Earlier this month, Vera fans were left disappointed after they were only able to watch the first two episodes of series 11. The latest season was cut short due to filming being delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic. The first two programmes saw DCI Vera Stanhope (played by Brenda Blethyn) back with her sidekick Aiden Healy (Kenny Doughty), as they attempted to solve another murder – and now the actor behind Aiden has some big news.
The final four episodes of series 11 will be available to watch in 2022, although a specific date hasn’t yet been confirmed.
However, fans will be delighted to know filming for the rest of series 11 has wrapped up filming.
The actor who plays Aiden in the cop drama confirmed the news on social media.
In view of his 23,000 followers, he told his followers the final four episodes had been filmed.
