The popular mystery series Grantchester is coming back for a sixth series after ITV and PBS Masterpiece renewed the drama.
Set in the village of Grantchester, which also happens to be crime-ridden, the series follows the unlikely investigating partnership between detective Geordie Keating (Robson) and vicar Will Davenport (Tom).
The news was shared by Tom Brittney and Robson Green during an Instagram Live with the actors. During their conversation, the men shared some fun behind-the-scenes stories.
Robson said that he was “so happy” that the show was returning. “I can eat, again. It’s a miracle,” he joked.
He was told to keep September to January free. “I think it’s going be strange, I just hope the scripts aren’t dictated too much by something beyond our control but I’m sure they will be,” he said.
Tom, who said that he was keen to get back to his “happy place”, added, “It’s looking good, Grantchester could be one of the first things filming,” he said. “You can’t write COVID into the 1950s.”
Robson also said that the mystery of DI Geordie Keating’s hat will be revealed in series six. “In every series, part of the costume is his hat. I’ve only worn it twice but I carry it round with me. You find out in the next season why I carry the hat. It’s not just about the hat, maybe there’s something under his hat that may be revealed,” he said.
