After a year's wait, Death in Paradise (Season 9) is finally back with a twist in the very first episode. Last year, the show received a viewership of 8.42 million, where Mooney solved Adam's murder case. In the climax of the season, after the mystery was solved, Mooney suddenly saw his daughter, Siobhan comes to the island.
What an unfortunate New Years' Eve for the woman who got stabbed before joining the celebration. This season, Mooney is to find out who is the man behind the mask. What we also will watch over the season is what Siobhan was doing on the island.
From season 1 to season 8, we have seen a lot of change in characters in the show. This also includes the DI, and season 9 will have a 4th officer coming in that position too.
