What's next in store for Ralf Little's Neville? Will he stick with his decision or make a change?

Death in Paradise series 13 potential release date: When is the show returning?

Currently, there has been no official announcement regarding when Death in Paradise will return for season 13... although we do know that it's been renewed for two full series and two feature-length Christmas specials.

The series has been running for so long now and remains so popular that, unless there had been a major or unexpected shake-up, there's no way they would have cancelled the series without at least a final season or special.

As for a concrete release date, we'll let you know when we hear something more official – most recently, the BBC has usually aired a festive special between Christmas and New Year, followed by a full series launch shortly after, in early January.

Death in Paradise season 13 cast: Who will be back?

At the end of season 12, after a lot of soul-searching, Neville Parker decided to remain on Saint Marie for the time being. So Ralf Little will be back in action.

He'll be more than likely joined by the Commissioner, played by Don Warrington.

Other key cast members currently include:

• Shantol Jackson (DS Naomi Thompson)
• Tahj Miles (Officer Marlon Pryce)
• Ginny Holder (Trainee Darlene Curtis)
• Elizabeth Bourgine (Catherine Bourday)

Of course, none of this will be confirmed until we get that all-important casting announcement.

Death in Paradise season 13 plot: What will happen in the new episodes?

Well, Death in Paradise is largely a police procedural – so expect some alarmingly elaborate murder plots coming your way.

While the rest of the team has some small storylines, they haven't ever tangled into their work as much as this season... so there is a chance there could be more on the horizon for them if the show continues to develop this way.

After deciding to remain on Saint Marie after one last conversation with killer ex-girlfriend Sophie, Neville might be struggling to find love again... but you never know.

Beyond that, your guess is as good as ours, but we'll let you know if the cast and crew let us into any tidbits and plans.
