Doc Martin season 10 release date: Will there be another series?
Doc Martin concluded this week on ITV and fans are curious to know if there will be more to come of the medical-comedy drama. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about the future of the much-loved series.
Will there be another series of Doc Martin?
At the moment, the future of Doc Martin remains unknown.
However, a 10th season has not been ruled out by lead star Martin Clunes who plays Doctor Martin Ellingham in the series.
Speaking to Digital Spy in 2017, Clunes said ITV had only commissioned the drama as far as 2019, which does not mean a season 10 has been ruled out entirely.
He said: “We don’t just decide to make it on our own, ITV have to commission it.
“And ITV has commissioned the ninth. We don’t have a commission beyond that. Ask me again in two years.”

Since season three in 2007, Doc Martin has had a gap of two years between the premiere of each season, so a tenth series is likely to follow suit.
If season 10 is given the go-ahead, it is likely to arrive in September 2021.
The tenth season of Doc Martin will depend on many things, including ratings, cast availability and decisions made about the plot by show creator Dominic Minghella and writer Philippa Braithwaite.
However, the ending of season nine has left many fans worried Doc Martin would not be returning.
The finale ended on a huge cliffhanger, with Doc Martin about to undergo the final part of his General Medical Council scrutiny.
Before his review could begin, Martin decided to resign, knowing he would be struck off the register.
However, before he could tell his wife Louisa (played by Caroline Catz) he had quit the medical field, she revealed she was pregnant.
In the episodes final moments, Martin broke the news he was unemployed and admitted his timing could not have been worse.

To add fuel to the fire Doc Martin was over for good, ITV tweeted a photo of Martin and Louisa after the episode ended.
The caption read: “Goodbye, Doc! We’ll miss you #DocMartin,” teasing the show was over for good.
Fans instantly took to Twitter to express their fear and sadness Doc Martin may not return.
One fan wrote: “Omg, I love Doc Martin! It had better not be the last one ever!”
A second fan tweeted: “Gutted can’t believe Doc Martin is no more.”
A third fan added: “It would be madness to end it there. Doc Martin is easily the best series on TV by miles. Come on ITV get commissioning another series!”
