Happy Valley Season 3 was announced back in October 2021 with filming planned to begin in early 2022. So considering that, we can expect the third season to release sometime towards the end of 2022 or the first half of 2023.

Coming to the plot, there is a possibility that Ryan will finally get to know more about Tommy and the things he is capable of. Moreover, he raped Ryan’s mother, Catherine’s daughter, eventually leading to her pregnancy and taking her own life.

James Norton will play the role of Tommy Lee Royce

With retirement on the horizon, we will get to see if she would make out of the force alive. In all these years, what we have learned from movies is that a police officer’s most dangerous case is the one last job they do before their retirement.
