Acorn TV to Debut New Midsomer Murders Season


Acorn TV has secured the exclusive SVOD and U.S. premiere rights for the new season of Midsomer Murders from All3Media International.

Acorn TV will exclusively premiere the first two feature-length episodes of season 22 on April 19. The remaining four feature-length mysteries from the new season will debut this fall shortly after production wraps.

In Midsomer Murders, Detective Chief Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon) and Detective Sergeant Winter (Nick Hendrix) investigate homicides, blackmail, greed and betrayal in England’s most murderous county.

Subscribers can watch the first 21 seasons of the series on Acorn TV.

Matthew Graham, general manager of Acorn TV, said: “Midsomer Murders remains one of the most popular mystery series of all-time and is beloved by our subscribers, so Acorn TV is thrilled to exclusively offer new episodes on April 19, as soon as they are available, as well as four more mysteries later this year. Given the importance of this series to the mystery genre and British television lovers worldwide, we know fans have been anxiously awaiting the new season, so we’re excited to be the only place in the U.S. to watch all 22 seasons.”
