Series 4 of Spooks commences on BBC One on Monday 12th September. The series opens with a special two-part story depicting a series of bomb attacks on London. Part two will be shown on Tuesday 13th. Both episodes air on BBC One at 9pm.
Spooks writer Ben Richards told the BBC Press Office "e;As the fourth series of Spooks begins, the stories are more relevant than ever before.
The show has always been fast-paced and hard-hitting but now concerns over national security provide an even more dramatic backdrop to the challenges facing our team from MI5."e;
Executive Producer Jane Featherstone told the BBC "e;Spooks has a reputation for uncanny prescience when it comes to portraying real-life events, and again, this series is no exception."e;
"e;More than ever, this year we have found that elements of storylines conceived over a year ago are being reflected in real events; it’s what makes it feel relevant and contemporary.
"e;As for the action: well, we’ve notched up the pressure even higher this year.
Viewers are used to our customary cliff-hangers and fast-moving plots – I think that in this new series we’ve ramped up the pace to make the stories more action-packed and exciting than ever."e;
From episode three transmission moves to Thursdays starting from 22nd September with an advance showing of the following week’s episode on BBC Three.
