Grantchester – that cosy crime drama set in 1950s England and adapted from the novels by James Runcie – has been renewed for a sixth series.
Starring Robson Green and Tom Brittney, it tells the story of the unlikely friendship between a Cambridge-based policeman and a crime-solving vicar.
Deadline reports, “Grantchester is coming back for a sixth season after British broadcaster ITV and PBS Masterpiece renewed the quaint drama.
“Stars Robson Green and Tom Brittney, who revealed the news on an Instagram live video, will return.
Green said that he was ‘so happy’ that the show was returning. ‘I can eat, again. It’s a miracle,’ he joked.
He was told to keep September to January free. ‘I think it’s going be strange, I just hope the scripts aren’t dictated too much by something beyond our control but I’m sure they will be,’ he said.”
