Keeping Faith: How many episodes left? Is season 3 confirmed?

Keeping Faith

Series 2 of Keeping Faith continues on BBC One but how many episodes are left in the series? More importantly, are we getting a series 3?

BBC One's Keeping Faith may only have returned for its second series on July 23rd but attention is already starting to turn towards the final few episodes in the current series and whether or not the show will be renewed for a third series.

With plenty of drama coming to the fore on the BBC in recent years, there's always space for more Keeping Faith if the series can gain enough of an audience to warrant more episodes.

But what are the chances of a third series and how many episodes are left in the ongoing second series?

What's Keeping Faith about?

Keeping Faith, which is filmed concurrently with the Welsh language version of the programme Un Bore Mercher, tells the story of Faith (Eve Myles), a small-town lawyer at a family-run firm.

However, Faith has to cut short her much-needed maternity leave after her partner, Evan, disappears shortly after the birth of the pair's third child. 

As the reasons behind his disappearance become ever clearer, Faith must find a way to protect her family and her sanity.

How many episodes left in series 2?

Series 2 of Keeping Faith returned to BBC One on July 23rd, 2019, just over a year after the first series hit our screens. 

However, unlike the first series, which consisted of eight episodes, Keeping Faith's second series only has six episodes.

That means following the broadcast of August 13th's fourth episode, there will only be two episodes of the series left to watch.

Is season 3 on its way?

Once the second series does come to an end, attention will surely turn towards a third series of Keeping Faith.

However, at the time of writing, there is no news on whether the show will return but given the impressive viewing figures that the series has achieved, there is no reason to stop the show now.

While there may be no news on a potential third series as of yet, we'll be sure to update you once we learn anything new about the status of Keeping Faith's third series.

Meanwhile, series 2 of Keeping Faith continues on BBC One at 9pm on Tuesday, August 13th and all episodes of the second series are available to stream now on BBC iPlayer.
