2009 was Emmerdale's 38th year. At the start of the year the producer Anita Turner and executive producer Keith Richardson  were both still in charge of the programme, though Gavin Blyth and Steve Frost took over each respective roles from Episode 5245 (16th March 2009) onwards.

281 episodes were broadcast during the year. Major storylines included Debbie Dingle and Jasmine Thomas being sent to prison for their parts in Shane Doyle’s death, Sally Spode’s stalking of Ashley Thomas, Jack Sugden’s offscreen death in Spain, the returns of Cain Dingle and Charity Tate and the arrival of three new families - the Wyldes, the Bartons and the Sharmas.

Departures for the year included Jasmine Thomas being jailed for the manslaughter of Shane Doyle. After their affair was revealed, PCs Ross Kirk and Donna Windsor-Dingle both requested transfers - Ross to Newcastle and Donna to Essex. Edna Birch's sister Lily Butterfield leaves with Alan Turner's old friend, Eddy Fox for a trip around the world. While, behind the scenes, Luke Tittensor, who played Daz Eden for five and a half years was sacked after he was charged with GBH. He was promptly written out of the series which saw Daz thrown out of the village by his brother Andy after his relationship with Andy's sister Victoria was exposed by Aaron Livesy. Also, due to the death of his portrayer Clive Hornby in July the previous year, long-running character Jack Sugden was killed off-screen in February; suffering a heart attack while visiting his mother Annie in Spain. This saw the returns of Sheila Mercier for the first time in 13 years and Karl Davies, who at the time, was the most recent actor to play Jack's son Robert.
