Filming has already begun on the sixth series…
Reverend Will Davenport and Police Inspector Geordie Keating will return to solve more cases, this time in 1958, as it’s been confirmed that ITV has renewed its popular period drama series Grantchester for a sixth season.
ITV notes that in the opening episode of Grantchester season six, Geordie, Cathy and their family, Will, Leonard and Mrs C are to take a much needed holiday together. “However, what sets out to be a fun-filled break for everyone at a holiday camp is interrupted by a tragic death at the resort. Geordie and Will are left with no choice but to help out, as an investigation into the death begins. As events unfold on the trip, there will be serious repercussions for the rest of the series.”
Grantchester stars Tom Brittney, Robson Green, Al Weaver, Tessa Peake-Jones, Kacey Ainsworth, Oliver Dimsdale and Nick Brimble, and production is already underway on season 6 in Cambridgeshire, Hampshire and Hertfordshire.
“In these difficult times we are delighted to be able to film another series of our beloved Grantchester”, said executive producer Emma Kingsman-Lloyd in a statement. “The cast and crew have worked tirelessly to bring the series to the screen and we know the audience are very excited to see what Will, Geordie and the Grantchester family have in store for them.”
