James Norton fan? Your prayers have been answered.


If you're a James Norton fan praying for the return of Grantchester, your pryers have been answered. The UK's ITV announced they're gearing up to begin production on Season 2. According to Deadline, the period drama starring James Norton as Sidney Chambers, "the charismatic, charming, crime-fighting clergyman, and Robson Green as his partner in crime, Police Inspector Geordie Keating" will air in 2016. 


Can't wait that long for James Norton? You can catch him in Death Comes to Pemberly and the fantastic Happy Valley available on Netflix. Coming sometime this year Norton stars as Sir Clifford Chatterley in Lady Chatterley's Lover with Holiday Grainger and Richard Madden. And sometime in 2016, he'll appear as the young prince opposite Lily James in War & Peace coming to television as a six part limited series. 


Norton and Green make a great team as Sidney and Geordie; the the earnest young sexy-as-hell vicar and the older, wise-cracking, jaded policeman but what what we really love about Grantchester is the chemistry between Sidney and Amanda played by Morven Christie. The show is as much about solving the myriad of crimes that just so happen to fall into Grantchester's orbit, and watching how Amanda and Sidney navigate their lives when we all know their mad for each other. Except she had to go and spoil it all by marrying someone else.


In the new season, which begins a year after the last concluded, Sidney and Geordie have to face up to the consequences of becoming such an accomplished crime-fighting duo. Six new episodes will be filmed in London, Cambridge, and Grantchester. The series, initially based on the books by James Runcie, is scripted by Daisy Coulam (East Enders) along with John Jackson (Being Human) and Joshua St Johnston (The Enfield Haunting).
