Death in Paradise has gotten a big renewal. BBC has renewed the British–French crime comedy-drama series for two more seasons and two feature-length Christmas specials. This will keep the series on the air through its 14th season. The 12th season recently concluded in the UK and is currently being released on the BritBox streaming service in the US.
Starring Don Warrington, Élizabeth Bourgine, Ralf Little, Tahj Miles Shantol, and Jackson Ginny Holder, the Death in Paradise series follows the police on the island of Saint Marie.
BBC revealed more about the big renewal of the series in a press release.
Global hit Death in Paradise has been recommissioned for two more series and two feature-length Christmas special episodes for BBC One and iPlayer.
This series saw the nation’s favourite detective, DI Neville Parker (Ralf Little), not only deceived by his girlfriend, but also framed for murder! The Honoré police team once again cracked every case; from the death of a doomsday prepper in a locked room, to a murder on a boat in the middle of the sea and a dance-floor death, keeping the residents of Saint Marie safe for another year.
Lindsay Salt, Director of BBC Drama says: “With its sparkling blend of mystery, humour and heart, Death In Paradise continues to delight the millions of us who make the return trip to Saint Marie with every sun-drenched episode. It is a programme that goes from strength to strength, and I could not be happier that it will return for another two series and specials on BBC One and iPlayer.”
Filmed on the French Caribbean Island of Guadeloupe, Death in Paradise follows Saint Marie’s crime fighting team as they solve the most complex and mysterious murder cases, joined by an impressive array of guest stars each week. In 2024, the series will continue to offer much-needed escapism, compelling whodunnits and perplexing puzzles, keeping viewers on their toes for years to come.
Tim Key, Executive Producer, Red Planet Pictures says: “The response to series 12 has been incredible, so we’re delighted that we’ll be heading back to Guadeloupe for at least two more series! We’ve got an amazing and joyful Christmas special in store, and then series 13 begins with our 100th episode, so we’ve got plenty of surprises ready to celebrate that milestone. We’ve got huge plans for the future and can’t wait to get going again”.

What do you think? Are you a fan of the Death in Paradise TV series? Do you watch episodes on BBC One, BritBox, or some other platform?
I have loved it since it started and have watched every episode. So glad it us continuing. It would be sad if it was stopped.
Death in Paradise – I have watched every episode – the present cast is a really good mix of personality – I love the way the island has evolved.
I cannot wait until 2024!!!!
We watch on BritBox in the U.S. and wouldn’t miss an episode! Just a really great, entertaining show! My only complaint is that the seasons don’t have enough episodes! We’d love to watch at least one new Death in Paradise every evening of the year!
Have loved Death In Paradise since it’s inception on PBS. Now this program and other British shows are unavailable on PBS. Not a technical genius so would really support BritCom and Acorn should I figure out how to make it happen. The British humor is so enjoyable and the mystery and detectives are so well written and the acting is superb.
I watch on BritBox and I’m pleased to know DiP is renewed for two seasons.
I have been a fan for years. Watched it on PBS. Can’t afford all the streaming it is on now. It will be missed.
I live in the US. I love Death in Paradise. Keep it going!! And I watch it on Prime Video. I have Britbox and Acorn tv thru Prime tv.
I love Death in Paradise!!!! I wish there were 20+ episodes each season. I have watched from episode 1 thru 12…I have started watching Beyond Paradise also. I have Brit Box and also Prime!!!! Thank you so much!!!
Love this show , I’m always watching reruns. Got my husband to watch it with me too.
It is so nice to see such a good show get renewed for more seasons. My family sits around every week and watches this trying to guess who the murderer was or how he was going to suddenly come up with the solution. Hope it makes it to like Season 20 and more
