'Death in Paradise' will hit screens next year after the BBC commissioned it for a sixth series
'Death in Paradise' is set to return for its sixth series.
The light-hearted crime drama has been given the go-ahead for another sun-soaked season next year following a ratings success of over six million throughout its fifth run.
Tim Key, executive producer at the BBC, said: "I'm delighted that the fifth series of 'Death In Paradise' has proved so popular. We've got more ambitious plans for series six, with a whole host of intriguing puzzles as well as the joy of working with our amazing cast and guest stars. We can't wait to get back to Guadeloupe and start shooting."
The next installment will consist of eight hour-long episodes as goofy DI Humphrey Goodman, played by Kris Marshall, attempts to solve murders alongside his Honore police team.
But it's not just his impressive talent at solving mind-boggling crimes on the fictional island of Saint Marie that keep viewers tuned in every week as DI Humphrey's clumsy habits and disastrous love life also keeps fans gripped.
Meanwhile, series five's finale is set to be an explosive one as it'll see the wedding of the hapless hunk's colleague JP Hooper (Tobi Bakare) as he reminisces on his own love life.
But, although he's struggling to snap up a companion on the warm sandy island, series six could see the DI fall in love.
