Bosses have been given the go-ahead to resume filming for 'Death in Paradise' after it was suspended over Hurricane Irma
Filming for 'Death in Paradise has resumed after it was suspended over Hurricane Irma.
Bosses decided to halt shooting for the seventh series of the drama in Guadeloupe recently after the island's authorities issuing a red warning alert to all of its residents regarding the catastrophic storm, which is the most powerful hurricane ever recorded over the Atlantic Ocean, but the cameras have started rolling again now, according to Digital Spy.
A spokesperson for the show previously said: "The production team are in constant contact with the authorities in Guadeloupe and as soon as the red signal was alerted, filming was suspended immediately. The safety of the cast and crew remains paramount and when we are given the all-clear, filming will recommence."
The sun-soaked crime drama has been shot in Guadeloupe for the past six years and it's not just the British public who thoroughly enjoy it being recomissioned every year.
Tim Key, Executive Producer of the show, said previously: "From the day we first visited Guadeloupe and the beautiful harbour town of Deshaies, we knew we had found the perfect place to base our new show. Seven years later, the town and its people are at the heart of 'Death in Paradise', and have become good friends to cast and crew, making it a joy to return every year. We're filming series seven right now, with lots of local people on our crew, and it's as much fun as ever. We can't wait for viewers to see what we've got in store."
The seventh series of 'Death in Paradise' will see Ardal O'Hanlon take on the lead role as DI Jack Mooney following the departure of Kris Marshall, who played DI Humphrey Goodman.
Of his new role, Ardal said earlier this year: "I am delighted to be joining 'Death in Paradise' and exploring what's made Mooney up and leave London for a life in the Caribbean. I've already had a taste of filming in Guadeloupe and can't wait to get back."
