Grantchester Season 6 Begins Filming
(October 1, 2020) Filming for the sixth season of the hugely popular crime drama Grantchester has begun in the UK. The new season is expected to broadcast on PBS’ MASTERPIECE in 2021.
With Robson Green returning as DI Geordie Keating and Tom Brittney as Grantchester’s Reverend Will Davenport, the series resumes in 1958 with the crime fighting duo renewing their partnership to solve new cases.
In the first episode of the new series, Geordie, Cathy, Will, Leonard and Mrs. C take a much-needed holiday together. However, what sets out to be a fun-filled break for everyone at a holiday camp, is interrupted by a tragic death at the resort. Geordie and Will are left with no choice but to help out, as an investigation into the death begins. As events unfold on the trip, there will be serious repercussions for the rest of the series.
