The Madame Blanc Mysteries returning to Channel 5 for a Christmas special and second series

With Sally Lindsay back as respected antiques dealer, Jean White!

The Madame Blanc Mysteries sees renowned and respected antiques dealer, Jean White, return fresh from surviving an attempt on her life by the duplicitous Barbara. Across the series, Jean’s expertise in the world of antiquities proves once again the key to solving a series of murders and mysteries against the backdrop of the beautiful French village of Sainte Victoire.

The second series will kick off with a Christmas Special later this year and sees creator of the series, Sally Lindsay, return to reprise her role of Jean White. Sally has also joined forces again with Sue Vincent to co-write the second series with Sue also returning on screen as Gloria Beaushaw.

In the festive special we see Jean coming to the aid of Chief of Police Caron, played by Alex Gaumond, who finds himself on the other side of the interview table accused of a crime he didn’t commit.

Across the rest of the series, we’ll also find Jean and Dom; played by Steve Edge, growing ever closer. But will friendship finally grow into something more?

Love rolls into town for Gloria in the form of a new local cabbie and Barbara, still at large, has deadly plans to finally finish what she began in the first series.

Speaking about the new series, Sally Lindsay said "The team and I were overwhelmed with the amazing response to The Madame Blanc Mysteries last year and Sue and I were thrilled to get the go ahead to create 7 more mysteries in the beautiful sunshine of Sainte Victoire."

"We were even more delighted to create a Christmas special as Christmas television has always been a highlight of the television year for me and we can’t wait to inject some much-needed sunshine right in the middle of winter."

The second series will be directed by Dermot Boyd, with Mike Benson as Executive Producer for Clapperboard alongside Sally Lindsay and Caroline Roberts-Cherry for Saffron Cherry.

The Madame Blanc Mysteries will return for a Christmas special later this year ahead of a second series in 2023 on Channel 5
