After months of no new episodes due to the Covid pandemic, the show will return on 7th September on BBC One. Due to the additional production time needed to ensure compliance with government guidelines, the duration of each new episode has been cut to 20 minutes for the foreseeable future.
Since late-August, the BBC has been airing a number of 15-seconds trails, heralding the return of the much-loved soap. On 1st September, this 30-second promo debuted, featuring short excerpts from new episodes:
