Dalgliesh Season 2 and 3 Potential Release Date
The show’s producer, New Pictures, will go back to the set to film the episodes. The first episode will start filming this year so that it can come out in 2023. As of July 13, 2022, the exact dates for Dalgliesh Seasons 2 and 3 have not yet been set. But if we look at the pattern of when the first season came out, we can guess that the second season will start sometime in the next year.
Season 2 will start filming this summer, but not much is known about Season 3. Filming for Season 3 will start in Northern Ireland sometime in 2023, though.
We think that it will come out sometime in 2023, probably in or around November. In the same way, season three will come out a year after season two, in November 2024.
Also, we want to make it clear that at this point, everything is just a guess. Fans should be patient because the network will confirm these facts in the coming months, so they should keep an eye on it.
