Grantchester Season 7
It’s the long, hot summer of 1959, and questions of what the future holds for our favorite vicar-detective-duo and their friends are complicated when murder returns to the idyllic English village of Grantchester.

Guilt Season 2
Darkly comic Scottish thriller Guilt will return for its second season to MASTERPIECE on Sunday, August 28 at 9/8c, picking up two years after the action of Season 1 with four new episodes full of twists, turns, and deception. Mark Bonnar returns as cocksure, cutthroat lawyer Max; Emun Elliot returns as now-sober detective Kenny; and new cast members include Phyllis Logan (Downton Abbey‘s Mrs. Hughes) and Sara Vickers (Endeavour‘s Joan Thursday) as mother and daughter. We don’t want to spoil Season 1 for those who haven’t seen it—watch for the first time or all over again right now with PBS Passport—but suffice to say that though the show is called Guilt, the vibe is…revenge! To get you through the summer while you wait, make sure to check out our roundup of intriguing facts about Mark Bonnar and Guilt and watch the stars explain the show’s quintessentially Scottish dark humor.
Van der Valk Season 2
In three all-new episodes airing Sundays, September 25-October 9 at 9/8c, maverick detective Piet Van der Valk (Marc Warren, Beecham House) and his team return to face high profile cases and gritty murders that immerse them in contemporary Amsterdam’s contrasting worlds, from artists living as squatters to a philosophy-obsessed serial killer; from the city’s dazzling diamond trade to the dysfunction of its ruling family; and from the vibrant world of classical music to the dark heart of sex trafficking.
Miss Scarlet and The Duke Season 2
Victorian London’s most delicious detective duo-with-a-twist returns to MASTERPIECE for Season 2 on Sunday, October 16 at 8/7c. Watch the trailer now!
In Miss Scarlet and The Duke‘s six high-octane new episodes, aspiring detective Eliza Scarlet (Kate Phillips, Peaky Blinders) competes for cases, trades jabs, and even partners with her longtime friend/rival, The Duke (Stuart Martin, Jamestown), as their relationship delightfully and maddeningly simmers on.

Magpie Murders, premiering Sunday, October 16 at 9/8c on MASTERPIECE, is a fresh, beguiling twist on the traditional murder mystery, with a solution that will both astonish and shock viewers. Adapted from Anthony Horowitz’ bestselling novel by the author himself, Magpie Murders centers on book editor Susan Ryeland and the unfinished mystery manuscript featuring her unpleasant, prima donna author’s longtime detective, Atticus Pünd. When Susan attempts to attain the final chapters, she’s plunged into a shocking mystery case of her own—one which will change her life in ways she’d never expected. Artfully weaving between two interlocking time periods, the 1950s and the present day, Magpie Murders, starring Lesley Manville (Phantom Thread, World on Fire) as Susan Ryland and Timothy McMullan (Patrick Melrose, Foyle’s War) as fictional DI Atticus Pünd, is sure to delight even the most hard-boiled mystery fan!

Unforgotten‘s Nicola Walker has traded in cold cases for maritime murders as DI Annika Strandhed in Annika, a new police procedural with a wry wit, premiering Sunday, October 16 at 10/9c. Juggling enigmatic cases while trying to raise her rebellious teenage daughter, the droll and dry-witted skipper of Glasgow’s newly-formed Marine Homicide Unit drops literary references, breaks the fourth wall, and keeps viewers riveted through twists and turns galore. Walker is joined by Jamie Sives (Guilt) as DS Michael McAndrews, Annika’s old colleague; Katie Leung (The Nest, Roadkill) as DC Blair Ferguson, the forensic brains behind the unit; and Ukweli Roach (Grantchester) as DS Tyrone Clarke, the new cop at the station.
