Midsomer Murders is a veteran when it comes to TV shows. The show came out back in 1997 and has had a continuous and sustained run over the past years. Fans of the show keep returning for more mystery and more entertainment every year. And I have to say, there is hardly anything that is as consistent as Midsomer Murders out there. It is just one of those shows which always has something up its sleeve. And now, with the release of Midsomer Murders Season 22, there is a lot that needs to be talked about, the least of which is not the renewal news.
Midsomer Murders Season 22 started airing last air but had to be halted due to the coronavirus pandemic that took over the entire world. And since then, it has had a somewhat stunted production and episodes have been very irregular, to say the least. But does this display a red herring for Midsomer Murders Season 23? Or is the show being renewed for yet another mysterious season? Read on to find out all that you need to know about Midsomer Murders Season 22.
Midsomer Murders Season 22: So Far
Midsomer Murders is the typical whodunit series, based on the novel called Chief Inspector Barnaby by Caroline Graham. It is a series that manages that incorporates the mystery elements of the movie into a drama that runs across an hour and a half, with seasons that typically range around six episodes. At the present moment, Midsomer Murders is currently streaming its 22nd season and has released 128 episodes, since its conception back in the 20th century. Needless to say, Midsomer Murders is a show that values quality over quantity.
Midsomer Murders Season 22 is a British production and is produced by Betty Willingale. Over the course of its run, it has met with consistent audience response and has been subject to high critical acclaim. It has also been a popular show in British culture for the longest time. Particular strong points for the show include its interesting and mysterious characters, coupled with the plot twists and surprise reveals that feed into the whodunit nature of the show.
Midsomer Murders Season 22: Renewal
Midsomer Murders Season 22 is currently airing on ITV and has been subject to a lot of problems owing to the COVID pandemic, due to which production had to be halted. While the first two episodes came out quite a while ago, the next four have been ostensibly delayed and have only just begun airing. This begs the question of the future of the show. Will the show survive such an impact? Or is it going to be canceled? That is the question that needs to be asked right now.
Given the delayed release and everything in between, it would not be reasonable to expect an early release from the show this year. So as of now, there is no official confirmation whether Midsomer Murders Season 22 is going to be renewed for yet another season, but if the past seasons are anything to go by, and the quality of production is maintained, I see no reason not to renew the show.
In any case, if the show does get renewed, it is going to be some while before it, and I would not expect it to be officially renewed before 2022. But even if it does, I bet that the show is going to come out sometime in late 2022. So late 2022 to early 2023 is a safe bet for Midsomer Murders Season 23.

While Midsomer Murders Season 22 is currently underway and a successor seems to be a possibility in the far future, it is not wise to comment on the immediate future of the show. However, it is good to see Season 22 finally airing on the television, and I’m going to indulge myself in it for a while. I would recommend you do the same.
