About this deal

Sadly, Don't Forget the Driver was axed by the BBC due to COVID. Jones and co-writer Tim Crouch had written a second season, and they've indicated they're still open to pursuing it with another network. Last Updated on November 21, 2021 by Stefanie Hutson Fans of the BBC comedy series Detectorists all seem to share one big complaint – that there isn't more of it. After our hopes were crushed when word came there wouldn't be any new episodes, we might have a new reason to be optimistic. What's Detectorists About? I guess I’d say it’s a comedy about ordinary people and their hobbies, but it’s actually turned out to be much more than that. And in hindsight, I can’t really claim that I set out to create this thing that explored so deeply these ordinary lives. Essentially it’s about two friends who just spend their time out in the fields metal detecting. I just totally proved your point there. I can’t really describe it.”

Who knows what they might be called if season 4 happens… Is Detectorists Over? Will There Be a Fourth Season? Will these guys return for a season 4? Toby Jones has also stated that he would find it “hard to resist” doing another season of Detectorists. Jones penned and starred in his own offbeat comedy, Don't Forget the Driver, in 2019. The series featured Jones as a Bognor Regis-based coast driver whose life began to change after finding a dead body on the beach. A rival metal detecting club in Danebury includes two members the DMDC refers to as ‘Simon and Garfunkel' due to the striking resemblance. Their club name changes each season.

There is no official release date for Detectorists season 4. For now, all we have is confirmation that Crook is thinking of reviving the series. If there are any further updates, we'll edit this post to include them. I feel I hardly need to comment on this series as it has already received critical acclaim. However, I will just add my great appreciation for this beautiful, subtle comedy. At the moment, when so many comedies are in-your-face and gag-led, it is a delight to have a flawless, gentle comedy about people one can imagine meeting in real life, who -- in a century obsessed with superficialities -- are portrayed with sensitive understanding of their obsessions and problems, who are tied to the rural land by their obsession with metal-detecting. The humour arises from the sort of things which happen to all of us from time to time, as we try to survive with affections intact and humanity undimmed in a rather insensitive world. If you are not used to the slow pace, essential to establish the calm in which such reflections can arise, and the hobby be truthfully represented, you may find it a struggle at first but once you relax into it, it has delights and rewards which only multiply the more one watches and repeat the watching of this excellent creation. Read full review As for who would star in Detectorists season 4, it's likely that at least Crook and Jones would return – and we certainly hope we'd be seeing all the DMDC members and Simon & Garfunkel again.

Toby Jones's character, Lance Slater, is a forklift driver and proud owner of a yellow Triumph TR7. His ex-wife Maggie (Lucy Benjamin) runs a New Age supplies shop and has a habit of disrupting Lance's life. As Crook put it, they're “ actually searching for love and for where they belong and all these other things in their life.” Acorn Media are releasing Detectorists Complete Collection and the Detectorists Movie Special DVD’s on Monday in the UK.

I would love to do some more. I've got a full year next year, but if there's a chance to do a bit more Detectorists I'd love to revisit it, yeah – and I know Toby would be into it as well.

Although metal detecting is the central activity in the show, it's really a story about friendship and getting the chance to peer into the lives of a unique – yet totally ordinary – group of hobbyists.
