‘Grantchester‘ is a British criminal drama series based on James Runcie’s short story series ‘The Grantchester Mysteries.’ It is set in the 1950s and follows Reverend Sidney Chambers of Grantchester, who develops a talent for solving crime cases and so assists the namesake parish’s busy Detective Inspector Geordie Keating. Chambers’ replacement, Will Davenport, takes on a similar position in the subsequent seasons. Daisy Coulam created the detective drama for television, which originally aired on ITV in October 2014. Following that, in January 2015, the series was shown on PBS in the United States. Critics have praised the program over its six seasons, and it has amassed legions of admirers. If you’re a fan who can’t get enough of Grantchester’s investigative escapades, you’ll be excited to discover more about the show’s upcoming return to our screens with all-new episodes. So, when is Grantchester Season 7 returning?
Grantchester Season 7: When Will It Be Released?
Season 6 of ‘Grantchester’ debuted on PBS on October 3, 2021. Prior to its debut in the United States, the season premiered in the United Kingdom on ITV on September 3, 2021, and concluded on October 22, 2021.
