A teaser for the latest series of Grace has been released ahead of the show’s return.

The hit Brighton-based drama will be back on our screens on Sunday, March 19.

Ahead of the latest Roy Grace story, ITV has released a trailer to promote the new adventures.

In the trailer, DS Roy Grace, played by John Simm, investigates several new crimes across the city.

Grace and partner Glenn Branson, played by Richie Campbell, are seen wearing forensic suits as well as tackling criminals in Brighton.

The new series of Grace will see three feature-length episodes based on Peter James’s best-selling detective novels following DS Grace.

The first episode of the show will be based on James’s Dead Like You, with the other episodes based on Dead Man’s Grip and Not Yet Dead.

A synopsis for the first episode reads: “A chilling event at the Royal Edward hotel on the night of Assistant Chief Constable Alison Vosper’s leaving do forces Grace and Branson into a difficult position when they must investigate all hotel guests, including high ranking East Sussex police attendees.

The Argus:

“Something about the incident is causing a deep unease in Grace - he knows he’s seen this before. Has a sinister offender from Grace’s past dubbed the Brighton Prowler resurfaced or is this a copycat?

“As the attacks continue, Grace is convinced it’s the same man - and delving into the past may be the key to saving the next victim.”
