The series stars Doctor Who and Jessica Jones' David Tennant and The Night Manager's Olivia Colman as Detective Inspector Alec Hardy and Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller. This season they're investigating a new crime, a sexual assault that shocks the tight-knit seaside town of the title.
"There is a bold, new crime story, which forces us to ask whether the town has a crack running through it caused by Danny Latimer's death; is this new crime somehow the long-term legacy of that dark moment?", executive producer Jane Featherstone said in a statement. "Our central characters must contend with this possibility as they battle to make hope, friendship and love triumph over fear and suspicion, as a host of new suspects present themselves."
Season 3 premiered on ITV in February. Broadchurch Season 3 premieres Wednesday, June 28 on BBC America.
