Wil there be a season 11 of Death in Paradise?
It was announced on January 7 that Death in Paradise had been renewed, not for just one, but two more seasons.
The British-French drama has been a huge hit with its flurry of murders and cryptic investigations – but after more than a decade, those behind the scenes are guaranteeing more thrills and twists in the years to come.
Executive producer Tim Key said at the time of the announcement: “We are hugely proud of series ten and delighted we’ll be heading back to Saint Marie to continue the story.
“Our amazing cast and crew have delivered against the odds this year and we can’t wait to get going again – we’ve got huge plans for the future, with lots of surprises to come.”
That will be music to fans’ ears with the show continuing to be among the best crime dramas in the UK, despite its longevity.
When will Death in Paradise be back on TV?
Season ten of Death in Paradise comes to a close tonight (Thursday, February 18) in the eighth episode.
It had been a difficult time getting this year’s viewing on TV for its usual January slot after the coronavirus pandemic halted production for three months.
With Covid still a part of everyday life around the world, it could be another battle to get season 11 ready for January 2022 – with filming hoping to begin this spring.
What happened in season 10?
It has been another interesting season for DI Parker as he ended back in hospital – this time for an allergic reaction to a sandfly bite in episode four.
But at least he saw the return of DS Florence Cassell – although she was whisked off to London later in the series.
The season has been murders galore with a TV reporter, archaeologist, lottery winner and concert pianist among the victims.
Yet, back in the precinct, DS Camille Bordey was back – standing in for Cassell – as the commissioner’s daughter helped Parker with the latest cases.
But with the finale on tonight, Death in Paradise fans fear that it could be the end of the line for Ralf Little’s character DI Parker.
