Season 12  Storylines and other tidbits:

From showrunner Peter Mitchell: "Normally, we pick it up three or four months later and I think that’s so we can start off on a fresh foot while doing some housekeeping as to what happened last year...

  • We have an idea that Julia and Murdoch might be writing a book together, which could be fun.
  • We might actually find George’s girl of his dreams this year.
  • There might be some interesting developments in the Brackenreid household and the wedding bells will indeed ring for Henry Higgins.
  • I think we might have Alexander Graham Bell back—he’s a fun character—and introduce the architect Frank Lloyd Wright… a couple historical figures we haven’t seen yet and a couple we’ve seen in the past. We’re just getting started."
  • The Official Murdoch Mysteries Fan Newsletter delivered via email on August 14th: countdown 41 days until Season 12 premiere!
  • Hélène Joy and Yannick Bisson make the September cover of Beyond Fashion prior to the Season 12 premiere and reveal "a year of new beginnings, of pushing upwards and onward":
    • Dr. Ogden moves into the field of surgery.
    • Established characters will be more fleshed out with highlight episodes (hint: “someone has a child we don’t know about”)!
    • A very famous Canadian comedian returns...
    • More inventions, possible advent of television…but not quite what one expects.
    • In addition, characters who formed William Murdoch at an early age.
  • MM Production team has a new Costume Designer on board.
  • Downton Abbey’s Sophie McShera (Daisy) guest stars in Murdoch Mystery Mansion.
