BBC ‘orders second spin-off from Death in Paradise that will be even bolder than first’


The BBC has reportedly ordered a second Death In Paradise spin-off.

The hit series – which follows a detective inspector who solves murders in the Caribbean – recently finished airing its 13th season, with spin-off Beyond Paradise set to air from February 2023.

Now, insiders have claimed that a real-life version titled Policing Paradise is coming soon, which will focus on the work of real investigators in a tropical location.

A TV source told The Mirror: ‘It looks at what the real-life police are up to, as opposed to the fictional ones in Death in Paradise – and there’s quite a difference.’

The insider also teased that viewers will also find out that in real life, crimes are not solved as often or as easily as they would be in the fictional program.

The BBC has reportedly ordered a second Death In Paradise spin-off, shortly after the end of series 13

The first spin-off, which follows DI Humphrey Goodman as he starts a new life in Devon, airs from February 2023.

A source said: ‘Viewers who are used to crime being solved every week may find that the reality is not so neat.’

A BBC spokesman declined to comment.

In April, it was confirmed that the show would have its first ever female lead taking the reins on Return To Paradise.

Set in sun-drenched Australia, it will follow DI Mackenzie Clarke, played by Anna Samson, as she attempts to solve a series of mysterious murders.

After spending time working for London’s Metropolitan Police, she is accused of tampering with evidence, forcing her to return to her hated home downstairs.

According to the broadcaster, the six-part series will have a «distinctly Australian feel» while still paying homage to the original series, and will debut on BBC1 and iPlayer later this year.

It is the second spin-off of the franchise, after Kris Marshall’s DI Humphrey Goodman left sun-drenched Saint Marie for a new life in Devon in Beyond Paradise.

The official synopsis for the new series reads: «Return to Paradise follows DI Mackenzie Clarke, an Australian ex-pat who has made a name for herself in London’s Metropolitan Police for solving unsolvable murder cases».

“When Mackenzie is accused of tampering with evidence, she returns to Australia, back to the last place she ever wanted to be – her hometown of Dolphin Cove.

«Mackenzie, who ran away from town six years ago and infamously left her ex-fiancée Glenn (Tai Hara) at the altar, is not welcome there.»
