The highly-watched, award-winning Acorn TV Original UK domestic thriller Keeping Faith comes to a close in this dramatic, final season available exclusively in the U.S. on AMC Networks’ acclaimed streaming service, Acorn TV, on Monday, April 12, with two episodes. Following that, new episodes will debut weekly on Mondays through May 10.
Season three finds small-town lawyer Faith Howells, played by Eve Myles, attempting to navigate the disillusion of her marriage, while taking on an emotionally wrenching legal medical case involving a gravely ill young boy. Into this mix, Faith is confronted by a terrible and long-buried figure from her past: her mother, Rose Fairchild, played by Celia Imrie, whose reappearance uncovers secrets in Faith’s background and will force audiences to ask the question: “Who is Faith Howells?.” Faith’s ordeal across the series transforms her from a stay-at-home, fun-loving, and carefree mother to a detective, action hero, and lover. She takes risks and gambles to keep her family out of danger and finds new inner strength.
Two weeks away from their divorce and a hearing that will determine their children’s future custody, Faith and her husband, Evan, played by Bradley Freegard are at loggerheads. Refusing to let go, Evan is insanely jealous of Faith’s burgeoning love affair with Steve Baldini (Mark Lewis Jones) and fearful that they intend to start a new life together. Meanwhile, Faith and Cerys (Hannah Daniel) have established a new law firm and take on the case of 14-year-old Osian Taylor, who is suffering from an aggressive brain tumor that his doctors have declared too advanced to operate on.
While dealing with the trauma her imminent divorce is inflicting on her daughters, 14-year-old Alys (Demi Letherby) and 11-year-old Megan (Lacey Jones) as well as all the pressures of work, Faith faces an even bigger and far more terrifying problem when her long-estranged mother, Rose reappears, intent on wreaking maximum revenge for an event which remains a dark, buried secret between them. Navigating increasingly impossible dilemmas and for once not able to give all those she loves what they need, Faith heads towards a final and devastating confrontation with Rose which will transform her life forever.
Season three will premiere exclusively in the U.S. a few weeks after its UK launch on BBC One.
