The Larkins Season 3 Release Date: Has ITV Renewed The Larkins for a Third Season? 

Has the show been canceled? Will it be renewed? ITV is yet to announce whether the drama series will be back for the third season. It will be renewed only if it did extremely well and got positive ratings and reviews from fans. The first episode received approximately four million views when it was first released on ITV. A 67% rating on Rotten tomatoes was not as bad, and the show returned for a second season on 16th October, 2022.

Unfortunately, Walsh did confirm that The Larkins will not return for a third season in 2023. Due to his busy schedule filming successful ITV shows like The Chase and Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad, the star explains that he simply does not have enough time in his calendar for a lengthy drama series shoot.

We can still be optimistic, given that he only indicated that the show will not be coming back in 2023 due to his busy schedule. This implies that there is a possibility for the show to return in 2024 or possibly in early 2025.

The Larkins Season 3 Cast: Who will appear?

Once the series is renewed, fans hope to see the casts in season two back. We expect The Larkins Family to be back. Bradley Walsh, best known for playing Danny Baldwin (Coronation Street), is Pop Larkin. He is married to Joanna Scanlan (Ma Larkin). Together, they have six beautiful children. The Bridgerton star Sabrinna Bartlett acts as Mariette Larkin, Pop daughter, and Tok Stephen (Charley’s love interest). Stephen Hagan is Tom Fisher, the mysterious guy who finds Mariette attractive. Other casts are; Peter Davison as Vicar, Kriss Dosanjh as Brigadier, Amelia Bullmore as Miss Edith Pillchester, Seeta Indrani as Miss Chand and Robert Bathurst as Johnny Delamere.
