FILMING for the next two series of BBC crime drama Shetland is scheduled to begin in February.
Actor Douglas Henshall, who plays the lead role of Jimmy Perez, gave the update on Twitter at the weekend.
He said: “For everyone asking about the next series of Shetland. The plan is that we start filming next February and shoot two series back to back all being well. So fingers crossed.
“The scripts are good, I know that much.”
Filming of the sixth series was scheduled to start earlier this year but it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The crime drama has been commissioned for a sixth and seventh series.
