Death in Paradise season 10 has begun filming ahead of its return to the BBC with a number of huge announcements. One of these was how Josephine Jobert would be coming back to the series as DS Florence Cassell. However, the show has also teased other familiar faces may be returning as well – here’s what you need to know.
Which other characters are returning to Death in Paradise?
Fans of Death in Paradise were left ecstatic by the news the much-loved character Florence Cassell (played by Josephine Jobert) would be returning to the show.
This was announced by the BBC as filming began on the show at the end of July.
The statement announced: “As well as the usual baffling murders, intriguing puzzles and famous guest stars, viewers can expect some huge surprises as the show celebrates a decade as one of the most loved British dramas – and these surprises begin with the return of D.S Florence Cassell, played by audience favourite Josephine Jobert.
“Florence thinks she’s ready to get back to work after her fiancé’s death two years ago – but she hasn’t banked on her new boss, Neville.
“As she tries to understand his peculiarities, sparks are bound to fly…”
However, it also seems Jobert will not be the only returning cast member when the series begins again.
This was teased by the show’s executive producer during the filming announcement.
Tim Key said: “We are delighted to be able to start filming and can’t wait to celebrate our tenth series with our audience.
“It’s a joy to be working with Josephine Jobert again and we think the viewers will love watching her trying to get to grips with Neville.
“And we are very happy to welcome Tahj Miles to the show. Marlon is going to make real waves once he arrives in Saint Marie.
“We’ve got some real treats for our long-term viewers as the series progresses – including some major surprises and the possibility of another returning face or two.”
The reveal there could be “another returning face or two” is certainly exciting for fans of the series.

This is all which has been teased so far about the upcoming outing but there are plenty of characters who could return to the show.
One major possibility is Florence’s partner and former detective Humphrey Goodman (Kris Marshall).
Not only would he be pleased to see Cassell again but the actor who plays him has previously revealed he would love to come back in a cameo role.
Speaking to the press at the Sanditon press conference last year, he confirmed he would love to reprise his role.
He said: “Would I go back, and do a cameo in Death in Paradise? Unequivocally yes.”
As well as this, another potential familiar face is Dwayne Myers (Danny John-Jules) who viewers last saw heading off to travel the world.
However, the return of Cassell might also bring him back to the island as well.
John-Jules has previously opened up about wanting to see the character return in a spin-off, so it seems he would be open to it.
Speaking to the TV Times at the beginning of 2020, he said: “I’d actually like to do a Death in Paradise spin-off with Dwayne, even if it were just a one-off special.
“I have an idea, but I just need to meet up with the producer, Tony Jordan, to touch base and run it past him.”
At the moment, it seems like viewers will just have to wait and see who comes back to the show for season 10.
However, now filming has officially begun, fans can hopefully expect some more news from the hit show.
Death in Paradise season 10 is expected to be released in 2021.
