Death in Paradise returns for season 11

One show that's been (comparatively) unaffected throughout the pandemic is Death in Paradise. Since much of it is filmed outdoors on an island, Red Planet Pictures was able to proceed mostly as normal, completing Series 10 in plenty of time for its early 2021 release in the UK.

Season 11 filmed as expected in 2021, and season 12 is filming in 2022 with a likely premiere date sometime in the winter of 2022/23. 

What's Happening on Death in Paradise in Season 11?

DI Neville Parker tries his hand at metal detecting…

As Series 10 premiered and the team celebrated the show's 10th anniversary, executive producer Tim Key said: 

We are hugely proud of series ten and delighted we’ll be heading back to Saint Marie to continue the story. Our amazing cast and crew have delivered against the odds this year and we can’t wait to get going again – we’ve got huge plans for the future, with lots of surprises to come.

Now that season 11 has aired in the UK, we know quite a bit more about what's happening – even if it hasn't aired in the US yet. We won't include any spoilers new to season 11, but we do know that we finally get some answers about what's going on between DS Florence Cassell and DI Neville Parker. After the season 10 cliffhanger, it's been a LONG wait for those of us wondering what might happen.

Season 11 began with an extra-long Christmas special that saw the return of Danny John-Jules as Dwayne Myers, but it didn't give us the answers so many of us wanted. We won't reveal too many details, but it was another cliffhanger (albeit slightly less dramatic this time). 

With the return of the “regular” season, the format gets back to normal and Florence and Neville and the rest of the team are back together – and the story of their possible romance and Florence's career future continues.

Cases in season 11 will include a kidnapping that soon turns into a murder case, a body on a local golf course, a skydiver murdered in mid-air, undercover work, and more. 

We're also introduced to a new member of the team, Sergeant Naomi Thomas (Shantol Jackson).

In the Meantime…Death in Paradise Books

While quite a few British TV mysteries are based on books, Death in Paradise is one of the rare exceptions where the books are actually based on the television series. Though some shows basically re-word episodes (like the books for The Good Life/Good Neighbors or Rosemary & Thyme) in the companion books, the Death in Paradise books offer entirely new mysteries. It's like watching lost, un-aired episodes.

Even better? So far, all the Death in Paradise novels feature DI Richard Poole. If you find yourself missing the original inspector, these books are a great way to enjoy him a little longer – and of course, since they're books, you get all those fun little details from the author/creator's mind.

The Death in Paradise novels are written by Robert Thorogood, creator of Death in Paradise. You can view them all below – and fair warning, the availability by format is a bit all over the place:

We're just hoping Mr. Thorogood sticks with DI Richard Poole. I've wondered whether that was the portrayal closest to what he imagined for the series, and perhaps that's why he went back to that particular inspector for the books.

Will You Be Watching Season 11 of Death in Paradise When It's Available?

Even though we don't always enjoy all the inspectors equally, Death in Paradise is still a fun mystery with good scenery and fun storylines. We'll definitely be tuning in. Will you?

  1. I can hardly wait! Death in Paradise is one of my favorite shows. I’ve watched all the episodes at least twice. I’m always surprised when I find something I missed the first time through.

  2. I am a fan of Death in Paradise and looking forward to the new series. Season 11
    Too bad it will not appear before May 3!!!! We have to wait another month for the showing.

  3. Where is the frist actress Camille She was the best let her find love and her mom I love them both bring her back with a the actor with the long hair

    • I love Death In Paradise Ardal O’Hanlon and Danny John-Jules
      Series 11 and 12

  4. Hey. Does the new guy ever become a real man or does he go through the entire
    Season scratching whining spraying himself & fainting…I mean he screams when he sees a tiny lizard. Wow.

    • Ruby, remember that these DIs have been sent to the island from England, so if he screamed when he saw a lizard (I must have missed that episode), it’s understandable. I’m sure he never saw a live lizard in his home or apartment in England. This new DI is the most attractive of all the DIs they’ve had so I like the attraction he has for his female colleague (forgot her name–Helen?) and wonder if the writers will expand on that although they’ve already given her a boyfriend.

  5. I absolutely love Death In Paradise. Without a doubt, Ardal O’Hanlon, was the best D.I.I truly miss him and Danny John-Jules. Sara Martins, was a lost too. She was very believable too! Why do they keep replacing D.I.’s on this show?

  6. PBS hasn’t even shown season 9 of Death in Paradise. They keep showing series 8 over and over again. I have watched season 9 via the internet but it would be great if PBS would get it’s act together and show seasons 9 and 10.

  7. Death in Paradise is my favorite show and look forward to watching it. I bought the series so I can watch it when it is not available on TV. So looking forward to seeing it when next season is shown.
