As winter nears its end, look no further for your cozy murder mystery fix than Acorn TV and the beautiful fictitious town of Brokenwood, New Zealand – population 4,900 and steadily declining, depending on the murder rate that week. The Brokenwood Mysteries Series 7 will make its world debut exclusively in the US and Canada on Monday, March 29, 2021, on Acorn TV, AMC Networks’ acclaimed streaming service specializing in international television from Britain and beyond. New episodes will debut weekly on Mondays.
Akin to fan favorite Midsomer Murders, The Brokenwood Mysteries is a binge-worthy, charming and addictive detective series perfect for the whole family. Featuring big characters and uniquely Kiwi stories, it’s filled with warm camaraderie and deadpan humor against the background of stunning small-town New Zealand.
After transferring from a big city to the quiet, little, murder-ridden town of Brokenwood, Detective Senior Sergeant Mike Shepherd (Neil Rea, Go Girls) and Detective Kristin Simms (Fern Sutherland, The Almighty Johnsons) uncover more murderous rivalries and lethal grudges with each new series. With six feature-length, standalone mysteries, series seven will see the murder of a TV host, a Farmer’s Market owner impaled by a gardening tool, a 1970’s theme party gone wrong, and more.
The Brokenwood Mysteries Series 7 is a TVNZ production with executive producers Kelly Martin, Sally Campbell, and Andrew Szusterman.
