Death in Paradise star Joséphine Jobert has hinted that she could be returning to acting. The news comes after fans have speculated that she could return alongside Ralf Little in the newly announced Death in Paradise spin-off which stars the first ever female lead detective.

Jobert played the role of Detective Sergeant Florence Cassell in Death in Paradise. She joined the cast in season four as a Sergeant, rising through the ranks to become Detective. We last saw her character in the season finale of season 13, where she had returned from witness protection and reconnected with former love interest Neville Parker, played by Ralf Little. The pair ended up leaving Saint Marie together, with Little exiting the show much to fan’s disappointment.

Is Joséphine Jobert returning to Death in Paradise?

The French actor shared a cryptic hint that she might be returning to acting. Taking to Instagram on Sunday (April 14), Jobert gave fans the chance to ask her a question on Instagram stories anonymously. One user queried: “ When will you go back to acting?”

Jobert shared her reply with her Instagram followers, stating: “That’s one of the rules in business. Things can be pretty quiet for months, and then all of a sudden, everything happens at once.” Adding: “To be continued.”

The BBC confirmed last Monday (April 8) that a brand new Australian spin-off called Return to Paradise was in the works, with the franchise’s first ever female lead detective played by Home and Away’s Anna Samson.
