PBS Masterpiece announced today that Miss Scarlet and The Duke has been renewed for a second season. The British-Irish mystery drama premiered for US audiences earlier this year as part of Masterpiece's 50th anniversary lineup.

The series' January debut was an instant hit with audiences. Nearly eight million viewers watched the first season on TV, and it was streamed 3.6 million times online. Critics enjoyed the show as well, praising the performance of lead Kate Phillips and its overall watchability.

Miss Scarlet and The Duke follows Eliza Scarlet, Victorian London's first-ever female detective, who won't let anyone stop her from keeping her late father's agency running. Thankfully she receives help from her childhood friend and professional colleague, Scotland Yard Detective Inspector William Wellington, aka The Duke.

Look for Season 2 sometime in 2022.
