Beyond Paradise‘s stars have promised some “cracking guest stars” in season 2 of the show.
The successful spin-off of Death in Paradise made its debut earlier this year, and follows Kris Marshall’s DI Humphrey Goodman as he relocates to Devon with his fiancée.
Speaking on the NTAs red carpet last night (September 5), stars Dylan Llewellyn (PC Kelby Hartford) and Zahra Ahmadi (DS Esther Williams) were asked about potential guest stars for season 2.

While he cast doubt on any Death in Paradise crossovers, Llewellyn told Digital Spy and other media: “There are some guest stars, but I don’t know what we can say.”
“We have got some cracking guest stars,” Ahmadi added. “I was properly starstruck with one.”
The actress also spoke a bit about what to expect from season 2, teasing: “It’s like season one, but upgraded. Some of the episode have higher stakes.
“More of the same, but amped up. It goes into more of our characters a bit more, it goes into the backstory of our characters.”

Marshall previously expressed hope at working with the other Death in Paradise detectives, telling Digital Spy in February: “I would say there’s always a possibility of something like that.”
Beyond Paradise was renewed for season 2 in April, executive producer Tim Key saying at the time: “We’ve been blown away by the audience response to the show and are so happy that people have taken it to their hearts.
“We can’t wait to get our amazing cast back together to continue the story – and to be able to pay a visit to Shipton Abbott at Christmas is even better.”
Death in Paradise and its spin-off, Beyond Paradise, air on BBC One and stream on BBC iPlayer.
