Meanwhile, it’s been revealed by the makers that Shantol Jackson is returning on the show as Naomi Thomas, a young sergeant.
Shantol said: “I’m so grateful for this amazing opportunity to join the cast of this fun-filled, entertaining series. I used to watch Death in Paradise with my dad in Jamaica years ago when it just started and to now be in the show, knowing that he’ll be watching me, it’s truly a surreal moment. Looking forward to adding to the magic!”
Fans of the show were curious to know whether Tobi Bakare and Ben Miller will be returning for the next series. But unfortunately, Tobi who played as JP for six years won’t be returning as he left the show and Ben Miller who played as Dl Richard Poole won’t be returning either as he is busy with another show.
It’s also not confirmed whether Danny John-Jules who played Dwayne, will be coming back or not but it has been revealed that he will return for the Christmas special of Death in Paradise.
Danny said, “It’s always a pleasure going back to the Caribbean. And after four years away, fitting back into the fold should be seamless as I know all the new leading cast members already. I look forward to bringing Dwayne and this tenth-anniversary special script to life.”
Death in Paradise Season 11 plot
From what we witnessed in the final moments of the tenth season, Florence after she opened the door to Neville, what did he say to Florence? Hopefully, it will be cleared up in the eleventh season. Also, in season 10, Neville learned that he has true feelings for Florence. Will he confess? Will Florence be able to return his feelings? Will they finally become a couple? there’s just so many things to find out.
Star Ralf Little in a chat with Hello, has teased us what might actually happen in the eleventh season, he said: “I think it could go either way as Neville’s come a long way, he’s a much stronger person than he was when he arrived on the island. He might have the bottle to go through with it. But then again, she’s an intimidatingly charming and beautiful woman who he worked really closely with and so I’m afraid, you’re just gonna have to wait and see. And if it’s any consolation, I’m going to have to wait and see as well!”
Meanwhile, the BBC teased: “Could the return of familiar faces to the island cause trouble in paradise?” Does that suggest the return of some old characters?
Hmm… There are so many things going on here and we can’t wait to find out. The most important one is, will Neville and Florence become a couple? I really hope they do, that’s what we all want.
