Amanda Burton is to return as The Commander after ITV1 ordered a fifth series.
The next outing of the drama by Lynda la Plante will see Burton's Commander Clare Blake take on the case of an elderly woman killed in her home and a newborn baby abducted from hospital.
Three hour-long episodes, rather than the two 90-minuters of previous runs, will air early next year.
La Plante said: "In creating the character of Commander Blake, it was very important for me to develop her personality and never let complacency set in.
"This three-part special is a pressure cooker of emotions that doesn't let up throughout and one that sees Blake tested both personally and professionally beyond anything she has experienced before."
