PBS reveals ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ Season 4 premiere date

It’s been officially confirmed when All Creatures Great and Small is back!

A fourth season of Channel 5’s popular period drama started filming in Yorkshire in March.

Based on author James Herriot’s much-loved collection of stories, the series follows the heartwarming and humorous adventures of a young country vet in the Yorkshire Dales in the 1930s.

All Creatures returns in the UK this autumn on Channel 5 with six brand new episodes, followed by another Christmas special in December.

Fortunately, viewers in the US won’t have to wait too long to catch up…

When’s the release date?

Season 4 begins at 9/8c on Sunday 7 January 2024 on PBS Masterpiece.

Very excitingly, the latest run of All Creatures Great and Small will be airing back-to-back with the fourth season of Miss Scarlet and The Duke on Sunday nights through January and February.

“Returning to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, Season 4 continues with timeless tales and heart-warming stories, picking up in springtime of 1940 with change on the horizon for everyone in Skeldale House,” the official synopsis reveals.

“James and Helen wonder when the right time might be to start a family, not knowing whether or not James will be called up to serve in the Royal Air Force (RAF).

“Tristan’s absence is felt by all, but no one more than Siegfried who attempts to hold the growing household, and himself, together as he braves this new world.

“Mrs Hall and Helen’s friendship blossoms as they look to the future and new trainee veterinary student Richard Carmody arrives, causing complications in the house.”

Here’s a sneak peek at new cast member James Anthony-Rose (Slow HorsesPennyworth) as the “studious but somewhat unworldly” Richard:

Channel 5 is expected to announce the UK premiere date for Season 4 very soon.

While Callum Woodhouse won’t be back in the upcoming episodes, the Tristan actor can be seen in a new mystery-horror film called One of Us.

Also coming up is a “coming-of-age story with a twist” starring Mrs Pumphrey actress Patricia Hodge, titled Arthur’s Whisky, which sounds like it could be fun!

All Creatures Great and Small is available to watch on PBS Masterpiece via Amazon Prime with a free 7-day trial.
