Acorn TV’s development division, Acorn Media Enterprises, co-produced the final season. Called a “glorious streaming service… an essential must-have” (The Hollywood Reporter), Acorn TV is North America’s most popular streaming service focused on British and international television from RLJ Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: RLJE).

Beloved by fans and acclaimed by critics, this “wistful, subtle comedy” (The Guardian) is “a remarkable series paying tribute to the glory of unremarkable lives” (The Times).

To save up money for a place of their own, Andy (Mackenzie Crook) and his wife, Becky (Rachael Stirling), have moved in with Becky’s formidable mother (Diana Rigg), and Andy’s new position as an archaeologist is not the dream job he thought it would be. Lance (Toby Jones) worries that having his daughter live with him is causing problems for his girlfriend. And to top it off, Andy and Lance may lose their favorite detecting field to the construction of a new solar farm. This delightful comedy continues to unearth the hidden depths of those who call themselves ‘detectorists’.

My Thoughts 

Detectorists is a comedy that centers around two friends who have a slight obsession with metal detecting.  Andy and Lance spend all of their time looking for treasure and Andy's girlfriend doesn't like it. There are six episodes in this season including:

1- Andy and Becky move in with her mom, but there's a lot of tension. Lance's daughter is causing stress in his relationship as well.

2- Andy & Lance find some great stuff but run into their rivals. Toni wants Lance to get hypnotized to get over his seasickness. 

3- Lance and Andy have to fight their rivals to get the best finds. Andy wants to give up on his job, and Lance has an unexpected visitor. 

4- Lance tries to chase down the bird that took his gold coin. Andy gets s new job, and Toni runs into Lance's ex-wife.

5- The guy's favorite field is being turned into a solar farm. Kate tries to mend fences with Lance.

6- Kate movies into Toni's boathouse. Andy & Lance head out for one last hunt in the field. 

This fun series is full of laughs and a great way to unwind. I'm sorry to see it coming to an end. To grab a copy of the final seeason for yourself, visit Acorn Media or head over to Amazon.
