Posted Filed under

Series 3 of The A Word will begin in May on BBC One…

BBC One’s autism drama series The A Word, which stars Max Vento, Morven Christie, Lee Ingleby, Molly Wright, Pooky Quesnel, Leon Harrop and Christopher Eccleston, will be back next month, and the Beeb has unveiled a first trailer to drum up excitement for fans of the show.

Here’s a synopsis for series 3:

“Two years have passed and things have changed for our A Word family. Joe is 10 and living in two places at once, processing the seismic change in his life through the filter of his autism. Alison and Paul are divorced and live 100 miles apart. Nicola has moved to London. Eddie lives with his dad. Rebecca has just realised she’s pregnant. Only Maurice is holding it together. And if Maurice is the one holding it together, you know you are in trouble. A family is always a puzzle and this one needs piecing back together, albeit in a different shape.”

Series 3 adds Julie Hesmondhalgh (Broadchurch), Sarah Gordy (Call The Midwife) and David Gyasi (Troy: Fall of a City).

A premiere date has been set for Tuesday May 5th at 9pm.
