Following the season 2 finale today at BBC One, is there a chance that we will see The Responder season 3 happen? It is a worthy subject of conversation, mostly because this is not only is this a show with a dedicated audience, but it also has a prominent male lead in Martin Freeman. There are reasons aplenty to imagine that the powers-that-be at the British network would want the series back for more.

Now that we have said all of this, here is where things stand at present: Nothing has been decided, at least as of yet. The reality in regards to British networks in particular is that they do often take their time in order to formulate decisions on their programming, and the same could be said here. There are also plenty of series that often do end significantly earlier than you would expect, and Freeman himself has been a part of some of these very projects.

For now, the only advice that is best to hand down here is to of course watch The Responder, but also recommend the series to more of your friends and loved ones. The greater accumulation of people who watch this show, the more likely it ultimately is that we see it come back for more. That obviously means those who watch it live on BBC One, but also via the iPlayer, as well.

This feels like the sort of show that in theory, could go on forever. Since when are police-themed dramas ever going to go out of style? Suffice it to say, they aren’t. The only advice you can give to a series like this is to find a way to constantly keep things fresh, and that includes continuing to deliver new twists and turns every single step of the way.
