[via press release from ITV]

Grantchester will return to ITV for a fifth series

Grantchester, starring Robson Green and Tom Brittney, will return to ITV for a fifth series.

In series four, which aired on ITV earlier this year, young, new parish priest Will Davenport (Tom Brittney) became DI Geordie Keating's (Robson Green) new crime-fighting partner.

Series five picks up a year later, in Cambridge in 1957, the year Prime Minister Harold Macmillan told the British people that they had 'never had it so good'. For many of the residents of Grantchester, it really will feel like they're in a delightful new Eden, but for all the talk of paradise on earth and faith-in-action, Geordie Keating knows that trouble is never far away.

Kudos Executive Producer Emma Kingsman-Lloyd says:

"We are very excited that Grantchester is returning for a fifth series. The audience has taken the pairing of Robson Green and Tom Brittney to their hearts and we are delighted to be able to continue the story of Geordie and Will with Masterpiece and ITV. "

Grantchester will start shooting this summer in Cambridgeshire, with further casting news set to be announced in due course. The series will be Executive Produced for Kudos by Emma Kingsman-Lloyd and by writer/creator Daisy Coulam. The Executive Producer for MASTERPIECE is Rebecca Eaton at WGBH Boston. Series five will be produced by Richard Cookson and directed by Gordon Anderson, Christiana Ebohon-Green and Rob Evans. Adapted from the Grantchester Mysteries novels by James Runcie, the series was developed for television by Daisy Coulam and written by Daisy Coulam and John Jackson, Carey Andrews, Jake Riddell and Joshua St Johnston.

A co-production between Kudos, part of Endemol Shine UK, and MASTERPIECE for ITV, Grantchester is distributed by Endemol Shine International and has sold across 176 countries.
