The Tower spoilers follow.

ITV's latest crime drama The Tower ended on a huge cliffhanger tonight (November 10), hinting that a second season might be in the works – and that someone could go to jail after all.

Led by Game of Thrones star Gemma Whelan as Detective Sergeant Sarah Collins, the series is an adaptation of ex-Met Police officer Kate London's book Post Mortem.

On the third and final episode tonight, Collins and DC Steve Bradshaw (Jimmy Akingbola) were one step closer to cracking the suspicious death case of PC Hadley Matthews (Nick Holder) and Libyan teen refugee Farah Mehenni (Lola Elsokari). The two plummeted to their death from a tower block in South-East London, under the eyes of PC Lizzie Adama (Tahirah Sharif) and a 4-year-old boy.

Lizzie was the key to solving this intricate case. In the second episode, it was revealed that she lied to protect her partner Hadley – and her relationship with her married boss, DI Kieran Shaw (Emmett J Scanlan). Hadley was accused of having used racist language towards Farah and her family, and Shaw pushed Lizzie to cover for him.

With Farah dead and gone, it would be hard to prove Hadley's racism, right? Well, not quite. The girl had recorded their conversation on her phone, a crucial object missing from the crime scene.

As it turns out, Shaw had held on to the teen's phone. A relentless Collins, who had been suspicious of Shaw from day one, managed to get a warrant to search his house.

However, Shaw's wife Mary (Laurie Delaney) came to the rescue, grabbing the phone before Collins could see it. Later on, she told her husband she had destroyed the one piece of evidence that could incriminate him, Lizzie and Hadley. But did she?

As the series was drawing to a close, one viewer commented: "Right now I can't go to sleep content. Justice hasn't been done. The truth hasn't been told. What am I meant to do now? Will there be more? When will it come out? I need answers!!"

Another person wrote: "Was really enjoying #TheTower but that ending was to say the least disappointing! Just hoping the real truth is revealed in a second series!" Well, their wish might have just been granted.

In the final scenes of the third episode, we saw a bitter Mary holding the phone, which is very much intact and ready to be used against her cheating husband.

The Tower is available to stream on ITV Hub.
