Season five of UK mystery drama GRANTCHESTER premieres this weekend on ABC

This Sunday will see the premiere of the fifth season of ITV series Grantchester.

Reverend Will Davenport (Tom Brittney) is now fully at ease with his role as the Vicar of Grantchester, and happy helping solve mysteries alongside his friend, Detective Inspector Geordie Keating (Robson Green).

For Will, a version of Eden is within everyone’s reach, but Geordie knows that human nature is unpredictable, and every Eden has its snakes…

When a student from a prestigious all-female college is found dead, Will and Geordie must infiltrate the murky world of campus politics and university societies to find the killer.

Navigating strange initiations, raucous parties – and with investigative journalist, Ellie Harding (Lauren Carse), hot on their heels – they’ll need to use every advantage to unravel this mystery…

Meanwhile, Geordie and Cathy (Kacey Ainsworth) are rubbing along together – just about but are Cathy’s ambitions for a life of her own starting to test the delicate family balance?

And curate Leonard (Al Weaver), fresh from a spell with Daniel (Oliver Dimsdale) in Marrakech, finds it hard to acclimatise to living half-a-life back in Grantchester, especially with Mrs C (Tessa Peake-Jones) and Jack (Nick Brimble) in marital bliss…

Production details: Co-Production of Kudos, an Endemol Shine Group company and MASTERPIECE for ITV. Adapted from the Grantchester Mysteries novels by James Runcie. Developed for television by Daisy Coulam.

Grantchester Series 5 premieres Sunday 20 September 8.35pm on ABC and iview
