"Bergerac" is set for a new television reboot.
The hit 1980s detective drama starred John Nettles as titular character Jim Bergerac - who didn't always follow the rules set by the fictional Bureau des Étrangers - and it has been revealed that the classic will be making an updated comeback, which is already in development.
The original Jersey-based series - which ran for nine seasons from 1981 until its finale in 1991 - was originally produced by the BBC and featured Nettles as a maverick detective sergeant.
It has been announced that Artists Studios, Endemol Shine UK and Westward Studios are planning a reboot of the classic crime series, and they have confirmed that the series will stay true to the original's "Jersey home".
Brian Constantine, CEO of Westward Studios, said: "I'm excited at the prospect that "Bergerac" may be returning to our screens once again.
"It's a much-loved drama and a real boost for Jersey, my home, where "Bergerac" has become part of the island's identity."
The executive producer of Artists Studios, Gub Neal admitted that the much-loved series will be "updated for the present day" and will take the form of a series like its predecessor.
He added: "We've been trying to bring back "Bergerac" for some time and I'm very glad that we have the next generation of such an iconic show in development.
"Updated for the present day, it will deal with contemporary stories-of-the-week that run alongside a strong serial spine."
