The show’s executive producer Neil Irvine was grateful for the warm reception and huge success of the 10th anniversary season.

He added he was “delighted” to begin filming series 11 of the hit crime drama.

He teased viewers can expect 10 episodes of “twists, turns and unpredictable whodunnits to keep them guessing”.

The new series is not expected to air until early 2024, so viewers will have quite a wait.

According to the BBC, the new run will begin in 1955 with Father Brown and Brenda (Ruby-May Martinwood) talking about chief inspector Sullivan (Tom Chambers).
