For over a year, my local PBS station has been teasing, on and off, that they had a “new” season of Scott & Bailey, my favorite Manchester lady detectives (just kidding, we don’t gender job titles any more, there are no detectivesses). I’d tune in with great excitement, only to find it was the same season I’d finished watching many months ago. I’ve watched and rewatched all of Season 4, to the point of nearly memorizing dialogue. I began to despair.
I should have been paying attention. Hulu has Season Five! Let the people rejoice! It’s also available for purchase on Amazon Prime. Or we in the US can all just keep waiting on PBS. (Ooo, look: here are a bunch of previews of old episodes.)
Not to be Debbie Downer or anything, but Season Five is the last season of the show. It aired a year ago in the UK. You can find spoilers, and some weeping and wailing about the show’s end, here.
