DCI Banks has become a firm favorite amongst the ITV Drama audience and I’m very pleased we have commissioned a third series,” said Tompkinson.

“The new stories will pose searching questions for Banks as ultimately he’s forced to take extreme action to keep his team together.”

Executive producer Andy Harries added: “I’m delighted by the continued success of DCI Banks.

“Stephen Tompkinson and the whole team have turned a hit series of novels into an international success story that began, like so many of the great TV detectives, on ITV.”

Based on the novels by Peter Robinson, the stories Wednesday’s ChildPiece of My Heart and Bad Boy will each be told over two episodes.

Filming will start in August in Yorkshire and the series has been commissioned for ITV by director of drama commissioning Steve November.

The series sees the return of DS Annie Cabbot (Lowe) from maternity leave, while DI Helen Morton (Catz) remains as part of Banks’s team. It also introduces Banks’s university dropout daughter Tracy.
