Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning, says: “New Tricks continues to grow and is a huge favourite with the audience making it the highest rating drama on TV so far this year. New Tricks is made by Wall to Wall productions for the BBC and filming for the new series will begin later this year.
