One person tweeted: “I will miss seeing #JohnSimm and @richkidcampbell on Sunday night. Skip to series 3.” Another echoed this, writing: “@ITV how awesome #Grace has been loved by everyone!”

As a third commented: “It’s rare to see good drama lately and this has been brilliant. I’d say a joy to watch if it weren’t for the topic. Thanks to you and your brilliant cast #Grace .”

What did you think of the final episode?

However, some had a different point of view. “If ITV completely overhauls #grace they could have a pretty decent drama on their hands…” one person wrote, while another said, “Who adapted this? Seriously. Eyes gutted? By all the means, use a word you think sounds clever or fancy, but maybe grab a dictionary before committing to it.”


Grace will return for the third series

Fans of the show will be delighted to know that while series two has been completed, series three has already been ordered by ITV and the cast and crew will be back on the Sussex coast to begin filming this summer.

John Simm spoke about continuing the role of Roy. In a previous interview, the actor admitted to Radio Times that he had “no qualms” about taking on a role he could be attached to for an extended period of time. “I’m more than happy to keep playing it if people want to keep watching the show,” he said.
