Producers were "thrilled by the audience response" to the first series, which was based around the mysterious murder of 11-year-old Danny Latimer in a small coastal town in Dorset.

The gripping storyline of the first series has made Broadchurch one of the most highly anticipated returning dramas in years.

Last month, social media went into meltdown when two new trailers for the second series was released. At the time, ITV teased fans with news that the series would be returning in the new year.

Details of the second series is being kept tightly under wraps, but to build anticipation, ITV will be unveiling a first-look trailer in sections throughout the rest of today.

The second series of Broadchurch will feature a total of eight episodes.

Broadchurch returns on Monday 5 January at 9pm on ITV.
