Cubitt stated that this series was conceived "in the hope of further exploring the characters and themes that are at the heart of [the drama]". The episodes are expected to air in 2016, with Cubitt stating he has already envisaged how the show's third series will conclude. Carol Moorhead replaced Julian Stevens as the second producer of the third series. Filming took place in Belfast between December 2015 and April 2016.  The third series will get an exclusive look at the Edinburgh International Television Festival on 25 August 2016 and will premiere in autumn of the same year.
