‘Grantchester’ return date announced: When does Season 5 start?

Grantchester is back next month!

Based on James Runcie’s novels, ITV’s period drama series set in the 1950s launched five years ago.

A fourth season aired earlier this year, introducing Outlander actor Tom Brittney as DI Geordie Keating’s new crime-solving partner, clergyman Will Davenport, following the departure of original star James Norton.

Six new episodes of Grantchester began filming this summer in Cambridgeshire, England.

Season 5 premieres in the UK at 9pm on Friday 10th January on ITV.

Alongside returning cast members Robson Green and Tom Brittney, co-stars Al Weaver, Tessa Peake-Jones and Kacey Ainsworth are also reprising their roles as Leonard Finch, Mrs Chapman and Cathy Keating.

The new season picks up in 1957; a year after the events of Season 4’s finale.

James Norton can be seen later this month in the new movie adaptation of Little Women.

The fifth season of Grantchester will air in the US later in 2020 on PBS.

Grantchester is available on DVD on Amazon.
