Having enjoyed perhaps its most critically acclaimed season ever (and with next week’s finale still to come), the show has regularly been attracting over 5.7 millions viewers to BBC1 and BBC3.

Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning says: “I’m delighted Spooks is returning to BBC1 and BBC3 next year. It continues to be a channel defining show, consistently pushing the boundaries of television drama while maintaining strong viewer loyalty and attracting critical acclaim.”

Kudos will begin filming series eight in March 2009. While most of the cast expect to return, Miranda Raison (Jo Portman) has already stated she’ll only be in “some” of next year’s episodes.
