Doc Martin has been on our screens for many years now; on ITV for U.K audiences and brought to U.S and Canada audiences via Acorn TV.

The British medical comedy-drama stars Martin Clunes as Doc Martin and is set in Portwenn – a fictional seaside village. It’s shot on location in Port Isaac, Cornwall, and has been entertaining viewers as far back as 2004.

Over eight seasons we have consistently tuned in to Dominic Minghella’s creation, following the highs and lows of Dr Martin Ellingham and the residents of Portwenn.

The eighth series began airing September 2017 and as the series concluded one thing has been on our minds: Will Doc Martin be back? 

Is There a New Series of Doc Martin?


It looks like we can expect Doc Martin back on our screens this year.

Reports prematurely suggested that series nine would be the final season. However, that means that we’ll be getting one!

Yet, there’s still more…

Clunes himself hasn’t ruled out the possibility of further seasons and has voiced that Doc Martin has been commissioned further than the restrictions of 2019.

Doc Martin Series 9

A ninth series of Doc Martin should be with us this year, and who knows, perhaps we’ll even get a tenth!

Details of the forthcoming season are under wraps at the moment, but it does look like it’ll contain eight episodes! We can expect to hear more along with its development.

Doc Martin American Remake

An American Remake is currently in development, which isn’t actually as surprising as it sounds. Many UK shows have been adapted to cater further to U.S audiences, and Doc Martin is one of the next in line.

It certainly feels like a quintessentially British show, so it will be interesting to see how the project is handled.

Fortunately, it seems there are plans to continue with Martin Clunes’ portrayal.

The show shall go on!
