Season 26 came to an end this week, much to the delight of some viewers, who had slammed the latest series and cited one episode as “the worst ever”.
However, despite the backlash, it has been confirmed that Silent Witness season 27 has gone into production.
A release date is yet to be confirmed, as is the casting information but the BBC has promised more information in the coming weeks.
It comes as Emilia, 48, discussed her future on the show as Dr. Nikki Alexander.
She told Express.co.uk: “I never expected to still be playing Nikki Alexander 18 years later, but I still love the show as much as when I first started on it.
“So, it’s really thanks to the loyal fans of Silent Witness and the enthusiasm for the show means that it is still [being] made.
“And I love it, and if audiences love it, and then hopefully it will carry on being made but you never know.”
Viewers saw Nikki and Jack’s relationship develop from friendship to romance.
However, the couple’s relationship was put to the test.
Emilia added: “Now that we are in a series where you’ve seen Jack and Nicky’s friendship move into a closer relationship and how that works.
“You know when you’ve known someone for a long time but you’re suddenly in a relationship, does that make it more difficult?
“And what will happen to them, so I look forward to seeing what the writers come up with me in the future.”
Silent Witness is available on BBC iPlayer.
