‘Father Brown’ star reveals exciting Season 10 update

The new season of Father Brown is getting closer!

Based on the stories by GK Chesterton, BBC One’s period crime drama follows the titular clerical sleuth’s mystery-solving skills in the Cotswolds during the early 1950s.

Father Brown celebrated its 100th episode earlier this year, and fans learned this summer that the show would be returning for a tenth season.

John Burton, who plays Sergeant Goodfellow, revealed that production on Season 10 had begun in England back in May.

The actor has since confirmed that filming of the ten brand new episodes is now complete.

Burton wrote on Twitter: “Well, that’s me ‘wrapped’, on series 10 of Father Brown. I had a fab time during the glorious summer months in the Cotswolds, I met so many new friends, it was tough saying goodbye this year. For now, there’s only one thing left to say … “Sgt Goodfellow – over & out” xx”

The Sergeant Goodfellow star previously shared that it was “a delight coming to work” and intriguingly hinted that Season 10 will be “a bit different – but I know you’re going to LOVE it.”

Fortunately, it’s not too much longer before we find out what he means!

After the long two-year wait between the eighth and ninth season due to Covid-related filming delays, the show is now back into its regular production routine.

Father Brown director Seán Gleeson has confirmed that the new season is “coming your way early 2023.”

With the shoot wrapped up on schedule, we can safely assume that the show will return in January, like every previous season has done since its debut in 2013.

Season 10 will once again air on BBC One in the UK, streaming on BBC iPlayer, and on BritBox in the US.

Also coming up in 2023 is a second season of Sister Boniface Mysteries.

The new Father Brown spin-off series launched on BritBox this February.

Set in the 1960s, the show follows the character of Sister Boniface, played by Lorna Watson (Watson & Oliver).

Father Brown is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
