Happy Valley Season 3 Release Date: When will it air on Netflix?
The showrunners announced Happy Valley Season 3 in October 2021, with filming planned to begin in early 2022. A short clip of Sarah back in her police uniform and filming on location sometimes surfaced, which is a good sign that the show is on its way. Considering that, we can expect the third season to release sometime towards the end of 2022. A conservative approach makes the possibilities higher in early 2023.
Happy Valley season 3 Cast: Who will be in?

Siobhan Finneran (The Stranger), who plays Catherine’s sister Claire will also be on hand for the new episodes. Completing the cast are some returning faces in the shape of Con O’Neill as Clare’s recovering alcoholic boyfriend Neil Ackroyd, George Costigan as Nevison Gallagher, and Irish actress Charlie Murphy as his daughter, Ann.
Also returning are Derek Riddell as Richard Cawood, Karl Davies as Daniel Cawood, Susan Lynch (Citadel) as Alison Garrs, Rick Warden as Mike Taylor, Vincent Franklin as Andy Shepherd and Rhys Connah as Ryan Cawood.

Happy Valley Season 3 Plot: What is going to Happen?
When Catherine discovers the remains of a gangland murder victim in a drained reservoir, it sparks a chain of events that unwittingly leads her straight back to Tommy Lee Royce. Her grandson Ryan is now sixteen and still living with Catherine. Still, he has ideas about what kind of relationship he wants with the man Catherine refuses to acknowledge as his father.
Still battling the seemingly never-ending problem of drugs in the valley and those who supply them, Catherine is on the cusp of retirement. So will Ryan finally get to know more about Tommy and, more importantly, the things he’s capable of? And with retirement on the horizon, you have to ask, will she even make it out of the force alive?
Happy Valley Season 3 Trailer: When can we watch it?
We have got quite a wait on our hands before any new footage of season 3 is available, considering that filming just began in January 2022. There is no trailer or teaser footage for the series just yet. An extended trailer for the show’s first and second season is available, giving just a bit enough of what happens in the movie without spilling out all the information. A trailer for season three should be a match and be available any time once the filming and production are complete.
