ACORN TV SECURES EXCLUSIVE US PREMIERE RIGHTS FOR UPCOMING 22ND SEASON OF "MIDSOMER MURDERS" FROM ALL3MEDIA INTERNATIONAL

One of the most popular British mysteries worldwide returns with two feature-length mysteries on April 19; followed by four more mysteries this fall ONLY on Acorn TV

London, UK; April 7, 2021 - In a major coup for the service, AMC Networks' Acorn TV has secured the exclusive SVOD and U.S. Premiere rights to the highly-sought after new season of MIDSOMER MURDERS from leading international distributor all3media international. With more than two decades of intriguing mysteries, Midsomer Murders is one of the most popular and longest-running mystery series of all-time and remains one of Acorn TV's top performing franchises and a fan favorite.

Acorn TV will exclusively premiere the first two feature-length episodes of Series 22 beginning on Monday, April 19, 2021. Series 22's remaining four feature-length mysteries will debut this fall shortly after production concludes. In Midsomer Murders, Detective Chief Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon) and Detective Sergeant Winter (Nick Hendrix) investigate homicides, blackmail, greed, and betrayal in England's most murderous county. Subscribers can also watch the first 21 seasons of the series anytime on Acorn TV.

Matthew Graham, General Manager of Acorn TV, said "Midsomer Murders remains one of the most popular mystery series of all-time and is beloved by our subscribers, so Acorn TV is thrilled to exclusively offer new episodes on April 19th, as soon as they are available, as well as four more mysteries later this year. Given the importance of this series to the mystery genre and British television lovers worldwide, we know fans have been anxiously awaiting the new season, so we're excited to be the only place in the U.S. to watch all 22 seasons."

Called "A must for British mystery fans" (Los Angeles Times), "Powerfully entertaining" (The Wall Street Journal) and "Phenomenally enjoyable... this show has only gotten better and better through the years" (Paper Magazine), Midsomer Murders has thrilled since its first broadcast on ITV on March 23, 1997 and soon thereafter on Acorn home video and later streaming on Acorn TV. Inspired by the novels of Caroline Graham, modern master of the English village mystery, the ongoing series starred John Nettles (Bergerac) as Detective Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby in the first 13 seasons and now stars his cousin Detective Chief Inspector John Barnaby, Neil Dudgeon (Series 14-22). In its first 21 seasons, victims have met their bizarre ends via a candlestick, a slide projector, a poisonous frog, a Celtic spear, toxic fungi, vintage claret, decapitation, King Neptune's trident, among many other ways. Midsomer Murders is shown in over 200 territories worldwide, and Foyle's War and Alex Rider creator Anthony Horowitz was an early scriptwriter for the series and suggested its title.

Over the years, the Barnabys have solved more than 300 murders and the series has featured an incredible mix of up-and-coming guest stars in early roles, including Orlando Bloom (Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings), Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who), Henry Cavill (Justice League), Colin Farrell (True Detective), Samantha Bond (Downton Abbey), Emily Mortimer (The Newsroom), and Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey).
