Father Brown is getting a spin-off. Britbox has ordered The Sister Boniface Mysteries, a ten episode drama revolving around the character of Sister Boniface who originally appeared in the first season of Father Brown. Lorna Watson is on-board to reprise her role as the sleuthing nun. It's worth noting that this has only been commissioned for the U.S. arm of BritBox and at present there is no UK broadcaster attached to the project. It is not immediately clear if BBC One, who commission and air parent series Father Brown, will look to acquire the spin-off.
