The BBC has announced that the sixth season of its hit police corruption drama Course of action will be extended by one episode.
The World Productions series, which plays on Netflix in a number of major territories and features on BritBox and Acorn TV in the US, will run for seven episodes instead of six when it returns this year.
Announcing the extension, the BBC said season 6 of Jed Mercurio’s show would debut “soon”. It follows production delayed last March by the coronavirus pandemic.
Here’s a short clip announcing the expansion, starring Adrian Dunbar (Superintendent Ted Hastings) and Martin Compston (Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott):
Listen, guys. When the blunderer asks for more, it is better to deliver.
