Season 2 of “Grantchester” premieres February 28 through April 4, 2018!
It’s 1953, and Sidney Chambers (James Norton) is vicar of Grantchester, a village just outside Cambridge. Sidney’s is a quiet life. Or at least, it has been – right up until the moment that murder comes his way…
Pushed into the dangerous world of lies, betrayal and murder, Sidney quickly finds that his insight into the human condition, and the natural trust that he engenders in people, means that he excels in his new position as ‘detective’.
Joining Sidney as he journeys into this dark world is the affable but world-weary Detective Inspector Geordie Keating (Robson Green), the naive, but well-meaning curate Leonard Finch (Al Weaver), and his austere and constantly disapproving housekeeper Mrs Maguire (Tessa Peake-Jones).
But crime isn’t the only matter that occupies Sidney. Smitten with the witty, beautiful, Amanda (Morven Christie), Sidney’s hopes of ever winning her heart have been dashed ever since he became a clergyman.
Can you still see the best in people when the world of murder asks you to see the worst?
Guest stars include: Jean Marsh, Mark Bonnar (of “Home Fires”), Peter Egan and Pip Torrens (of “Poldark.”)

– SEASON 2: EPISODE GUIDE –
1954. Having laid his wartime past to rest, Sidney Chambers is in a good place. Booze and self-doubt have taken a back seat to his duties and congregation. He’s growing up, and trying to lead the ‘good’ life. And with Amanda now married, he’s going to have to look elsewhere to find himself a wife. But neither of these things are going to be easy.
When Sidney finds himself wrongly accused of a crime, his unmasking of the real culprit is going to cause shockwaves that run through the entire series. Will Sidney be able to stay the course and live with a difficult decision, even when all those around him are turning against him?
Geordie, meanwhile, is unravelling. Newly returned to work after being shot, he feels old and scared. As Geordie’s behaviour becomes more erratic, the cracks in his friendship with Sidney will begin to show. A vicar keeps people’s confidences. A copper is hell bent on exposing them. Will allegiance to the institutions they work for ultimately be Sidney and Geordie’s undoing?
Ultimately, it’s the friendship between a vicar and a policeman that’s at the heart of our series. We’ve already seen Sidney and Geordie’s unlikely friendship blossom, and we know they will do anything for one another – but now we are going to test their loyalties to the limits. We will take them to the point of no return – a fight where Geordie says things he can’t unsay and Sidney beats seven bells out of him. Their friendship is in tatters. But when the chips are down and one of them is in danger, will their brotherly love prevail?
And much as he says he has, has Sidney really left his feelings about Amanda behind? Could there still be hope for them after all…?
