The second season of the Agatha Raisin television series has officially gone into production, with six new episodes to be aired on Acorn TV in autumn 2018.
Emmy-nominated actress Ashley Jensen returns to star in the leading role. Based on M. C. Beaton’s bestselling novels, the series follows Agatha Raisin, London PR whiz turned amateur sleuth, who becomes entangled in mischief, mayhem, and murder when she opts for early retirement in a small village in the Cotswolds. The second season will adapt three of M. C. Beaton’s novels: The Wizard of Evesham, The Curious Curate, and The Fairies of Fryfam and be available internationally.
The first season aired in 2016 to glowing critical acclaim from the New York Times, the Guardian, and the Sunday Mirror. Acorn TV has been named “Netflix for the Anglophile” by NPR. Agatha Raisin remains one of the most popular shows on their service.
