The Brokenwood Mysteries Season 8: Release Date, Everything You Need To Know!

‘The Brokenwood Mysteries’ is a crime drama television show that debuted in 2014. The series follows Detective Inspector Mike Shepherd as he investigates various murder cases in the small town of Brokenwood.

Because of its compelling plot, the show’s seven seasons have received widespread critical acclaim. Throughout the season, the characters’ conflicts form a loose connection. If you’re curious about the eighth season of ‘The Brokenwood Mysteries,’ here’s everything we know.

What Is the Plot of the Brokenwood Mysteries Season 8?

Season 7 of ‘The Brokenwood Mysteries’ sees Mike and Kristin solving new grisly murder cases that keep viewers glued to their seats. Season 7 features complex character drama as well as the show’s trademark dry humour.


As if that weren’t enough to keep fans interested, the cases this time are even more reflective of the current socio-political climate, making the narrative even more compelling. In season 8, Mike and Kristin will most likely continue driving around town in Mike’s vintage Holden Kingswood car, solving new cases.

Although their squabbles have subsided recently, they still butt heads over the specifics of their investigations. We could also see progress in both characters’ romantic lives. Mike may finally address Cristina’s romantic feelings for him, while Kristin may end her streak of bad dating luck in the new season.

We also expect Sam to have more hilariously awkward and uncomfortable interactions with the suspects and the wise-cracking Jared to continue getting drawn into investigations and assisting the detectives as he frequently does.

Who Could Appear in Season 8 of The Brokenwood Mysteries?

Neill Rea plays the unconventional and abrasive Detective Mike Shepherd, while Fern Sutherland plays his intelligent and rule-following partner, Detective Kristin Sims. Both lead actors are expected to return in season 8.

Nic Sampson as Detective Constable Sam Breen, Cristina Ionda as Dr Gina Kadinsky, and Pana Hema Taylor as Mike’s neighbor Jared Morehu is also expected to return.

Because each episode revolves around a new mystery and new characters, our guess as to which new cast members will be added is as good as yours at the moment.

Season 8 Premiere Date for The Brokenwood Mysteries

Season 7 of ‘The Brokenwood Mysteries’ premiered on AcronTV on March 29, 2021, and is set to conclude on May 4, 2021. The seventh season deviates from the previous season’s four-episode pattern, consisting of six two-hour episodes.

Season 8 has yet to receive an official statement from the network or the show’s creators. Given the show’s binge-worthy format and growing popularity outside of its native New Zealand, a season 8 renewal would not be surprising.

The show usually returns with new seasons in the fall, except for season 7, which was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If the mystery crime drama is renewed in the coming months, season 8 of ‘The Brokenwood Mysteries’ could premiere at the end of 2022.
