ITV has commissioned a fifth series of The Bay.

The fifth series will see the latest case for Morecambe MIU focusing on the emotionally complex life of a divided family. With the father and mother of the victim, bitterly divorced, Jenn Townsend (Marsha Thomason) and the team will have to tread very carefully to keep the whole family onside.

ITV’s Head of Drama Polly Hill commented: 

“We’re delighted to be returning to Morecambe for another series of The Bay. The series is a huge success story for ITV and we’re grateful to Catherine Oldfield, Daragh Carville and the team at Tall Story Pictures for continuing to create compelling stories and characters.”

Set in Morecambe, the crime drama initially starred Morven Christie as DS Lisa Armstrong. Morven left the show after the second series and was replaced by Marsha Thomason who plays DS Jenn Townsend. The cast also includes Daniel Ryan, Andrew Dowbiggin, Thomas Law and Erin Shanagher.

ITV Studios’ Tall Story Pictures produces the series, which is written by Daragh Carville.

Catherine Oldfield, Executive Producer, Tall Story Pictures said: 

“Daragh and I couldn’t be happier to be heading back to Morecambe with Marsha and the team for another case. We love making the show and so we’re delighted to be producing another series for ITV and viewers at home and abroad.“

Filming begins later this year on the new series.
