The horrific incident took place at a party and, with the rapist still on the loose, Hardy and Miller will be under more pressure than ever to solve the crime as quickly as possible.
Joining leads David Tennant (Hardy) and Olivia Colman (Miller), Julie Hesmondhalgh, Sir Lenny Henry, Charlie Higson, Sarah Parish and Georgina Campbell will also be making an appearance this series.
The new season trailer has dropped ahead of the premiere…and it’s looking pretty intense.
He told Digital Spy: “This series, I think, is just going to be brilliant. I can’t tell you too much about it, but the subject matter of it is really heavy.
“I loved the second series of Broadchurch – I think it was really necessary to tell that part of the story – but I think this series has more of the feel of the first series.”
Broadchurch returns Monday February 27 at 9pm on ITV1.
