The following UK projects are now visible on the horizon, whether in development or actively casting. Keep these leads on your radar and your eyes open for the opportunity to land an audition.

Strike: Troubled Blood
A new season of the BBC crime series following Tom Burke as rumpled private detective Cormoran Strike is coming. Adapted from the books by Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling), it sees him solving complex cases alongside trusted assistant Robin, played by Holliday Grainger. The three-parter is in preproduction ahead of shooting next year, and it’s likely that Gary Davy will return to cast. 

Professor T Season 2 
A second instalment is on the way of the drama starring Ben Miller as an eccentric, genius criminologist and Frances de la Tour as his overbearing mother. Shooting begins in spring 2022, and casting director Jenny Duffy is attached. 

The Witcher Season 3
Epic fantasy drama series The Witcher, based on the books by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, is gearing up for a third season, shooting in 2022. Henry Cavill returns as Geralt, a solitary monster hunter, and Freya Allan returns as Cirilla. Sophie Holland is attached to cast.
