It was recently confirmed that Father Brown has been renewed for a new season.
Set in the Cotswolds in the early 1950s and based on the stories by GK Chesterton, Father Brown launched in 2013 and Season 6 began airing last December.
However, fans will have to wait until next year to see the new episodes.
Dan McGolpin, Controller of BBC Programming and Daytime has revealed: “Father Brown will be back in early 2019 solving crimes in the Cotswolds and viewers can prepare for an enticing new series on BBC Daytime and the BBC iPlayer.”
Will Trotter, Head of Daytime Drama, BBC Studios added that the new season “is set to be the best one yet.”
BBC One’s daytime crime drama stars Harry Potter actor Mark Williams as a crime-solving Roman Catholic priest.
Father Brown is available to buy now on DVD.
The official synopsis for Season 7 teases: “When Lady Felicia (Nancy Carroll) returns from Northern Rhodesia in need of help, Father Brown is forced to conclude that none other than Hercule Flambeau (John Light) may be her greatest ally. Meanwhile a familiar face returns to Kembleford when a notorious police killer is spotted near the village, putting Sergeant Goodfellow (John Burton) in grave danger.”
