Emmerdale have confirmed that they will be returning to our screens for six episodes a week.
Production of the hit soap was halted back in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, before some castmates returned for three episodes per week in a socially distanced environment.
ITV announced on Wednesday that the show would be back up to speed with six-episode weeks returning from September 14, revealing that Coronation Street would also be back six times a week.
“Guilt, betrayal and resentment are at the centre of the village this autumn,” ITV stated.
For everyone. Everywhere. Every day.
