Last month Jodie Whittaker confirmed that she’ll be reprising the role of The Doctor for at least one more series of Doctor Who after its current twelfth, and now showrunner Chris Chibnall has revealed that he’ll also be back for another round of adventures in space and time in series 13.
“I do know I’m coming back for a third season,” said Chibnall in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Yeah, absolutely. We are already planning the stories. Once you see the end of this series, you’ll realize there are some stories we’re already setting in train for next series. We have very big, ambitious plans for our third series together.”
Asked when we might expect to see the next series, Chibnall replied: “It will be next year sometime, hopefully, unless my holiday goes on for a really long time, which is always tempting.”
Series 12 of Doctor Who begins its two-part finale tonight with ‘Ascension of the Cybermen’, followed by ‘The Timeless Children’ on March 1st.
