Following the news that the popular crime drama has been renewed for a third outing, ITV confirmed that Christie would not be back as DS Lisa Armstrong, despite the character leading the previous two instalments.

She is set to be replaced by Marsha Thomason, who is perhaps best known for her roles in Lost and White Collar. The third series is set to start shooting in the spring, as Thomason's character – Family Liaison Officer Jenn Townsend – gets thrown into the deep end when the body of an aspiring young boxer is found on her first day.

Daniel Ryan, Erin Shanagher, Thomas Law and Andrew Dowbiggin will be back as DI Anthony 'Tony' Manning, DS Karen Hobson, DC Eddie Martin and DS James Clarke, respectively.

The Bay's first season, which premiered in March 2019, saw Armstrong assigned to a missing persons investigation in Morecambe Bay, Lancashire. As she dug deeper into the case though, she discovered that she had a personal, potentially compromising, link to the family involved.

Its second series, which kicked off in January, saw her dealing with the fallout, as well as trying to prove herself when she's asked to help solve a murder.
