Mark your calendars, folks, for the return of one of the best mystery series around.

The Brokenwood Mysteries: Season 8 premieres in the US and Canada on Thursday, July 1, exclusively on Acorn TV, with subsequent new episodes debuting on Mondays.

In heading back to the (fictional) little New Zealand country town of Brokenwood (population 4,900 and steadily declining, depending on the murder rate that week), we find DSS Mike Shepherd (Neill Rea, Go Girls) and DC Kristin Simms (Fern Sutherland, The Almighty Johnsons), along with DC Daniel Chalmers (Jarod Rawiri, Harry) and medical examiner Dr. Gina Kadinsky (Cristina Ionda, Filthy Rich), uncovering more macabre goings-on in this seemingly quiet but definitely not uneventful place.

As Brokenwood’s police team investigates dangerous rivalries and lethal grudges that erupt into gruesome crimes, buried secrets and treacherous lies that lie beneath the town’s peaceful veneer are exposed.

With six feature-length, standalone mysteries, Season 8 will see a murder at a music festival, where the victim was seemingly literally killed by sound; the violent death of a cowgirl, possibly motivated by a 160-year-old family feud; and an athlete found dead in a fountain.

(I can’t wait!)
