Following today’s season 4 finale, what will the Grantchester season 5 premiere date be over on PBS? That is the focus of this very piece!
Let’s kick off this piece with a dose of good news — there will, in fact, be another season! The fourth season was undoubtedly a big risk, given that you were saying goodbye to James Norton and bringing on board Tom Brittney. These sort of transitions are never easy, especially when you are thinking about an actor so beloved and important to the series. Yet, both ITV and PBS are giving the show another go, and we can already tell you that there is work being done behind the scenes!
If you look below via Twitter, you can learn that the season 5 read-through for Grantchester happened just last night with most of the cast present. They are already working on new episodes, and that suggests to us that the release window for season 5 will be relatively similar to season 4. Our anticipation is that the new episodes will air in the first half of 2020 on ITV, and then once more in the summer on PBS. Even though Grantchester is not a show that films a lot of episodes per season, they pack a lot of content in.
Because of the fact that Grantchester season 5 is going to feature (more than likely) a stable cast throughout, we have a feeling that there is some excellent drama coming up. There doesn’t have to be any focus on replacing someone; instead, it’s about this sleepy town and some of the character who inhabit it. Will can get used to his position, and Geordie can build a partnership with him that will hopefully last some time … or at least some additional seasons on both of these networks.
Unfortunately, be prepared to wait for a LONG period of time in order to ensure that Grantchester comes back on the air. Maybe ITV will reveal more details later this year but we wouldn’t be shocked if it’s 2020 before we get some more official intel on the series and what lies ahead.
