Trying, the Apple TV+ comedy series starring Rafe Spall and Esther Smith as a couple planning to adopt a baby, is to return for a third series.

The news has been announced before the second series has been seen by viewers. The producers also confirmed today that Series 2 will debut globally on Friday 14th May, with a new episode of the eight-part series becoming available each week from then.

The second series will continue to see characters Nikki and Jason navigating the adoption process. The producers say: "Having been approved by the adoption panel they now find that matching with a child is not as straightforward as they had hoped. It seems like children are being snapped up by other couples while somehow they're being left behind. Helped by their eccentric social worker Penny (Imelda Staunton) they are determined to do everything they can."


They add: "When Nikki meets a little girl called Princess at an adoption event she knows instantly that this is the child for them. But there are obstacles to Nikki's plan that may prove insurmountable."

Ophelia Lovibond (Erica), Oliver Chris (Freddie), Sian Brooke (Karen), Darren Boyd (Scott) and Robyn Cara (Jen) are all confirmed as returning for Series 2 as well, with creator Andy Wolton overseeing the scripts.

Series 3 of Trying is expected to be ready in 2022.
