Back to Life Season 3 Plot


When it comes to the plot for season three of “Back to Life,” nothing has been said by the showrunners. But while talking exclusively to Radio Times.Com, Haggard teased on what the fans can look forward to if a third season is commissioned. She revealed that they have plans of getting Miri Matteson back on the show for a third season.


“I knew how season two was going to end precisely, I just knew. But there is always a possibility for more.


“These first two seasons cover her immediate departure, her immediate period of having left prison, and so me and Laura [Solon] were chatting the other day and we were like, ‘If we do do season three…?’ We got all excited.”


Haggard continued: “We definitely have quite a clear idea about what that would be too but I love it when things complete so you feel sort of satisfied and you get your ending, but there’s a little dot dot dot of possibilities for more. But you still feel like you’ve consumed something.”
