Anna Friel is back in Marcella series 3 coming to ITV later this month

Created by Hans Rosenfeldt and Nicola Larder, Marcella stars Emmy® award winner Anna Friel (Butterfly, Broken, American Odyssey) in the title role. Hugo Speer (The Musketeers, Britannia, The Full Monty) and Ray Panthaki (Away, Colette, One Crazy Thing) also return to the series whilst Amanda Burton (Waterloo Road, Silent Witness) joins the drama as the formidable matriarch of the Maguire family. The eight new episodes focus upon Marcella’s new life in Belfast as an undercover detective. She has taken on the identity of Keira and has infiltrated the infamous Maguire family, but as she investigates their activities, questions come to the fore about how much she has embraced Keira’s persona and personality and left Marcella behind.

Along with Amanda Burton as Katherine Maguire, Aaron McCusker (Bohemian Rhapsody, Fortitude, Shameless) plays her son, Finn Maguire while Kelly Gough (The Fall, Broadchurch) plays daughter Stacey. Other cast include Martin McCann, Eugene O’Hare, Michael Colgan, Paul Kennedy and Glen Wallace.

The new series was filmed entirely on location in and around Belfast and will be available on the ITV hub from January 26. Previous series of Marcella are available on Britbox here.
