Shetland Season 7: Shetland is a Scottish television drama series that debuted on television on March 10, 2013. The series has now aired six seasons throughout its eight-year existence.
Shetland is a criminal drama series on BBC One based on Ann Cleeves’ popular novel series. It tells the story of Jimmy Perez, a criminal detective while he and his colleagues investigate several crimes in the Scottish Shetland Islands. A sequence of adventures, twists, turns, and discoveries ensue throughout the season.
With the cliffhanger left by Shetland, fans have been anticipating and asking for Season 7. Fortunately, BBC listened!
Here’s what we know so far about Shetland Season 7.
Shetland Season 7 Release Date
If you have seen the show, you probably know that it is a fantastic combination of crime, thriller, and mystery on a tiny island which is why the fans cannot get enough of it.
Season 7 has already begun its filming, meaning the show is already confirmed to have its seventh installment. It was announced through a tweet by Douglas Henshall.
We are wrapped on Shetland. Production now moves to Glasgow for the rest of season 7. As ever thank you to the people here for your help, support, and patience we couldn’t do it without you. #shetland

However, we do not have an exact official release date as of the moment.
Although, based on the series’s timeline throughout its six seasons, if the filming goes well and does not experience delays, we can assume that Shetland Season 7 might be released by the fall of 2022.
Shetland Season 2 Expected Plot
Just like any other viewer and fan, you might be curious about the storyline of Shetland Season 2.
When Shetland was first aired, it was a thriller drama with a band of detectives. As it moves forward, the plot has gotten broader and more compelling.
During Season 6, Jimmy is already torn apart by the hardships he was encountering, including his father’s dementia and his quest to solve a murder. He also dealt with his mother’s death and how Galbraith was murdered outside his house. He was accused at the finale of killing Donna Killick as well.
What’s next for Jimmy? We might be able to get the answer to this by the time Shetland Season 7 air.
Shetland Season 2 Expected Cast
We do not have the exact list of cats for Shetland Season 2 yet. But still, we can assume that the original cast and members from Season 1 down to Season 6 will be back to play their original roles.
