EXCLUSIVE: Sister Boniface will be making a return to BBC One after all. Sources tell TVWise that BBC One is finalising a deal to acquire the UK rights to Father Brown spin-off series The Sister Boniface Mysteries for their daytime schedule. Production on both Father Brown season 9 and The Sister Boniface Mysteries was impacted by the COVID pandemic, but I'm hearing both are now on track to premiere either later this year or in early 2022.

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.
