BBC Renews Beyond Paradise


Beyond Paradise has been recommissioned for a third season and a Christmas special, set to air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

The popular series, which is a spin-off of the long-running Death in Paradise, is a co-commission between the BBC and BritBox International and is produced by Red Planet Pictures. The second season saw Humphrey and Martha nearly tie the knot, while drama ensued elsewhere.

Beyond Paradise is internationally distributed by BBC Studios.

Tim Key, executive producer for Red Planet Pictures, said: “The response to series two has been fantastic. So much love goes into the making of the show, and we’re delighted that the audience have enjoyed it so much. We can’t wait to get back to Shipton Abbott for another Christmas special and series to continue the story and learn more about our characters and the town they live in—I can promise that we’ll be making the viewers laugh, cry, laugh a bit more and then baffling them with a series of ingenious puzzles. There will also be a duck.”

Lindsay Salt, director of BBC Drama, commented: “Beyond Paradise has become such a huge hit with millions of viewers across the U.K. It’s a show that is absolutely on a roll, and we’re beyond pleased to bring more fiendishly clever mysteries from the Shipton Abbott team to the BBC.”
