Plot Synopsis

In this latest version of MAIGRET, which is comprised of two-hour episodes, Rowan Atkinson stars as world-renowned fictional French detective Jules Maigret, who investigates murder in 1950s Paris.
After being available on North America on BritBox and on Amazon Prime, MAIGRET had its U.S. linear television premiere on Saturday, August 31, 2019 from 7-9pm ET/5-7pm PT, with an additional episode debuting on each subsequent Saturday through September 21:

"Maigret Sets a Trap" (U.S. premiere on Saturday, August 31, 2019 from 7-9pm ET/5-7pm PT): The detective investigates the murder of four women found dead in the Montmartre region of Paris, during the summer of 1955. After setting up an elaborate trap, Maigret is able to uncover crucial details of the events.

"Maigret's Dead Man" (U.S. premiere on Saturday, September 7, 2019 from 7-9pm ET/5-7pm PT): One morning, an agitated man calls the Police judiciaire asking for Maigret. He claims he's being followed by someone trying to kill him. Before Maigret can get the details, he hangs up, calls back again from various cafes, until the calls finally stop. That night, his body is found, his face badly beaten, stabbed to death. Riddled with guilt for not having saved "his" dead man, Maigret is determined to find the murderer.

"Maigret's Night at the Crossroads" (Season 2 U.S. premiere on Saturday, September 14, 2019 from 7-9pm ET/5-7pm PT): The body of a Jewish jeweler is found in the car of a Danish national who lives with his sister. When the man is taken in for questioning, he denies all knowledge of the murder, but establishing his true identity is problematic. Maigret attends the funeral of an old colleague and then works with another old colleague on the case.

"Maigret in Montmartre" (U.S. premiere on Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 7-9pm ET/5-7pm PT): Arlette, an exotic dancer at "Picratt" club, comes to the police for help, telling Maigret about a "countess" who is in grave danger, but she then flees, distrustful and afraid. Soon afterwards, she is found murdered; then, the countess' body is discovered. Maigret must discover the link between the two women as he and his men hunt for the killer in Montmartre's streets.
