Viewers last caught up with the residents of Darrowby in the show's bittersweet 2021 Christmas special, which saw the development of Mrs Hall's slow-burning romance with former soldier Gerald Hammond, while Tristan finally passed his veterinary exams.

Season three will air on PBS in January 2023

"Should their wedding go off without a hitch—and what are the chances of that?—James will have a new wife and a new stake in the business to think of," the synopsis continues. "The pressure is on, and while his scheme to participate in the government's practice to test for tuberculosis in cattle will expand the veterinary practice, it could put James on the outs with local farmers."

It adds that the new season will see Helen face new challenges too, while Tristan will navigate Skeldale House as a qualified vet - all while war with Germany looms on the horizon.

There's no news on when series three will arrive on Channel 5 for UK viewers, although we predict it will be sometime later this year, as that is when previous seasons have aired. Nevertheless, we'll be sure to keep you updated on any developments here.
