Doctor Who boss confirms series 13 storylines and fate of cast will be revealed in two-part finale – The Sun

THE first of Doctor Who’s finale episodes will kick off on Sunday and according to Chris Chibnall, we can expect to find out some key aspects of next year’s series.

Jodie Whittaker and the gang will take a final stand against the Cybermen after travelling into the future to find Earth under siege.

So far it remains to be seen whether all of The Doctor’s companions will survive the trip, considering the official synopsis warned of grave danger.

In any case, Chibnall claimed that the finale would lay the groundwork for the sci-fi hit’s 13th series, which will begin filming this autumn, for a 2021 release.

“I do know I’m coming back for a third season,” Chibnall confirmed to Entertainment Weekly.

“We are already planning the stories. Once you see the end of this series, you’ll realize there are some stories we’re already setting in train for next series,” he went on.

Hinting that the rest of the production team, and no doubt much of the cast, will be reprising their roles, he added: “We have very big, ambitious plans for our third series together.

“It will be next year sometime, hopefully, unless my holiday goes on for a really long time, which is always tempting.”

Earlier this week, Chibnall claimed the finale would leave fans “wrung-out and open-mouthed,” so no doubt he’ll be looking forward to some time away from the chaos.

The Ascension of the Cybermen finale will welcome a series of new guest stars, including Game of Thrones stars Ian McElhinney and Patrick O'Kane, Mutant Chronicles' Steve Toussaint and Benidorm's Julie Graham.

In other Doctor Who news, Mandip Gill recently addressed the exit rumours surrounding her character Yasmin.

She admitted her future on the show was uncertain, but stressed that she’d love to be a part of season 13, which is set for a 2021 release, with production kicking off this autumn.

Meanwhile new pics suggested that Ryan (Tosin Cole) could find himself converted into a Cyberman.

Doctor Who continues Sunday on BBC One at 7:10pm and will be available to stream on iPlayer.
