We're delighted to hear that Grantchester is coming back for a new series! ITV have confirmed that they've recommissioned the drama for a fourth series, although there is a catch... sadly it will be Jame Norton's last on the show.
His character, jazz-loving clergyman Sidney Chambers, is set to bow out during series four, with a new vicar set to replace him. Casting of the new vicar will be announced soon, so place your bets now!
Rebecca Eaton, Masterpiece executive producer, said: "It’s a bittersweet time for 'Grantchester' fans, who will be cheering the return of the series but crushed to say goodbye to James.
"We want to assure them that the series they love will continue with brilliant new episodes and a captivating new vicar."
Along with Robson Green, who plays Detective Geordie Keating, returning members of Grantchester’s ensemble cast include Al Weaver, Tessa Peake-Jones and Kacey Ainsworth.
Production on the fourth season will begin in June in London, Cambridge, and Grantchester.
