Will there be a fourth series of Harlots on BBC?
At the moment, there has been no official announcement regarding the future of Harlots on BBC.
If Harlots is given the green light for a fourth season by the BBC, fans should expect the new series to arrive in late 2021 at the earliest.
The series aired for three seasons between 2017 and 2019.
Hulu decided to end the series in 2019 to focus on more original content.

At the time, Deadline reported: “The decision arrives as the streamer has added multiple original series as part of its FX on Hulu hub, with originals including Mrs America, Devs and the upcoming The Old Man and A Teacher, as well as a deep roster of library titles.”
The first two seasons of the show were available to watch via ITV Encore in the UK and Hulu in the US.
Sadly, the third season of the show was not available to watch in the UK and was only available to Starzplay customers.
Thankfully, in July 2020, the BBC announced all three seasons of Harlots were coming to BBC iPlayer and BBC Two.
In a statement, Sue Deeks, BBC Head of Programme Acquisition, said ahead of the show airing: “Aided by a truly magnificent cast, Harlots brings 18th century London to life with enormous style, wit, intelligence and humour.
“BBC viewers will become immersed in the gripping lives of businesswomen Margaret Wells (played by Samantha Morton) and Lydia Quigley (Lesley Manville) as they make their way in London’s grimy, decadent world.”
The first two seasons are available to stream and download via the BBC iPlayer now, with season two airing every Wednesday evening at 9pm on BBC Two.
A release date for season three has not yet been confirmed by the BBC but is expected to arrive shortly after season two has concluded.
As a result of Harlots move to the BBC, there has been an explosion of new Harlots fans who are demanding more.

A second fan said: “ PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF ALL HARLOTS, COME BACK WITH SEASON 4. The story isn’t done. It’s just beginning with Lucy as head bawd and dame death, everyone! Y’all have to renew for season 4!! #Harlots #satanspalace #mythingismyown”
A third fan added: “Please please please can we have a season 4 of Harlots #harlots #bbc #drama obscenely enjoyable!!”
Harlots star Lesley Manville, who plays Lydia Quigley in the series recently revealed she would love to reprise the role for another series with the BBC.
Speaking to the Radio Times and other press earlier this year, Oscar-nominee Manville said: “I hadn’t thought of that, I hadn’t thought of that at all.
“We finished season three and I think we all thought that was it.
“You know, there might be [a series renewal]! Let’s start writing the letters now.
“I’d always be interested – obviously I’d be interested, I had nothing but a pleasurable time doing all three series, and it was one of those blissful jobs, so I’d definitely [give] that a lot of consideration but it’s certainly not something that’s been talked about.
“Maybe you could start a campaign.”
