Marcella’s third series reached a hair-raising climax this week (Tuesday, March 2, 2021) when the Maguire family’s title character escaped through the skin of her teeth – and here are five questions we have after the finale.

How did the third series of Marcella end?

In the season three finale, Marcella gets into a private jet to an unknown destination.

And she is not alone.

She is with Katy Barrett, the orphaned little daughter of Stacey and Bobby Barrett, members of the Maguire crime dynasty.

Before leaving the Maguire mansion, Marcella transferred the Maguire fortune (£ 24 million) to a secret bank account for Katy.

Viewers know that after the death of her own young daughter Juliet, Marcella struggled to move on.

Perhaps adopting baby Katy could be the salvation she needs.

Questions after the Marcella final: What about Marcella’s condition?

Viewers know that Marcella has a dissociative identity disorder.

The state means that she enters into joint states where she fades out and wakes up with no memory of what she did.

Is she fit for a baby?

And will she ever see her own children again?

Where is Marcella going at the end of the third series?

Marcella gets on a private jet to restart in a new country after stealing all millions from Maguire (thanks to Rory’s eyeball).

But where is she going?

One possible destination is Cuba, the country the Maguire family wanted to send Bobby Barrett to when he fled a murder.

We know that Marcella Backland now calls herself Miss Hart and has decided that she “cannot go back to her old life”.

Oh and of course she has a new hairstyle too!

Questions after the Marcella final: who will call you at the airport?

As it looks like Marcella could allow a fresh start, she receives a call …

Before boarding the plane, a mysterious caller who knows her true identity tracked her down to the private airport.

Marcella answers the call and hangs up when she hears her real name being used.

Could DI Rav Sangha have survived the gunshot wound to call her?

Or is it someone else from your past?

The questions all lead to a possible series of four …

Will the Maguire go after her?

Thanks to Keira / Marcella, the Maguire family imploded – and they all ended up dead after an epic exchange of fire.

All except Katherine, who is not exactly forgiving. Will she find them out of revenge?

Likewise, she might want Katy to return to the herd.

Should Marcella – or Miss Hart – look back ?!

At the end of the third series, Katherine was still incapacitated after her stroke, but that could change.

Questions after the Marcella final: will there be a fourth series?

Viewers who want to see more of Marcella will have to wait.

ITV has not yet confirmed whether the series will return.

Although we have a strong feeling that Anna Friel will be back as Marcella in 2022.

According to actress Anna Friel, the crime drama should always be a trilogy, but a return after season three is possible.

Before the start of the UK season, Anna said: “The end of season three is still open.

“I think it depends on how much the audience likes it.”

What did Anna Friel say about the final of the third series?

Actress Anna Friel, who plays Marcella, says, “The third series has a satisfying ending.

“There is quite a twist and surprise for Marcella.

“I think viewers will be pretty surprised like they were in season two, but this time pleasantly surprised.

“There could be a redemption.”

Anna added: “Marcella could go to Cuba. She could go anywhere. “

Marcella closed on Tuesday, March 2nd, 2021 with a double calculation of episodes seven and eight. The entire series can currently be viewed on the ITV Hub.
