2nd Logo (July 10, 2019-)

Visuals: The text from before is spotlighted on a gold surface in a black background, with either "TELEVISION" or "PICTURES" underneath the spotlight. A gold umbrella, which is on top of the "U"'s left stem, opens up and, alongside the "U", swings back and forth before stabilizing. The umbrella also reflects and expands the spotlight across the surface "MONUMENTAL" is on, swinging in-sync with the umbrella's animation.

  • Sometimes, the logo may be still.
  • Starting in 2023, the byline "PART OF ITV STUDIOS" is added below the logo.
  • On The Marlow Murder Club, the spotlight, among the rest of the shading in the logo, is dark and the logo also shares the screen within the 2021 UKTV Original Production logo.
