When it comes to a special episode, Emmerdale has hinted that we might expect another one in the near future.
Producer Laura Shaw confirmed to Digital Spy and other media as part of a huge 2022 tease that fans would soon be treated to a “really unique episode” from a whole new perspective.
When it comes to stepping outside of our comfort zone, “we’re never ones to shy away from it,” she remarked. “We’re about to begin filming a very special episode, which we’ll be announcing soon.
“One of our most anticipated stories for this year will begin with this episode in a unique way.
“Unlike anything we’ve done before, the audience will be able to see the story in a completely new light. I’m not sure how much more I can say about it without giving anything away.”
Emmerdale has a history of experimenting with its style, previously airing multiple special episodes that manipulated the passage of time and the perspective of characters.
Charity Dingle’s abuse was depicted in an episode of the serial in 2018, which also contained flashback scenes for Faith and Cain Dingle in 2017 as well as a flashback episode for Charity in 2018.
This year’s Big Night Out episodes have featured flashback scenes from multiple viewpoints, showing the events of one dramatic night, while a 2016 episode featured different actors playing familiar characters and filming events from Ashley Thomas’s point of view in a different way, representing Ashley’s experience with dementia.
A “golden month of celebration” with “mind-blowing antics” and “more heartbreaks” has been promised to fans in honor of the soap opera’s 50th anniversary in October.
“I think there is a lot coming up – the focus is really to celebrate Emmerdale turning 50,” producer Jane Hudson said. “Our focus at the moment is to really build those stories so when we get to our golden month of celebration, we’ve got secrets that the viewers are desperate to be revealed.”
