The Vicar and Cop are back! Grantchester Season 2 starring James Norton and Robson Green will air Sunday, March 27-May 1, 2016 at 9pm ET on MASTERPIECE on PBS.

James Norton (War and Peace) dons his priestly collar and Robson Green (Reckless) his rumpled raincoat for a new season of Grantchester as the improbable crime-fighting team, Reverend Sidney Chambers and Inspector Geordie Keating, bring justice and spiritual nourishment to early 1950s England.

Based on the popular Sidney Chambers mystery novels by James Runcie, Grantchester was praised by critics far and wide during its premiere season. The Wall Street Journal judged it "glorious;" The Orlando Sentinel, "compelling;" USA Today, "charming;" The Los Angeles Times, "guilelessly entertaining;" and The New York Daily News, "visually engaging...romantic."

Still unresolved from last season is Sidney's love life. Handsome, worldly-wise, and virtuous, he should be an ideal catch. And at least one very promising female companion turns up in the new series. But will Sidney scare her away with his unconventional taste for jazz, blood-splattered crime scenes, and a married woman?

The new season's cases include a shocking charge of sexual assault that turns into a homicide investigation implicating a pillar of the community; an apparent suicide from the college spire that takes on Cold War overtones: a confession to murder in which the alleged victim is still very much alive; a haunted stable with links to the Holocaust and more.
