Fans of Aussie murder mystery drama, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, will be delighted to know that the show is making a comeback. Well, sort of.

HBO Asia Original has announced its next project – the remake of the popular series in Mandarin.

Titled Miss S, the series is set in 1930s Shanghai and tells the story of socialite Su Wenli, aka Miss S, who is also a budding detective. She strikes up an unlikely partnership with serious (and suave) inspector Luo Qiuheng as the duo goes about solving, you guessed it, murder cases.

The 30-episode Mandarin series, which will premiere later this year on HBO Go, stars award-winning actress Ma Yili in the titular role and Gao Weiguang as the inspector.

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, based on Kerry Greenwood's mystery novels, was a three-season long series which stars Essie Davis as the glamorous lady detective. It aired between 2012 and 2015.

Earlier this year, Davis reprised the role in the movie, Miss Fisher And The Crypt Of Tears.
