It has been three years since the second season of ‘Doctor Foster’ was released. After no updates regarding the series, the fans went to move on as they did not expect anything. The show was talked for its third season by Mike Bartlett, the writer of the show but an unexpected turn has been taken. Starring Suranne Jones, ‘Doctor Foster’ had a huge fan base. Let us dive further into the article to learn more about the show and its upcoming spin-off.
With its first season premiering on 9th September 2015 the drama revolved around Dr. Gemma Foster. After Gemma realized that her husband was cheating on her, she goes on to investigate it. During the time of the inquiry, her life begins to unravel. The second season was released on 5th September 2017 and went on till 3rd October 2017. The third season was planned because according to the writer there was more story to be told but after that, there have been no updates about the series.
The second season was not a conclusion. It showed Gemma and Simons’ son Tom getting tired of his parents’ war and plans to live his life on his own. The final scene showed him getting into a car without anyone knowing where he is headed to. The ending showed Gemma looking into the camera and assuring her child that she is always with him. Bertie Carvel who played Simon Gemma’s husband while talking about the third season said that getting the cast together will be a task. Season 1 and 2 nearly had around 10 million viewers and was amazing but the story of Gemma was done.
