Cases for the new season will involve a shocking crime on a steam train, an arson attack predicted by a medium and the baffling disappearance of the local fishing legend.

Kris Marshall says:

“I’m beyond excited to have begun filming the second series of Beyond Paradise. ‘Shipton Abbott’ is such a wonderful location to call home for a while and it’s a delight to join up with my fellow police team for another batch of weird and wonderful cases, and to see what’s in store for Humphrey and Martha in the next chapter of their lives.”

Sally Bretton adds:

“Series one of Beyond Paradise was such a joy to be a part of and I’m ecstatic to have returned to what already feels like a second home in Shipton Abbott. I can’t wait for audiences to see what we have planned – the second series is set to be brilliant!”

The show was created by Robert Thorogood and Tony Jordan and is a co-commission between the BBC and BritBox International. Red Planet Pictures, part of the Asacha Media Group produce the show. The showrunner is Tony Jordan.

Tim Key, Executive Producer, Red Planet Pictures says:

“We were delighted with how quickly the audience took Beyond Paradise to their hearts and over the moon to be back for more. Our fantastic cast and crew are hard at work to bring another series of humour, heart and of course some properly puzzling cases to audiences, all set against the beauty of Devon and Cornwall – and of course to let everyone experience Shipton Abbott at Christmas!”

The first series of Beyond Paradise is still available to watch on BBC iPlayer. Naturally, the special will land during the festive period, with the series following in 2024.
