Dci Banks has been recommissioned for a new six-part series by ITV.
The contemporary crime drama, which stars Stephen Tompkinson as Dci Alan Banks, Andrea Lowe as DS Annie Cabbot and Caroline Catz as Di Helen Morton, will begin filming for its fourth series in Yorkshire later this month.
The new series will feature a deeper exploration of Banks's relationship with his parents (Keith Barron and Polly Hemmingway), further complications in Annie and Banks's on/off romance and a career-threatening personal crisis for Helen.
Featured stories include 'Home', about the tragedy of a well-loved maths teacher run down by a car, with his girlfriend suspecting her own father and cousin, due to her having walked away from an arranged marriage.
Elsewhere, 'Ghost' will see Helen's past return to haunt her when an old flame from another police force implies he is being framed, before he is mysteriously killed.

Watch Lott on the set of the crime drama:
The 'Mama Do' singer plays a holiday camp performer who ends up being the centre of an investigation for Gently and John Bacchus.
Lott described her stint on the period crime drama as "fun" and revealed that her time on the show had inspired the "look and sound" of her upcoming self-titled third album.
Inspector George Gently airs on Thursday (February 13) at 8.30pm on BBC One. »
Dci Banks (Stephen Tompkinson) is having a barbecue with his colleagues in his countryside idyll with lovely views over West Yorkshire. Meanwhile, in the mean city (Leeds), a young boy called Kyle is abducted from a depressing block of flats by a couple posing as social services. Banks is flanked by two women now: Annie (Andrea Lowe), back from maternity leave, and the uncompromising Helen (Caroline Catz). Not many laughs but for fans of unremittingly gloomy searches for lost children, this does the job. Concludes next week. Julia Raeside
