Speaking about the final season, Morgan said: “It’s great to be back writing for the Defoe Family, and to dive once more into to the complications of their lives and those of their clients.

"In the final series of this bittersweet trilogy, Hannah faces the heartbreak of her own divorce, and the fight to save her family and her marriage.

"Siblings clash, past mistakes are exposed and hearts are broken as Noble Hale and Defoe notches up more billable hours in the divorce capital of the world.”

What happens in The Split season 3?

The Split is set in the fast-paced, intense world of London's high-end divorce circuit.

It is a multilayered and witty exploration of modern marriage and the legacy of divorce.

It follows the lives of three Defoe sisters, Hannah (Nicola Walker), Nina (Annabel Scholey) and Rose (Fiona Button) and their formidable mother Ruth (Deborah Findlay).

Viewers last saw how Hannah's solid marriage to Nathan, played by Stephen Mangan, fell apart due to her affair with her previous partner Christie (Barry Atsma).

The new series will see Christie return, who is sure to make matters worse.

Will Hannah and Nathan be able to put the mistakes made in the past or will this be the end of the road?

The BBC teases a “shocking revelation that dramatically changes the stakes", adding: “Battle lines are redrawn, their dream of achieving the ‘good divorce’ is left in tatters.”
