Acorn TV aired the first season, The Chelsea Detective in March 2021. Since then, many have asked: Will there be another season of The Chelsea Detective?” Although there was no news initially, we are thrilled to report that casting notices for season 2 have been posted.
What is The Chelsea Detective All About?
Adrian Scarborough ( Gavin & Stacey Miranda) plays DI Max Arnold. He is a recently divorced officer who lives in a boathouse and hopes to reunite with his wife his. He is smart, determined, and, perhaps most importantly, does n’t care about his wealth or status his when it ‘s about getting justice. He was raised by a local bookshop proprietor and is a Chelsea resident for life – but not the elite group of people who make up the majority of the neighborhood.
He works with DC Priya Shamsie (Sonita) to investigate the deaths in Chelsea, a beautiful and upscale area with a dark underbelly of corruption, greed, and murder. Shamsie was born and raised in Streatham. This vibrant, but less wealthy area of London is where Shamsie grew up.

It won’t surprise anyone who is familiar with London’s neighborhoods that The Chelsea Detective was set in the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea. It’s about as posh as it gets, with many homes occupied by royals, millionaire/billionaire business types, and oligarchs.
You can search for “Chelsea” on Zoopla if you are interested in local real estate. One-bed flats and studios are available for as little as 300k to 500k GBP (roughly $400 to 600k), while semi-detached luxury homes can cost up to 20-30 million GBP.
This area is home of Hyde Park and Kensington Palace, as well as the Saatchi Gallery (natural history museum), the Royal Albert Hall, Hyde Park, and the Royal Albert Hall. It also houses some of the most wealthy people in the world. The area is also home to the US’ largest American population, approximately 6.5% of Chelsea residents being born here.
Between Chelsea and Belgravia is Sloane Square. This square is where the “Sloane Rangers”, or Sloane Rangers, get their names. It’s a nickname for someone who is wealthy, educated, and sophisticated. Sloane Rangers have been used to describe Lady Diana and the Duchess Of Cambridge.
Some past residents include TS Eliot and George Eliot. Mary Shelley, Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Freddie Mercury, Enid Bleyton, Francis Bacon. Enid Blyton. Vivien Leeigh. Kylie Minogue. Mark Twain. Henry James. JRR Tolkien. Oscar Wilde.
You can now virtually walk around the area using Google StreetView. It will take you along the Chelsea Embankment. You have two options: you can turn right to go into the neighborhood, or continue along the path that runs alongside the river and the gardens.
