Death in Paradise Lands Two-Season Recommission


Death in Paradise has been recommissioned for two more seasons and two feature-length Christmas special episodes for BBC One and iPlayer.

Filmed on the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, Death in Paradise follows Saint Marie’s crime-fighting team as they solve complex and mysterious murder cases, joined by an array of guest stars each week.

Lindsay Salt, director of BBC Drama, said: “With its sparkling blend of mystery, humor and heart, Death in Paradise continues to delight the millions of us who make the return trip to Saint Marie with every sun-drenched episode. It is a program that goes from strength to strength, and I could not be happier that it will return for another two series and specials on BBC One and iPlayer.”

Tim Key, executive producer at Red Planet Pictures, said: “The response to series 12 has been incredible, so we’re delighted that we’ll be heading back to Guadeloupe for at least two more series! We’ve got an amazing and joyful Christmas special in store, and then series 13 begins with our 100th episode, so we’ve got plenty of surprises ready to celebrate that milestone. We’ve got huge plans for the future and can’t wait to get going again.”
