Jessica Fletcher and her mysteries will soon be available on demand, because seasons one through five of Murder, She Wrote are heading to Amazon Prime Video.

The long-running crime drama aired on CBS from 1984 to 1996. It features Dame Angela Lansbury, noted star of stage and screen, as Jessica Fletcher, a mystery writer with a knack for detective work and crime solving. The series is set in Cabot Cove, Maine, where Fletcher, who is a retired English teacher-turned-mystery writer, finds herself in the vicinity of murders, clues, and investigations which she never fails to help solve.

Throughout the series' twelve seasons, Lansbury was lauded for her role and garnered nominations for ten Golden Globes and twelve Emmy Awards. Lansbury is also well known for her work on Broadway—she was nominated for seven Tony Awards and won five for her roles in productions of Mame, Gypsy, and Sweeney Todd. Lansbury has also appeared in many movies, including the Agatha Christie adaptations Death on the Nile and The Mirror Crack'd, as well as other films such as The Manchurian Candidate, The Lady Vanishes, and The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Murder, She Wrote also features William Windom as Dr. Seth Hazlitt, Ron Masak as Sheriff Mort Metzger, Louis Herthum Deputy Andy Broom, Tom Bosely as Sheriff Amos Tupper, Will Nye as Deputy Floyd, and Michael Horton as Grady Fletcher. The series was created by Peter S. Fischer, Richard Levinson, and William Link. Murder, She Wrote welcomed many guest stars, both one-time and recurring, including Jerry Orbach, Eli Wallach, George Clooney, Tippi Hedren, Megan Mullally, and Cynthia Nixon.

Beginning on April 1, the first five seasons of the series will be available to stream via Amazon Prime Video.
