Executive producer, Tim Key, said: “We always knew there were more Humphrey Goodman tales to be told and with the brilliant Tony Jordan leading the writing team.
“Bringing all the Death in Paradise spirit, humour and joy to this brand new, original series, we can’t wait to get started.
“While Humphrey is used to contending with fiendishly clever puzzles, the biggest challenge of all is navigating his private life and finding out what happens beyond the ‘happy ever after’.
“We’re delighted to be working with Kris and Sally again and creating a little bit of Paradise in the UK.”
More details about the first season will be released in due course.
Death in Paradise seasons 1-11 are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
