Sean Bean and Stephen Graham are the stars of BBC’s new prison-drama, Time. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about Time including release date, cast, trailer, plot and more.
When is Time out on BBC?
At the moment, there is no official release date for Time on BBC.
The three-part series was only announced by the BBC and creator Jimmy McGovern this month, so it is still early days for the project.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, production on Time could face delays but filming is scheduled to begin in Liverpool this Autumn.
Therefore, crime-drama fans should expect Time to arrive on screens towards the end of the year or early 2021.
BBC’s Controller of Drama, Piers Wenger said that “Jimmy has a unique style of creating thought-provoking dramas which tell raw and emotional stories, and Time is exactly that.
“With Sean and Stephen in lead roles, Jimmy and Lewis behind the camera, Time is a shining example of British drama talent at its best.”

What is Time on BBC about?
Time is a three-part drama series, described by the BBC as “visceral”, “emotional”, and “thrilling”.
The series follows the two entirely different experiences of the British penal system.
One through the eyes of a prisoner (played by Sean Bean) and the other through a prison officer (Stephen Graham).
The synopsis for the series reads: “Seen through the eyes of two very different men, Time is a visceral and high-stakes portrayal of life in the modern British penal system.
“It is a story of guilt and forgiveness, punishment and penitence and the impact that prison has on all those who pass through it.
“Time is emotional and thrilling, showcasing the performances of two of Britain’s finest and best-loved actors.
“Both Eric and Mark, officer and inmate, are seemingly trapped by their pasts and unsure of their futures.
“Each has to not only survive but to find the strength and the way to move forward.”
Is there a trailer for Time on BBC?
No, unfortunately, there is no trailer for Time at the moment.
Filming for the series has not yet begun, so fans of Graham and Bean will be waiting a while longer to see them in action.
A trailer will likely drop closer to the show’s release date.
