How to watch Waterloo Road series 12 and how many episodes are there?

May 16, 2023

Class is back in session.

Waterloo Road returned to our screens in early 2023 after seemingly coming to an end eight years ago – but due to the popularity of the show on BBC iPlayer, a new series was commissioned, much to the joy of fans.

The show only came back in January, when series 11 introduced us to pupils and faculty both old and new, but now we already have another series to enjoy with the debut of the 12th season.

Director of BBC Drama, Lindsay Salt, has said: ‘We are thrilled that Waterloo Road is returning following its successful run earlier this year.’ 

But when can fans return to the schoolyard, and how many episodes will the series contain?

What time is Waterloo Road on BBC One?

The latest series of Waterloo Road starts tonight – Tuesday, May 16 – on BBC One at 8pm.

Dealing with the aftermath of Vinny’s (Jason Milligan) stabbing in the shocking final episode from the last series, episode one will also see Kim (Angel Griffin) get a blast from the past, while a new pupil causes problems.

Elsewhere Kai (Adam Ali) struggles with his feelings for Preston (Noah Valentine), and Danny (Adam Abbou) faces some tough decisions about his future.

Talking about the new series, cast member Jamie Glover, who plays the former deputy head and English teacher, said: ‘I am so excited to be returning to Waterloo Road. The school has been such an important part of my life and it’s wonderful to be able to rekindle the old flame.

‘Not to mention the joy of getting to work with the incomparable Angela Griffin once more.

‘I hope that people will enjoy seeing Andrew and Kim together in the school again. Older? Certainly, there’s the grey hair to prove it…! Wiser? Who knows?’

How many episodes of Waterloo Road series 12 are there?

There will be a total of seven episodes in series 12, with each one set to air on BBC One at the same time of 8pm on Tuesday nights.

Is Waterloo Road series 12 on BBC iPlayer?

If you don’t fancy watching the show the old-fashioned way week-by-week, then all seven episodes of the new series are now available to watch now on BBC iPlayer.

The show’s revival was very much a result of its popularity during the pandemic, as the previous series became one of the most streamed shows on the BBC platform.

If you do go ahead and binge-watch, do your best to keep all the twists and turns a secret – don’t go blabbing on the playground!

Waterloo Road starts tonight at 8pm on BBC One.
