THE GUEST cast for the next series of BBC crime drama Shetland has been announced.

Among the guests who will be joining the regular cast for series nine are Ian Hart (Mr Bates VS The Post Office, Harry Potter) and Vincent Regan (Traces, Luther: The Fallen Sun, Aquaman).

Other guests will include Stuart Campbell (SAS Rogue Heroes, Baptiste), Robert Jack (Annika, Damaged), Nalini Chetty (Crime, Karen Pirie), Jimmy Yuill (Guilt, The Kindred) and Lesley Hart (Granite Harbour, River City).

Series nine will film in locations around Scotland and in Shetland over the coming months, with the series debuting on BBC One and BBC iPlayer later this year.

Ian Hart said: “I’m looking forward to embarking on a Shetland adventure – it’s a place I’ve always wanted to visit and to do so with this incredible drama is wonderful.”

Regan added: “I’m thrilled be joining the cast of Shetland which is such a beloved BBC drama. My character and his family are at the heart of this dark and twisting storyline and I’m looking forward to seeing how it all unfolds.

“The opportunity to visit the Shetland Isles was also a real pull to the part as well as working with the likes of Ashley Jensen and Alison O’Donnell.”

Meanwhile the BBC said series ten of the show will film in 2025.
