Criminal returned to Netflix today (September 16) with its second season of the crime drama which all takes place in an interrogation room. The latest outing introduced four new suspects and starred actors like Kit Harington and Sophie Okonedo. However, fans who have already binged the series are eager to know whether it will be coming back again.

Will there be another series of Criminal?

Netflix’s tense drama Criminal follows different suspects as they are brought in for interrogation.

The first outing of the series landed on the platform in 2019 and featured three major stars as the criminals in question.

Now the show has dropped its second season on Netflix, which follows four new suspects.

Starring Kit Harington, Sharon Horgan, Kunal Nayyar and Sophie Okonedo, the latest outing is just as exciting as the first.

However, as there are only four episodes for viewers to watch, those who have already binge-watched the show have been left wondering about its future.

So far, Netflix has not renewed the show for a third season on the platform.

But this is not unusual as the steamer usually waits a few months to decide on the future of its shows.

As well as this, the cast has teased they would love to come back for more episodes.

Speaking to Radio Times, Natalie Hobbs star Katherine Kelly said: “It’s a very unique show in many ways and one of those ways is that I know it is billed as seasons, but we did three episodes in the first season, this one’s four.

“The way it’s set up is that we could come back and just do one, or we could do six, or we could leave it for a few years and then come back to it.

“It’s got its own unique formula that’s quite unpredictable, so I couldn’t really say what the plan is.

“But I think there is a plan to do more – George [Kay, series writer and co-creator], he’s so brilliant that he’s always thinking about another story, another episode. He’s got so many ideas.”

Express.co.uk will update this article as soon as the show’s future is confirmed by Netflix.

When will Criminal season 3 be released?

Given the show has not been officially greenlit for a third season, it is difficult to predict when it will be out.

However, based on the previous two outings on Netflix, the show could be released in September 2021.

This is because both seasons one and two landed on the platform in September.

This will be dependent on whether filming would be able to begin as planned within restrictions brought in by coronavirus COVID-19.

However, the show is also sure to feature some major guest stars when it returns as well to follow in the footsteps of actors like David Tennant and Hayley Atwell.

Speaking about who they would love to star in a potential third outing, the stars of the show opened up to Radio Times.

Ingleby said: “I just want my heroes to be in front of me so I’d have [Anthony] Hopkins, get him in, or Judi Dench, that’d be interesting wouldn’t it?”

While Kelly added: “Fiona Shaw, I’d love Fiona Shaw. She’d be fantastic, wouldn’t she? Kathy Burke! Or Michaela Coel.”

Sandall also said: “I’d like to see somebody like Johnny Harris, or Paddy Considine – people who have got an incredible pull and focus on-screen.”
