Two series that have gained followings on PBS’s “Masterpiece” are booked to return with new seasons this month. PBS announced that both “Grantchester” and “Mr. Selfridge” will be back Sunday, March 27.
“Grantchester” returns on “Masterpiece Mystery!” with its season two premiere scheduled for 9 p.m. ET.
“James Norton (‘War and Peace’) dons his priestly collar and Robson Green (‘Reckless’) his rumpled raincoat for a new season as the improbable crime-fighting team, Reverend Sidney Chambers and Inspector Geordie Keating, bringing justice and spiritual nourishment to early 1950s England,” PBS notes in its announcement. “‘Grantchester,’ Season 2, airs in six compelling episodes on ‘Masterpiece Mystery!'”
The final season of “Mr. Selfridge” rolls out the same night, March 27, at 10 p.m. ET.
“The clock nears closing time as mercantile genius Harry Selfridge faces creditors, swindlers, mob bosses, irate relatives, and spurned mistresses in the farewell season of ‘Mr. Selfridge,'” PBS notes. “Starring three-time Emmy winner Jeremy Piven (‘Entourage’) as the man who revolutionized the world’s retail experience, Mr. Selfridge, The Final Season airs on ‘Masterpiece’ in nine nail-biting final episodes.”
