We are here with everything you need to know about this upcoming season of the show. So without taking much of your time let’s take a quick look at everything we have gathered up for you here.
Shetland Season 6: When is the release happening?
All the previous five season, of the show has been a massive success and we are expecting the same from the sixth one too.
In December 2019 i.e. after a few months after the conclusion of the fifth season, it was declared that it had been renewed for the sixth season. Plus, it was a double treat for the show’s fans that the crime drama is going to have two more seasons that will air in 2020 and 2021 respectively.
For now, there is no specific release date about the sixth season of the show. Though, it is been anticipated that the sixth season will come out in November. But, we can’t be sure of anything as there is no official confirmation about this and we need to wait for them to confirm the things.
We will keep you updated as soon as something comes up.

Shetland Season 6: What about the plotline?
In the fifth season of the show, we saw Jimmy investigating the murder of a young Nigerian man, Daniel, and the disappearance of his sister, Zezi, after several hands washed up on Shetland Beach.
Jimmy suspects that the Heyes family, a human trafficking syndicate on the island, is responsible for killing Daniel and kidnapping Zezi. However, they are shortly afterward found murdered in their home, with just one surviving member of the family left for dead.
As for now, there are no revelations about the plot of the sixth season. But we are expecting it to pick up from the points where it left us in the fifth season.
