Shetland recommissioned for two more series by BBC One

In what will be very welcome news for many, Shetland has been recommissioned by BBC One for two more series.

Douglas Henshall reprising his role as DI Jimmy Perez alongside series regulars Alison O’Donnell and Steven Robertson.

Adapted from Ann Cleeves’ celebrated novels, Shetland debuted on BBC One in 2013 and has gone from strength to strength over the last five series, becoming a firm favourite with fans in the UK and across the world. The series has evolved to original six-part character-driven narratives, set against the striking elemental landscapes of Shetland, one of the most remote corners of the British Isles.

Series six and seven will film in 2020 and 2021 in locations on The Shetland Isles and around Scotland, and will again feature six hour-long episodes each. Both series will be written and created by David Kane (Stonemouth, The Field Of Blood) who originated the first series of Shetland and has written on every series since.

    Yippee! One of my faves!


  2. Good one.
    I do hope they make it more real-to-Shetland, though. Last series oor man was tete de tete with a married woman in a public bar. It would have been all around the islands in 5 minutes, surely.
