Executive producer Diederick Santer commented: “I’m delighted with how the audience have taken to Grantchester, and I’m very happy that ITV have asked us to make a second series. The show is a joy to make, so we can’t wait to get back to working on it.”

ITV’s Director of Drama Steve November added: “We received a tremendous audience reaction to Grantchester. It was so well received so it was an easy decision to commission a new series. We’re looking forward to working with Diederick Santer and reading Daisy Coulam’s beautifully written scripts.”

Season 1 will premiere in the US in January on Masterpiece on PBS.
