The criminal UK is a web series that is based on the Crime-solving genre. Each new episode of every season is independent of the previous or the next episode. The story of the show starts in a police investigation room where the people who are accused of the crime are called for a question-and-answer session. 

The detectives ask the questions to all the accused people one by one depending on the information gathered by the police from the crime scene. Sometimes the accused telling the detectives their side of the story takes the audience to the visuals of the crime scene. The detectives or the officers in charge of the investigations then try to figure out the original criminal.

The writers of the show have taken the tales of the actual crime that have taken place in the UK. So, the Criminal UK season 3 plot could also be taken from the Crime activities that have taken place in the UK in the last year. As we already said that every new episode is independent of the previous one. But, there is a string that joins all the episodes in the season and that is the bond between Tony and Natalie, the detectives.

Yes, there is a high probability of the Criminal UK season 3 coming back to Netflix. How can we be so sure? We are sure because in an interview given to the media Katherine Kelly, the main character in the series said that 

“It’s got its own unique formula that’s quite unpredictable, so I couldn’t really say what the plan is, but I think there is a plan to do more – George [Kay, series writer and co-creator], he’s so brilliant that he’s always thinking about another story, another episode. He’s got so many ideas.”

That means that there are very good chances that we get to see the Criminals confessing in the investigation room again.
