A first look image has been released of Mark Bonnar and Jamie Sives reprising their roles as brothers Max and Jake in the third, and final, instalment of Guilt - the award-winning comedy drama written by Neil Forsyth (The Gold) and made by Expectation and Happy Tramp North for BBC Scotland and BBC Two.

The four-part series returns next month (April 2023) with all four episodes debuting on the BBC iPlayer as a day one drop.

The final part of the trilogy sees the brothers back together but enemies old, and new, cause them to seek ever more desperate solutions to their problems. Digging deep into their past, Max and Jake hope to finally find a future free of danger…and each other.

Joining Mark Bonnar and Jamie Sives for Guilt’s final series are David Hayman (Help, Avenger), Amelia Isaac Jones (Beast of Burden), Tamsin Toploski (Slow Horses, The Diplomat), Isaura Barbe-Brown (The Gold, Toast of Tinseltown), Euan MacNaughton (Outlander, Bridgerton), Anita Vettesse (Mayflies, Vigil) and Anders Hayward (Life After Life).

Returning for the final part of the Guilt trilogy are series favourites Emun Elliot (The Gold, The Rig), Phyllis Logan (Downtown Abbey, Intergalactic), Greg McHugh (The A List, Man Vs Bee), Ellie Haddington (Motherland, Crime), Sara Vickers (The Watchmen, The Crown) and Henry Pettigrew (Payback, The Crown).

Commenting on the recommission, writer Neil Forsyth said: “We always saw Guilt as a trilogy so I am thrilled to be writing a final act for Max, Jake and some of the others we have met along the way. It is a story that will range from Chicago to Scotland, as our characters seek a final redemption."

Guilt is coming soon to BBC Two.
