Filming for new Shetland series on hold

5 comments, , by , in News, ST Online

Filming for the new series of Shetland, which was due to start at the end of March, has been put on hold.

A decision had already been made to postpone for two weeks, but filming has since been halted due to the growing coronavirus pandemic.

Two more series of the murder-mystery drama, based on the Ann Cleeves’ novels, were announced in December.

Five series have already been broadcast by the BBC, with the show having won fans around the world.

    Enjoyment of the books has been enhanced by the excellent TV series. I hope to visit later in the year.

    Here in Italy we love this series that allows us to admire such different but very very fascinating places and cultures. We await the new episodes. Bye from Anzio, Rome.

    Sad but understandable.

    Really miss the show can we put pressure on bbc to put back on iPlayer as would love to watch them all again

    Worth waiting for. I love the characters and the landscape. Farmhouses and stone fences. This series is probably the reason why I decided to visit Shetland this summer. If situation allows. A two-three weeks hiking from south to north. See you. Best wishes from Denmark.

    Way over here in Canada on East Vancouver Island , Perez and the rest of the police force have a huge following . Especially like Billy . He holds the station together . Super show .
