Award-winning Tracy Beaker Returns is back on CBBC with a brand new, action-packed third series, which will be broadcast in the New Year.

The 13-part drama, devised by multi-award-winning children’s author Dame Jacqueline Wilson and the drama team at CBBC, stars heroine Tracy Beaker (Dani Harmer) as she attempts to juggle life as an ex-resident of The Dumping Ground with her new responsibilities as one of the care-workers.

Filmed in the North East, Tracy Beaker Returns follows the ups and downs of the children and their carer-workers, and the new series promises even more twists and turns. Lively storytelling which combines thought-provoking drama with comic side-plots remains at the core of this immensely popular series.

This time around, new characters arrive and there are some goodbyes as others leave. Tracy is growing up into an experienced care-worker. With courage, tenacity and a bit less of a tendency to leap before she looks, she continues to deal with the mischief, mayhem and the emotionally draining personal and social issues confronting her charges in her own inimitable fashion. Will she finally mature into a young woman ready to fly the nest and start her own life independent of the Dumping Ground?

Starring Dani Harmer as Tracy Beaker, Connor Byrne as Mike, Kay Purcell as Gina and Lisa Coleman as Cam.

Tracy Beaker Returns is a CBBC production, produced by Gina Cronk and executive produced by Josephine Ward.
