'Death in Paradise' Season 4 Premieres on KCET

Support Provided By

Your day just got brighter, "Death in Paradise" fans. Season four of the hit BBC detective drama makes its KCET debut tonight at 8:47 p.m., following "Doc Martin," and re-airs at midnight.

Unlike past seasons, the show will also now be available to stream online (for L.A. Designated Market Area residents) concurrent to its on-air broadcast.

The warm, lighthearted series about an inspector who's assigned to investigate murders on the paradise island of Saint-Marie in the Caribbean now stars Kris Marshall, who plays detective DI Humphrey Goodman. DI Richard Poole (played by Ben Miller) was murdered in last season's premiere.

The new season opens with -- you guessed it -- a murder. When the owner of a rum distillery is killed during a seance, all clues point to the prime suspect being a ghost.

"Downton Abbey's" Amy Nuttall (she played housemaid Ethel Parks), "Call the Midwife's" Leo Staar (he played Jenny Lee's boyfriend Alec), "Outnumbered's" Tyger Drew Honey, "The Fast Show's" Simon Day, and "Broadchurch's" Will Mellor guest star this season.

Season four synopses:
