Ok, I’m a bit late to the dance, but doesn’t mean the band’s not coming back for another set. Just doing a bit of digging today on the eve of series 9 of MI5 (Spooks), which begins broadcasting on a number of public television stations across the U.S. this week. I had not “officially” heard of the commissioning of a series 10 but, somehow, I missed this when tweeted first by @TheTellyRocket and then RT by @ianwylie back in October 2010. Hey, two tweets on Twitter so it must be true, right? I’m running with it until someone says otherwise.
If everything holds true to past production and subsequent transmission timelines, filming will take place over the summer with transmission in the UK late 2011 and Spring 2012 in the U.S. Unfortunately, nothing official from BBC world headquarters, but there has been a series 10 confirmation sighting over at the Spooks Fan blog. If true, Christmas has come early this year giving viewers another season of the best television program on television, bar none.
For those in the states, MI5 series 9, will begin on a number of U.S. public television stations beginning this month. FYI, KERA/Dallas will air Thursdays at 9:00pm beginning Thursday, April 14. You haven’t seen anything yet. Enjoy.
