one episode left, fans are desperate to know whether there might be more of the drama to come.
Will there be a season 4?
There are currently no plans for a season four, with creator Abi Morgan previously confirming proceedings would be ended with the third.
However, Deborah, who plays Hannah’s fiercely independent mother Ruth Defoe, has teased to us that she believes the story ‘isn’t yet over,’ while co-star Barry suggested ‘it would be back in 10 years.’
Chatting to Metro.co.uk earlier this year, she shared: ‘I don’t think the story’s over yet. I think the series is over, but I don’t think… there’s a lot more to go with everybody’s character, which is why it’s so brilliant. And certainly think Ruth might do different things if there was a future world.
Barry said of the writer’s talent: ‘Abi is one of the few writers I would trust to write something brilliantly for a fourth season. She’s so real, she wouldn’t have a problem writing something that would just be amazing again, but [finishing it here] is also good, and gives it good energy.
‘I did one series before in Germany, which just ran season after season and then somehow slipped a bit and then it was not that fun anymore.’
He went on to add: ‘It’s good to say, “Well, this is it,” we thoroughly enjoyed it because of that also.’
Deborah weighed in: ‘It’s not ended. There isn’t any more, all the things aren’t tied up neatly.’
‘It will be back in 10 years,’ Barry teased.
But unfortunately, things are being left alone for now, with Monday’s finale the last episode of the brilliant drama.
