THE Bay has proven to be a huge hit for ITV since the first series aired in 2017.
The TV series based on Morecambe is now back for a third season and has a new woman in charge.
What is The Bay on ITV about?
Bay season three gives the audience a whole new story.
New to town, DS Jenn Townsend was immediately thrown into the abyss, when a body was found in the bay on her first day on the job.
She is subject to a grieving and complicated family if she has any chance to deal with the premature death of an aspiring young boxer.
While she’s eager to give her family answers, she also needs to prove herself the newest on the team.
The pressure multiplies as her newly incorporated family struggles to settle down in Morecambe.
This leads her to think that a fresh start might not be as simple as moving to another town.
When does The Bay on ITV start?
The first episode of The Bay airs TONIGHT (January 12, 2022) at 9pm on ITV.
Speaking about the new series, ITV Head of Drama, Polly Hill, said: “We are delighted with the audience response to The Bay.
“We look forward to them meeting DS Jenn Townsend played by the brilliant Marsha Thomason, who joins the team in series 3.”

Why did Morven Christie leave The Bay?
After two successful series on The Bay, Scottish actress Morven decided to leave the show without giving a reason.
The show’s producers told ITV: “The show’s producers thank Morven for her wonderful contributions to The Bay and wish her every success in the future.
“While the show’s DNA remains the same, the change of narrator offers an exciting opportunity to put a new character at the heart of the series and explore the world of Morecambe from a fresh perspective.”
