With the last episode airing in 2015, Andy and Lances' detecting ambitions are unabated as Detectorists makes a return to BBC Four.
Written, directed and starring Mackenzie Crook (Andy), Detectorists will return this year with six new episodes.
Also starring Toby Jones (Lance) and Rachael Stirling as Becky, Andy’s wife, the new series continues on from the Christmas Special that saw Lance battling the ‘curse of the gold’ after finding an Anglo-Saxon treasure.
Mackenzie Crook said: “After a year away I decided I missed my friends in Danebury so much that I had to go back to the world of Detectorists one more time to see what Andy and Lance could dig up. The prospect of filming another summer in the beautiful English countryside is a good one.”
Cassian Harrison, Controller for BBC Four, said: "The Detectorists has been one of my personal TV highlights of the last few years, and I’m simply delighted to welcome Mackenzie, Toby, Rachel, and all the detecting team back to the BBC Four abode once again - but could they just hang on while I pop out for a quick carry-out of best Somerset cider?"
Detectorists will air later this year on BBC Four.
