London, Sep 8 (IANS) Bosses have been given the go-ahead to resume filming for “Death in Paradise” after it was suspended over Hurricane Irma.
Bosses decided to halt shooting for the seventh series of the drama in Guadeloupe recently after the island’s authorities issued a red warning alert to all of its residents regarding the catastrophic storm, which is the most powerful hurricane ever recorded over the Atlantic Ocean.
However the camera has started rolling again, reports digitalspy.com.
A spokesperson for the show previously said: “The production team are in constant contact with the authorities in Guadeloupe and as soon as the red signal was alerted, filming was suspended immediately. The safety of the cast and crew remains paramount and when we are given the all-clear, filming will recommence.”
The sun-soaked crime drama has been shot in Guadeloupe for the past six years and it’s not just the British public who thoroughly enjoy it being recomissioned every year.
The seventh series of “Death in Paradise” will see Ardal O’Hanlon take on the lead role as DI Jack Mooney following the departure of Kris Marshall, who played DI Humphrey Goodman.
