Death In Paradise renewed for two more seasons
'Death In Paradise' has been renewed for two more series and two Christmas specials.
The BBC show - starring Ralf Little - has just aired its 12th season but viewers can expect a return to the fictional island Saint Marie.
Lindsay Salt, Director of BBC Drama said: "With its sparkling blend of mystery, humour 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 programme 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."
The show films on the French Caribbean Island of Guadeloupe and follows Little's DI Neville Parker and his team as they fight crime.
Tim Key, Executive Producer, from 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."
'Death in Paradise' is one of the widest-selling British dramas. BBC Studios over the past 10 years has distributed the show to over 240 territories around the world including Australia, France, South Africa and the US.
