Since its premiere in 1996, Silent Witness has been a staple on our television screens and a solid favorite at the BBC for nearly a quarter-century.
In 2021, the popular criminal drama returned for its highly anticipated 24th series, many months later than initially scheduled because of a certain pandemic.
However, with series 24 nearing its close, Silent Witness fans are beginning to turn their attention to the future and whether or not the crime thriller will return for season 25.

Silent Witness Season 24 Recap
The 24th season of BBC One’s Silent Witness premiered on Monday, September 6th, with two new episodes each week.
Thomas and Clarissa departed the Lyell team last season, but the new cases haven’t halted. In addition to Adam Yuen and Simone Tyler, we’ve met two new characters this season, however, Adam didn’t survive long before being cruelly killed off.
Both Nikki and Jack are dealing with a lot of family trouble at the moment since their estranged brother was recently released from prison.
Silent Witness season 24 will come to an end on October 5th after 10 episodes.
Silent Witness Season 25 Renewal Status
The BBC has confirmed that Silent Witness will return for season 25 in 2022.
After the season 23 finale aired, it was announced that Silent Witness had been renewed for not one, but two additional seasons.
Silent Witness will return next year for a special 25th anniversary series in addition to the current season 24.
The season’s announcement was accompanied by a remark from BBC Drama Controller Piers Wenger, who stated: “Silent Witness entertains audiences from all generations and continues to be one of the UK’s most successful returning crime drama series.”
“I’m thrilled it will continue to grip the nation in 2021, and can’t wait for viewers to see what is in store for its 25th anniversary in 2022.”
Until then, there’s the season 24 finale to deal with. Season 25 of Silent Witness is already announced and the finale of Season 24 will premiere on BBC One on October 5th.

Silent Witness Season 25 Release Date
Due to coronavirus restrictions, filming on Silent Witness was delayed in 2021, therefore it didn’t premiere until the end of January as usual.
Filming for the 25th season has already begun, and the show’s stars have been spotted on-site by fans. We don’t know yet if the show will return to its regular time slot or stick to an early September start date. With regard to when we’ll see Series 25, the BBC promised it will air in 2022 when it was commissioned, but we’ll have to see.
We also know that the series will be shorter than usual, with six episodes instead of the customary 10.
Silent Witness Season 25 cast
Though Adam Yeun (Jason Wong) died tragically in the sixth episode of the 24th season, Silent Witness fans can rest easy knowing that both Jack and Nikki lived to see the end of the run.
David Caves and Emilia Fox will both be back in the show next year, and if the end of series 24 is any indication, it appears as if their characters may now be a couple, which would certainly give a new element to the series.
As Simone Tyler, Genesis Lynea will be back after a strong first four episodes, while original cast member Amanda Burton, who will reprise her role as Dr. Sam Ryan 18 years after leaving the show, will also be back in action.
Burton has spoken about how happy she is to be reprising her legendary role: “I am so excited to be returning to Silent Witness and stepping back into Sam Ryan’s shoes – with a difference! Audiences can look forward to plenty of twists and turns as they discover what Sam’s been doing since leaving the Lyell.”
With a long list of notable guest stars, of course. We’ll keep this page updated as we learn more about who will appear in the new season.
Silent Witness Season 25 Plot
It will be interesting to watch how the reappearance of Amanda Burton as Sam is integrated into the story. However, many fans are eager to see how Nikki and Jack’s relationship progresses.
In the final episode of the current series, they finally kissed. But does this imply that they’ll start dating? Maybe Nikki’s bad luck is finally about to change?? …or not?!!
