Will There be a Vera Series 10?

There has been no confirmation of a Vera series 10, yet.

However, Vera actress Brenda Blethyn has opened up about the possibility of rounding up the troops for a tenth season.

Speaking to the Irish Times, she said:

I mean it’s always wait and see. They’re talking about it, but I’ve just got to get my breath back first. It’s like a feast and you’ve stuffed yourself with it – ‘please, I want nothing more, Vera, please go away.’ But then you get hungry again…

Vera Series 10 Release Date

Brenda has held the role as Vera since the shows inception eight years ago.

Her involvement in the series is parallel to whether a season 10 exists.

Should Brenda return, in her trademark brown coat and floppy olive hat, then the start date could launch in 2020.

Both series 8 and 9 started in the new year and these two series have seen the best average U.K viewership.
