Happy Valley

Lookout Point, AMC, BBC One


- Drama Series: English Language

Happy Valley is one of the definitive British television series of the twenty-first century. This third and final series was the most-watched TV drama of 2023 in the UK, with over 16 million viewers on the BBC. In the US the show aired on AMC Networks’ platforms and it has racked up sales all over the world. Happy Valley 3 was named in multiple US and UK publications as a ‘best of’ 2023 including 2 citations from the New York Times, and has won accolades from the prestigious South Bank Show Award to Best Drama and Actress wins at the populist viewer-voted National TV Awards. Happy Valley 3 has thus proven itself the rare contemporary series that demands engagement from critics and mass audiences alike. Its success rests chiefly on the talents of series writer, creator and director Sally Wainwright; and star Sarah Lancashire in her career-defining role. Together they conjure a unique blend of authenticity and brutality alongside wit and human warmth.
