The hit crime drama is currently back in production in Guadeloupe.
The beeb have teased that Jack will be caught off guard by a “surprise kiss” in the forthcoming episodes. The ninth series will also see the addition of new series regular DS Madeline Dumas, played by Aude Legastelois.
The award-winning drama will continue to keep the audience guessing with mind-boggling puzzles, cunningly clever plot twists and a star-studded guest cast.
Returning alongside O’Hanlon are Tobi Bakare (Officer JP Hooper), Shyko Amos (Officer Ruby Patterson), Don Warrington (commissioner Selwyn Patterson) and Elizabeth Bourgine (Catherine Bordey).
“We’re thrilled to be back in Guadeloupe with our fantastic cast and crew getting to work on more ingenious murder mysteries in the Caribbean sun. We can’t wait for the audience to see what we’ve got in store for series nine – there are some big surprises coming.” – Tim Key, Executive Producer
Since launching in 2011, Death In Paradise has been a ratings hit for the beeb with an average of seven million viewers tuning in to series eight. The drama is produced by Red Planet Pictures.
