Updates on Marcella Season 4: The ITV crime thriller Marcella was only supposed to be a trilogy, according to actor Anna Friel, but a return after season three is possible. Friel told Hello Magazine ahead of the UK season debut last month, “The end of the third season is very much left open.” I suppose it is contingent on how much the audience appreciates it.”
Outside of the United Kingdom, Netflix premiered Marcella season three in summer 2020, but ITV viewers had to wait until January 2021 to find out what happened to the troubled investigator after she was employed as an undercover officer at the end of season two.
ITV Hub presently has all eight episodes of the new season available to view, with new episodes running on ITV1 every Tuesday at 9 p.m. Fans who have already binge-watched the entire series are now wondering if they will see DS Backland again.
In the season three finale, Marcella boards a private jet to an unknown place with Katy Barrett, the orphaned infant daughter of Stacey and Bobby Barrett, members of the Maguire crime family.
Before leaving the Maguire estate, Marcella transferred the whole Maguire inheritance (about £24 million) to a secret bank account “for Katy,” yet it appeared that she was also dipping into the cash, based on her shiny ride and new style.

Friel’s salvation may lie in adopting/abducting infant Katy. Marcella’s PTSD is a reoccurring issue in the series as a result of the death of her young daughter Juliet.
As a result of the pain of losing Juliet, the detective developed dissociative identity disorder, which included experiencing fugue episodes in which she blacked out and awoke with no recall of what she’d done.
In season two, Marcella used regressive hypnotherapy to relive her terrible memories of Juliet’s death, knowing that she had accidentally killed her baby while attempting to quiet her.

She had a psychological breakdown as a result of that knowledge, during which she signed over custody of her two older children to her ex-husband, attempted suicide, and then severely mutilated her face and hair before disappearing after being incorrectly recognised as having perished in a fire.
With a new baby, a fresh start in a new country (possibly Cuba, the destination to which the Maguire family intended to send Bobby Barrett when he went on the run after committing murder), and a new name (Miss Hart at the private airport), the character may be getting a clean break from her past and a happy ending that lasts until the sunsets.
