Despite calls for a seventh series, show creator Jed Mercurio is yet to confirm whether another season will follow.
He previously told Radio Times Magazine: “We’re in a situation where it’s not entirely clear that there will be a seventh series.
“We would hope there could be. But we’re having to do our planning coming out of Covid, and a whole bunch of other things, around the idea that these things aren’t guaranteed at all now.”

But, fans of the show were quick to query a post he shared this evening.
Taking to Twitter, Jed shared a picture of himself alongside cast members Martin, Vicky and Adrian.
The quartet were seen beaming for the camera appearing to be enjoying some downtime away from filming the show.
The producer commented: “Working with @Vicky_McClure @martin_compston #AdrianDunbar has been the highlight of my career.
“Thanks to the rest of the cast, our brilliant crews and the production team @worldprods @BBCOne @BBCTwo for six incredible seasons.”
Martin and Vicky were quizzed about a potential seventh series by Jonathan Ross on his show this week.
The Steve Arnott star said: “We won’t come back just for the sake of it. That’s for sure.
“We’ll come back if there’s a story to tell. But, so as well, if it ends well maybe sometimes it is best to leave it. But, so, genuinely we don’t know.”
