THE FINAL SEASON OF MUM PREMIERES THURSDAYS AT 10PM ET FROM SEPT. 19 THROUGH OCT. 24, 2019
SEASON 3 SYNOPSIS
In the finale series of Mum, Cathy and her family decamp to the English countryside to celebrate Derek’s birthday. Each episode observes a different day of the week, from their arrival on the Monday to the party on the Saturday, as Cathy takes a final step towards her future.
Starring Academy Award nominee, Olivier Award winner and BAFTA nominee Lesley Manville,Mum is a family comedy seen through the eyes of Cathy, a mother in her late fifties who finds herself at a milestone in life after the death of her husband.
Over the course of one year, starting with the funeral in January and ending on New Year’s Eve, Cathy must navigate the everyday realities of this new era of her life alongside the good intentions of her lovably baffling family.
Offering a refreshingly funny and modern perspective on an often overlooked stage in our lives, Mum is the story of a woman discovering who she is again and maybe, if she could only see him, finding love second time around.
