Emmerdale birthday celebrations set for sinister end as villager faces ‘life in jail’
To celebrate the show’s historic anniversary, the identity of the character is being kept a secret.
As a character faces a life sentence in prison, Emmerdale’s 50th anniversary will come to a sinister conclusion.
In October, the long-running soap opera will celebrate its milestone birthday. The episodes, according to the show’s producers, would be centered on a catastrophic storm that changes the imaginary community forever.
Director Kate Brooks stated to the ECHO: “Some of our most cherished people will be in danger, and it will leave behind a great path of devastation. It is safe to conclude that the community will never be the same again because of the enormous impact this storm will have.”
The executive producer of the soap opera has stated that even after the storm, there would still be drama since one character will likely run into legal issues. “When we reach the end of October, it could be the end of our celebrations, but we will be closing that month with a plot that launches a completely new story and possibly has one of our characters contemplating spending the rest of their lives in prison,” said Jane Hudson.
“I won’t get into that story any more with you. I won’t answer your question, so please don’t.
Three cherished characters will also make a comeback, making for a jam-packed month of episodes.
Aaron Dingle, Diane Sugden, and Tracy Metcalfe will briefly return to the town for the anniversary episodes, according to Kate. They’ll be at the center of some incredibly important storylines, which will have an effect on both their lives and the lives of the folks they’ll be leaving behind, she added.
