Shetland Season 8: The death knell for Shetland could have been sounded with DI Jimmy Perez’s departure at the end of season seven. However, the BBC has faith in the show enough to retain it for an eighth season despite losing their lead actor of nine years.
Because of the BBC’s thoughtfulness, we didn’t have to worry about the show’s future after Douglas Henshall left because they informed us of the renewal before season seven began airing.

When the eighth season renewal of Shetland was announced, the BBC also revealed that production on the new episodes would begin in the spring of 2023, suggesting that the show would return to screens later that year. The eighth season of Shetland is set to begin filming in the spring of 2023, so fans can expect new episodes to premiere in the summer or early fall of that year.

Actor Steven Robertson was born in Scotland on January 1, 1977, and he plays the role of Detective Sandy Wilson in the BBC One adaptation of Ann Cleeves’ Shetland.

He also featured in the list in 2018, when he was ranked fourth, with a reported income of $99 million.
Shetland Season 8 Plot
Shetland has been dropping hints about Jimmy leaving for quite some time, but it wasn’t until the final episode of season seven that we learned the full details of his exit. Jimmy ultimately did the right thing by preventing an execution and extradition of a man, but this decision did not help his professional standing. “If the last thing I do is support an innocent man, I’m good with that,” Jimmy told Rhona in the season seven finale.
This concludes Jimmy’s career as a private investigator. Even though we probably won’t find out what happens to him and Meg, we can probably expect a new lead to be presented at the beginning of each episode of Shetland in the future.
