Midsomer Murders was back on ITV on Sunday night and fans were treated to a murder mystery experience that went terribly wrong. Set at Hulton Manor, a killer struck for real and it was down to DCI John Barnaby (played by Neil Dudgeon) to find out what happened. Fans are keen to know whether the series will return next weekend. 

When is Midsomer Murders coming back?

DCI Barnaby and his partner DS Jamie Winter (Nick Hendrix) were back for another murder mystery at the weekend and fans were treated to two hours of the ITV drama. 

The detective series took a different turn as it explored new themes, in a brand new location away from the iconic cottages of Midsomer. 

Fans had mixed reviews about the episode, with many saying it was too much like Jonathan Creek. 

This was partly due to the fact it included a lineup of Jonathan Creek actors, including Stuart Milligan and Caroline Quentin. 

Most viewers enjoyed the special instalment and they were keen to know whether the series would return in a more regular slot. 

Sadly the series will not be back next weekend as this was a one-off episode. 

When fans found out the drama would not be making a comeback any time soon, they expressed their disappointment. 

Taking to Twitter, Vivienne Hall said: “Enjoyed Midsomer Murders tonight but disappointed that it isn’t on next week. #midsomermurders.”

Debbie Blackman added: “@ITV is so annoying the way they show #midsomermurders.

“It took two and a half years to get through series 21 and every country had seen it before the UK and now they’re doing it to this series too.”

Jennifer C Wilson said: “Aww, sobbing at the end of #MidsomerMurders – really enjoyed tonight’s! Hopefully some more new ones to come soon.”

Mandyfo added: “We need more please”, with other fans suggesting it would have made the perfect Christmas special. 

Jess questioned: “Why is this series of #MidsomerMurders so spread out??”

Season 22 first started airing in April 2021 and it is made up of six episodes in total. 

Filming started in October 2020, after a break in production due to Covid concerns, with all of the regular cast returning.

Three episodes have aired so far, which means UK fans are only half-way through the series. 

The remaining three episodes have all been given unique titles, and they are as follows: 

Episode four –  The Scarecrow Murders

Episode five –  For Death Prepare

Episode six –  The Witches of Angel’s Rise

An episode synopsis has already been provided for episodes four and five, so hopefully they will get release dates soon. 

The episode four synopsis reads: “The annual scarecrow festival in Midsomer takes a terrible turn when dead bodies are found next to the festival’s straw creations.

“Barnaby’s investigation shows a deep competitive rivalry that makes people do just about anything to win.”

Whereas episode five says: “The Midsomer Mummers, a company for amateur opera, is in the middle of rehearsals for a charity concert when a dead body is found at the theatre.

“The aim of the inquiry is to find out which person wants to be at the centre of attention.”

Next week’s 9pm slot on Sunday will be filled by new series Angela Black. 

Midsomer Murders is available to watch on the ITV Hub.
