Alongside this, the series will be continuing the will they or won’t they relationship between Cormoran and Robin.

However, while fans enjoy the new outing, some will be wondering what the future holds for the drama.

At the moment, there is no fifth book for the series to be focused on, which has left some fans worried.

However, there has been some good news for viewers of the series as Rowling has announced her fifth novel.

During the chat when the idea of adapting the new book came up, both actors were positive about wanting to come back for it.

However, if it is to return, it’s not quite clear when filming would be able to resume.

As a result of the outbreak of COVID-19, there have been some delays in production on a number of shows.

Now some are beginning to start up again but it is not quite clear when things will be back to normal.

The first two seasons of Strike were both released in 2017 as adaptations of The Cuckoo’s Calling and The Silkworm.

Then the third outing called Career of Evil was released on the channel in 2018.

Viewers have had to wait slightly longer for Lethal White but now it is airing on the BBC.

Therefore, viewers will be hopeful they will see more of the new show within the next couple of years.

As soon as the BBC confirms the future of the show, will keep fans updated.

However, before it lands, there will be four episodes of Lethal White for viewers to enjoy.

These will air on Sunday, August 30, and Monday, August 31, before the final two are released on the next two Sundays on BBC One.
