PBS is going back to Halifax one last time. The final season of British comedy-drama Last Tango in Halifax premieres Sunday, Sept. 20.
The new season of Last Tango in Halifax picks up several years after viewers last saw Alan (Derek Jacobi) and Celia (Anne Reid). Now seven years into their marriage, they’re settled into a lovely home, but there are some problems in their new abode. Political clashes, a new job for Alan, and other issues create tension in their household. Meanwhile, Celia’s daughter, Caroline (Sarah Lancashire), gets emotionally embroiled at work, while Alan’s daughter Gillian (Nicola Walker) faces trouble with a giraffe at the farm. To complicate matters, Alan’s brother, Ted (West) has arrived from New Zealand for a visit, but it turns out he only bought a one-way ticket.
In addition to airing on PBS stations, new episodes of Last Tango in Halifax will be available to stream for free on PBS.org and the PBS video app for 30 days after their initial broadcast.
The previous three seasons of Last Tango in Halifax are currently streaming on Netflix.
