Season 5 of UK mystery Grantchester will screen on ABC later this month, in a prime Sunday slot.

This season, starring Tom Brittney and Robson Green aired in the UK in January.

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…

8:35pm Sunday September 20 on ABC.
