Will there be season 4 of Agatha Raisin?

Fans will be pleased to hear the detective comedy series will return for a fourth season.

Ashley Jensen will reprise her role as the titular character for four more feature-length adventures.

Sadly no release date has been given yet, as the series is taking a break due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Sky told British Comedy Guide: “Series four is in development and planned when production resumes.”

The show was dropped by Sky after the first season, and was picked up by American service Acorn TV. However, Sky then picked up UK rights to the show after 2018.

A full cast list has not officially been announced, but one thing is certain – Jensen will definitely be back.

Is there a trailer for Agatha Raisin season 4?

Sadly as no official release date has been announced, there is no trailer for the upcoming season.

Trailers usually drop a month before the season airs, so fans will most likely have to wait until next summer, 2021.

Fans can still watch the trailer for the third season, which shows Agatha taking on a bunch of new cases.

However, her colleagues are not as discreet or professional as she would like, and solving the crimes is not an easy task.

Despite the obstacles, Agatha is determined to get to the bottom of every case, with Roy Silver saying she has “nine lives”.

What will happen in Agatha Raisin season 4?

No official plot has been revealed for season four yet but it will, of course, see Agatha and her team investigating more crimes.

There are a total of 30 Agatha Raisin books, which were published between 1992 and 2019, so there is a whole host of source material to cover.

Some of the later novels include Agatha Raisin: Pushing Up Daisies, Agatha Raisin and the Witches’ Tree and Agatha Raisin and the Dead Ringer.

The four stories will most likely be 90 minutes long, as per the third season.

Fans have been sharing their thoughts on the series, with one fan saying on Twitter: “The Love from Hell was positively brilliant, loved every minute.”

Jensen spoke to What’s On TV about her role as Agatha and she said it was a unique kind of crime drama.

She said: “What sets this show apart from other crime dramas is that it goes from really bold physical comedy to drama to heart-wrenching moments where Agatha’s talking to someone about a loved one who’s been murdered.

“I think there’s a place for everything and there’s been a lot of drama recently that’s influenced by ‘Scandi noir’ – I call this show ‘Cotswold Technicolor’.”

She said she loved playing Agatha as she is a modern woman who is not afraid to say what she really thinks.

Jensen praised the show for providing an opportunity for an older woman to play an intelligent and articulate female lead.

Agatha Raisin is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video, Acorn TV and Sky
