Drama Ashes to Ashes, starring Philip Glenister, will return for a third and final series, the BBC has confirmed.
Producers have revealed the climax of the next series will reveal who the character Gene Hunt really is.
Writer Ashley Pharoah said the series, set in the 80s, will offer "intriguing twists and turns to keep viewers guessing about the final outcome".
The finale of the current series, which is set in 1981, will be broadcast on Monday evening at 2100 BST.
The first ever episode of the time travelling cop show saw Alex Drake (Keeley Hawes) waking up in the 1980s after being shot in an incident in modern-day London.
Next season fans, who have been following the show, will finally learn how Drake's journey will come to an end.
Official figures said the opening of the second series drew in 8.04 million viewers, but figures have dropped since - with a low of 5.89 million on 20 March.

Don`t fret, I shall get to them soon. ;)
What news of your Mum ? :)

Oh, Sarah. These are the last three posts I've made on another forum.
She's in a nursing home in a tiny room. If she was in a private room (£475 per week :? ) it would be a huge room with flat screen telly on the wall.
Nowhere to put anything. I've bought a bedside table, a moble phone, and allsorts of stuff, though she probably won't use much of it.
Her driving is hair raising (many, many people have told me this) so I'm hoping that she won't be allowed to drive again (car in for MOT today, and mechanic man already told me he doesn't think it will pass - result!).
She's probably going to have to move.
The phone won't stop ringing, either there or here at home - 3 calls already today and I've only been home a since 2.
I do hope you'll all come visit me when I'm in the nuthouse.
I am so damn tired.
I've found out a lot of bad things this last week.
John, the guy mum and dad bought the house off, and who is still mum's builder guy, is a nasty bit of work, and it appears he's been scamming them both all these years, and most of the village are convinced he knew more about the burglary they had about 16 years ago than he admits to.
I know he has a set of keys for emergencies, but it's a tad strange when mum's cleaner (when giving statement to the cops) knows nothing about what's in the drawers in mum's (and at the time, dad's) room, yet John could describe all the jewelry.
When she mentioned that she had know knowledge of the contents in front of the cop, John went nuts, and said that if mum and dad didn't spend all their money on "their bloody daughter", they may have been able to afford to have the broken in window fixed beforehand.
Guess who is going to try and get the locks changed on mum's house.
Trouble is, mum thinks the world of him, and it would kill her, so I have to be very careful about what I say and do.
I feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place.
He was good when dad was sick - came up every morning and got him in and out of the bath, but I now find out that when he was taken to hospital for the last time, he said to one of mum's mates that it was mum's fault it went on that long, and he should have been sent away six months before.
He also introduced David & Kerry to mum as gardeners. They fell out with him a couple of years ago, and David told me this week that John said when they first went there "just make it look like you've done some work".
He also used to charge her a tenner to come up and check the oil and water in the car.
I'm a wreck.

Philip has a face like a Bulldog chewing a wasp, but I do find him very sexy for some reason. :blush:

Ashes To Ashes series three: introduction
1983: The Brinks Matt robbery. The A-Team. Michael Jackson's Beat It. And the year of the Hunt
It's time to get your shoulder pads out of storage, start crimping your hair and get into the Eighties mood for the very last time because the award-winning BBC One drama, Ashes To Ashes, is back for Spring 2010.
The highly-anticipated finale sees Philip Glenister and Keeley Hawes reprise their roles as that most un-PC of policeman, DCI Gene Hunt, and his sassy partner DI Alex Drake, along with Dean Andrews as DI Ray Carling, Marshall Lancaster as DC Chris Skelton and Montserrat Lombard as WPC Sharon 'Shaz' Granger.
As well as the much-loved regular faces, Daniel Mays (The Street, Plus One) joins the series as Discipline and Complaints officer, Jim Keats, adding an unsettling twist to the team dynamic.
The smash hit drama (eight x 60-minutes), made by Kudos Film and Television in association with Monastic Productions, finally unravels many of the mysteries from the previous two series of Ashes To Ashes, as well as those first experienced by the initial time-travelling copper, Sam Tyler, in the groundbreaking BBC One series Life On Mars some five years ago.
Will Alex finally discover why she's been sent back to the Eighties? Does anything tie Alex and Sam Tyler together? And who exactly is Gene Hunt…?
