‘Grantchester’ is back: Watch exciting first trailer for Season 6!

PBS has released a two-minute preview for the new season of Grantchester.

Based on the novels by James Runcie, the popular ’50s crime drama series returns in the UK next month on ITV.

Outlander actor Tom Brittney is back as clergyman Will Davenport, alongside Robson Green (Soldier Soldier) as DI Geordie Keating.

It’ll be the longest Grantchester season yet, featuring eight episodes rather than the usual six!

Watch the Season 6 trailer:


The official synopsis reads: “It’s 1958 and trouble is brewing in the Cambridgeshire village of Grantchester.

“Reverend Will Davenport (Tom Brittney) relishes his role as a firebrand vicar, willing to rock the boat and challenge conventions to help people. But the very role he loves put him at odds with his own ideals when his kind-hearted curate, Leonard Finch (Al Weaver) is caught up in a scandal.

“Will’s best friend, Detective Inspector Geordie Keating (Robson Green), finds his principles shaken, housekeeper Mrs Chapman (Tessa Peake-Jones) is distraught, and Geordie’s wife Cathy (Kacey Ainsworth) is defiant.

“With new crimes around every corner, and morality and legality at loggerheads, it’s going to take all of Will’s skill and empathy to navigate these choppy waters and help the ones he loves.”

Season 6 premieres in the UK at 9pm on Friday 3rd September on ITV.

The opening instalment finds the vicarage family and the Keatings on a much-needed summer break at Merries Holiday Camp – only for it to turn into something of a busman’s holiday for Will and Geordie, when the camp’s owner is found dead in suspicious circumstances.

The new episodes will then arrive on American screens from Sunday 3rd October on PBS.

A seventh season of Grantchester recently began filming in England!

Set to premiere in 2022, Season 7 will be set in 1959 and we’ve got the first details here.

Grantchester is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
