MASTERPIECE on PBS Announces New Season of Grantchester

James Norton to Make Final Appearance as Crime-Solving Vicar

April 12, 2018 Boston, MA - Good news for Grantchester fans: MASTERPIECE on PBS and ITV have announced a fourth season of the popular mystery series starring James Norton and Robson Green as the unlikely clergyman/cop duo fighting crime in the English hamlet of Grantchester in the 1950s.

These will be the final episodes for Norton's character Sidney Chambers, the charismatic, jazz-loving vicar who has captured the hearts of millions of viewers. Casting of a new vicar will be announced at a later date. In addition to Mr. Green, returning members of Grantchester's ensemble cast include Al Weaver, Tessa Peake-Jones and Kacey Ainsworth.

"It's a bittersweet time for Grantchester fans, who will be cheering the return of the series but crushed to say good-bye to James," says MASTERPIECE Executive Producer Rebecca Eaton at WGBH Boston. "We want to assure them that the series they love will continue - with brilliant new episodes and a captivating new vicar."

"I'm ecstatic that - with Masterpiece and ITV - we are returning to Grantchester with all our favourite characters," says Kudos Executive Producer Diederick Santer. "While I'm sad that these will be James Norton's final episodes, we will make sure he goes out with a bang. We've got exciting plans for where the show is heading and the vicarage won't be vacant for long."

Almost 11 million U.S. viewers tuned in to Grantchester's third season to watch Sidney choosing between Amanda (Morven Christie) and the church; Detective Geordie Keating (Green) working to repair his tattered marriage; Mrs. Maguire (Peake-Jones) becoming Mrs. Chapman, and Leonard (Weaver) on the verge of finding love.

MASTERPIECE has commissioned Grantchester's fourth season, which begins production in June in London, Cambridge, and Grantchester. It will air on MASTERPIECE on PBS in 2019.
