We knew that series six of Shetland was just around the corner, and now BBC One has confirmed its start date.
The forthcoming new series centres on the doorstep murder of a prominent local figure, a case which strikes at the heart of the Shetland Isles and its people. As Perez and his team uncover a kaleidoscope of motives for the murder, their investigation soon takes a shockingly sinister turn.
All the main cast return, and star Douglas Henshall says: “After all we’ve been through over the last couple of years, it’s wonderful to be back filming on Shetland again. Davy Kane has, once again, created stunning storylines in these two new series for Perez and the team to uncover the truth. Being back on the Shetland Isles has been wonderful. There is no location quite like it.”
