Dalgliesh Season 3 – More About the Release Dates, Expected Plot and Cast

Dalgliesh Season 3

Have you read the Adam Dalgliesh novels by P.D. James? If yes, Dalgleish is a British crime drama television series that’s based on those novels. The plot and the progression of this series might not be everyone’s cup of tea but it’s one of the most unique shows out there.

To give you a bit of a background, the series follows the protagonist, who happens to be a detective-poet. The show initially aired with six episodes on Acorn TV in 2021 and since the completion of the second season, people have been curious to know more about the third season.

This article will take you through all the details that you need to know about Dalgliesh Season 3, its release date, and the expected plot.

When is Dalgliesh Season 3 Releasing?

According to rumors, Dalgliesh Season 3 has received the green signal, meaning that the show is all set to start filming and the production is bound to start as well.

Some speculations suggest that the filming of the third season is either already underway or might be done by the end of 2023 and then it might be released in 2024. However, these are only speculations and nothing has been set in stone yet.

Although we don’t have any confirmation related to the show’s release yet, the silver lining is that everything has been confirmed already. So, although there might be delays with the release, we at least know for sure that it’s coming sometime in the future.

At this point, all we can do is wait. We can more or less expect new episodes to be released in 2024, so let’s keep our fingers crossed.

What can we expect from Dalgliesh Season 3?

The third season of Dalgliesh is expected to adopt two more of P.D. James’ novels: Shroud for a Nightingale and The Black Tower. 

Shroud for a Nightingale is set in a nursing school, where a student nurse is found murdered. Dalgliesh is called in to investigate, and he soon discovers that there are several suspects with motives for murder. 

The Black Tower is set in a remote theological college, where a member of staff is found dead. Dalgliesh is once again called in to investigate, and he soon discovers that the college is full of secrets and lies.

Who is returning to Dalgliesh Season 3?

When Dalgliesh Season 3 returns, it will most likely return with the main cast including Bertie Carvel and Carlyss Peer.

Besides that, we can expect the following cast:

  • Jeremy Irvine as Charles Masterson

Jeremy Irvine

  • Natasha Little as Emma Dalgliesh

Natasha Little

  • Rosalind Eleazar as Maggie Dalgliesh

  • Nicholas Woodeson as Superintendent Miskin

Nicholas Woodeson

  • Clare Holman as Judith Dalgliesh

We won’t know until the official release as to who will be returning to the show, so that’s something you’d have to settle for.


Dalgleish Season 3 is hands down one of the most highly anticipated series that you can consider watching in the upcoming year. However, there is indeed a lot of uncertainty surrounding the show’s release date, so that’s something we’d have to wait and see.
