When Do We Get Shetland Season 6? Release Date!

The show enters into production in 2021 that simply means we will hopefully get the show at the end of 2021 or maybe at the start of 2022 but not before that.

The delay occurs because of the pandemic which makes the followers of the show sad, seeing the pitful reviews from the lovers of the show, one of the show stars Douglas Henshall show his concern by sharing a post.

Henshall confirmed the revival of the show by his Twitter post in which he twitted-

“We start principal photography on the 22nd of March and head to Shetland for almost all of April. I can’t wait to get going,” he wrote, before adding “Our COVID protocols are 36 pages long.”

“Every one of us will be tested before we start and then tested twice a week when we are in Glasgow and three times a week on Shetland. We’ll be taking our own mobile testing unit to the isles so that we don’t distract the NHS there.”

Keeping our fingers cross may this pandemic ends soon and we will get the show back, till then you can switch to some new series, what about some romantic series? Memories of Alhambra Season 2 would be a good start for you!
