When is Vera back? ITV confirms the return date

Vera star Kenny Doughty was delighted to share the news of the hit drama’s return, as ITV has confirmed when it returns to our screens.

After production was delayed on Series 11 due to the coronavirus pandemic, with filming finally starting in Tynemouth in the fall of 2020, fans of the series were thrilled in late August when Vera finally returned.

With BAFTA winner Brenda Blethyn starring again as DCI Detective Vera Stanhope, the new series began with an investigation into a gruesome murder in Tynemouth, after the body of a local businessman was found at the foot of the Collingwood monument.

From there, the action moved to Northumberland as Vera was set to shed light on yet another mysterious death, this time after a young woman’s grove was discovered in the woods of the national park.

Over seven million viewers watched the first two episodes of Series 11, so there was a big disappointment when it was revealed that it would take them a while before they could see the rest of the new series.

However, the wait is almost over, as on Thursday an ITV scheduler confirmed that Vera’s Series 11 will resume on Sunday, January 9.
