⊙ Shetland Season 8 Preview
The Shetland season 8 cast has been confirmed as Ashley Jensen steps up to take on the role filled for so long by the brilliant Douglas Henshall as DI Perez. From the moment it was confirmed that Douglas Henshall’s Shetland journey was coming to an end long-time fans were likely left anticipating who could step into his iconic shoes in Shetland season 8. Of course, the Shetland season 7 ending dropped a few breadcrumbs that could’ve led many people to believe that Alison ‘Tosh’ McIntosh could be the person who replaces DI Jimmy Perez in Shetland. This promotion would certainly have been a welcome step-up for the fan-favorite character after what happened to Tosh in Shetland season 7 and her dedication. However, it’s now been confirmed that Ashley Jensen is replacing Douglas from Shetland season 8. Not only that, but we now know which regular stars will be back. Although not much has been revealed about season 8 as of yet, except that it’s happening.
