The crime drama, which stars Tim Roth, Genevieve O'Reilly and Abigail Lawrie, will return to Sky Atlantic for another helping, and Rowan Joffe - who is behind the show - claims the last run of episodes will be the "best season yet".

He said: "A show creator and writer's work is only as good as his team: and I am very grateful to have another chance to write for Tim Roth, Genevieve O'Reilly and Abigail Lawrie - and executive producer Alison Jackson.

"An awe-inspiring roster of talent and a chance to deliver our best season yet."

Sky bosses are delighted the final season of 'Tin Star' will air on their network, because they think the writing and performances on the show are a "standout example" of British creativity.

Cameron Roach, director of drama at Sky, said: "We are thrilled to announce a final season of 'Tin Star'.

"The combination of Rowan's imagination and the central performances led by Tim Roth mark 'Tin Star' as a standout example of British creativity.

"Returning alongside our original series such as 'Britannia' and 'Riviera', as well as forthcoming titles 'Catherine the Great', 'Little Birds' and 'Gangs of London', we're demonstrating our commitment to bring ambitious, local, stories with global appeal to Sky customers."

The Gaumont Film Company are also "thrilled" to be co-producing the hit show for another season.

Alison Jackson, president at Gaumont, said: "I'm so thrilled to be able to continue my relationship with 'Tin Star' while in my new role.

"Having the show as Gaumont's first UK co-production is terrific.

"I look forward to spending more time with the amazing characters established so beautifully by our cast in seasons one and two."
