Starring Ben Miller, Frances de la Tour and Juliet Stevenson, the multiple award-winning, much-loved crime drama “Professor T” is back for a third season, premiering Sunday, June 16, at 7 p.m. The professor is back in jail and must find a way to get his old life and job back.

“Grantchester” is back for its Season 9 premiere Sunday, June 16, at 8 p.m. There’s no shortage of murder, mystery and mayhem in the seemingly quiet 1950s Cambridgeshire village of Grantchester — and police detective Geordie Keating (played by Robson Green) and resident vicar (played by James Norton, Tom Brittney and Rishi Nair, respectively) are always on the case. There’s a real warmth to this period crime drama, set in a picturesque location with central characters who’ve formed their own version of a family.

Watch June 16, 9 p.m.

Premiering Sunday, June 16, at 9 p.m., “D.I. Ray” returns two months after her suspension, thrust back into homicide after the fatal shooting of an innocent nurse and the head of a notorious crime family points to brewing tensions between rival crime families.

Let’s Hear from Some Actors
Masterpiece’s podcast, called “MASTERPIECE Studio” features interviews with actors from countless series; from heartwarming goodbyes from beloved actors to stories of how Masterpiece programs have shaped their careers. These interviews are captivating and give listeners insight to the people behind the characters.
