Shetland Season 6: Production Status!
The cast and the crew of the series were all set to begin the production of the sixth season in March 2020. However, the sudden outbreak of Coronavirus pandemics didn’t allow them to start it. The government imposed a production shutdown and total lockdown for the citizens. And that delayed the filming of the upcoming installment. Recently, BBC One revealed that they wouldn’t be starting filming Shetland Season 6 before 2021. However, they will continue reviewing the production status of all of their shows. Now, the fans have to wait a little more to watch their favorite show.
Future Of The Series!

The fans are more than happy after hearing this news because they will get to see more of their favorite detectives. However, it might be possible that the creators will end the show with its seventh season. In that case, they will announce it after the release of the sixth season.
Shetland Season 6: Plot Details!
The fifth season of the series saw Perez investigating the murder of young Nigerian man Daniel and the kidnapping of his sister Zezi after a severed hand hit upon Shetland beach. In Glasgow, Perez observed Aaron McGuire, who he thought was a vital figure in the group. During this time, unusual Callum committed suicide under the watch of DC Sandy Wilson. Perez soon understood that Alice, the new woman in town that he had fallen in love with, was after the trafficking ring on the island after McGuire was notified of the police’s effort to pull him out of the shadows.
