The fourth season of Grantchester will premiere on ITV on Friday January 11th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Grantchester is set in the 1950s and follows an unlikely crime-fighting duo – the charismatic, charming clergyman Sidney Chambers and gruff, down-to-earth Police Inspector Geordie Keating. The drama series is produced by Kudos and stars James Norton, Robson Green, Al Weaver, Tessa Peake-Jones and Kacey Ainsworth.
Original star James Norton is set to exit this season. To fill the void, Tom Brittney is joining the cast as Reverend Will Davenport. A man of the people, confident, caring and self-assured, Grantchester’s young, new parish priest channels his boundless energy into a quest for social justice. He is a man of God, but with the devil inside of him. As Geordie draws him into righting the wrongs of criminal Cambridge, Will’s own troubled past is unearthed.
Grantchester is based on the novels by James Runcie and was developed for television by Daisy Coulam, who penned the scripts for the new season alongside John Jackson. Kudos and Masterpiece are producing, with Richard Cookson serving as the series producer. The executive producers are Diederick Santer, Emma Kingsman-Lloyd and Daisy Coulam for Kudos and Rebecca Eaton at WGBH Boston for Masterpiece. Tim Fywell directed the opening two episodes.
