Whether it's new episodes or reruns of old ones, we love watching Death in Paradise and can't wait for a new series to begin airing next year. The beloved cast are set to reprise their roles once again to form the Saint Marie police department, with the exception of Joséphine Jobert who bowed out of the show last season.

He told The One Show in January: "Well they're pretty much on hold. She couldn't even come out to the island this time. That was an idea she had, 'Why don't we get married out here?' I was like, 'Because I'm busy trying to film a TV show where I'm in every scene.'"
