‘All Creatures Great and Small’ Renewed for Seasons 5 and 6!

PBS has announced that “All Creatures Great and Small” has been renewed for Seasons 5 and 6. Six episodes will comprise each season, with the addition of Christmas specials.

The iconic television series is based on a collection of short stories written under the pseudonym James Herriot by the English veterinary surgeon James Alfred Wight. James (Nicholas Ralph) is depicted in the series working in Yorkshire during the first half of the 20th century.

As stated in the official description, “The series shall persist in animating the narratives of James Herriot by revisiting Darrowby to befriend the eccentric Skeldale Family and the vibrant assemblage of Yorkshire Dales farmers, animals, and inhabitants during the 1940s.”

In Season 5, Callum Woodhouse will reprise his role as Tristan Farnon, the mischievous sibling of Siegfried, James’ mentor (portrayed by Samuel West). Anna Madeley returns in the role of Mrs. Hall, the matriarch of Skeldale House, while Rachel Shenton portrays Helen Herriot. Regarding Richard Carmody, James Anthony-Rose and Patricia Hodge both reprise their roles as Mrs. Pumphrey. The locations of seasons five and six will be in Yorkshire.

Colin Callender CBE, CEO of Playground and executive producer of the show, commented on its renewal: “In a time when courtesy and propriety are becoming progressively scarce, it is a privilege to once more enter the haven of Skeldale House and James Herriot’s cherished characters, who exemplify the very best in humanity. ‘All Creatures’ features no antagonists; rather, it depicts ordinary people attempting to navigate life with dignity while receiving assistance from a loving community, family, and friends. “This serves as a lesson for contemporary society.”

Channel 5 and Masterpiece collaborate as co-producers alongside global partner All3Media International. It is Playground Entertainment that handles production. Aaron Anderson joins Callender in the capacity of Playground executive producer. In addition to Seb Cardwell and Paul Testar for Channel 5 and Louise Pedersen and David Swetman for All3Media International, Susanne Simpson and Rebecca Eaton serve as executive producers of Masterpiece.
