The actor, who makes his debut as Jai Sharma this week, admitted that he is excited to be part of series producer Gavin Blyth's vision for the show's future.
In June, Blyth promised to make a number of "slow-burn" changes to the Yorkshire-based drama in an attempt to increase its appeal to viewers. He joined the programme in January following the departure of predecessor Anita Turner.
Speaking to DS, Bisson commented: "It's great to be part of a new show. You've got new characters coming in, new actors - a lot of really talented, experienced actors - and a great team of directors and writers as well.
"Gavin's pulled his best team around him and it really shows in the scripts. They're really well-written and crafted. When you first start on a show, you're not sure what your script's going to be like or if your character's well-defined, and our new family have been from the start."
Bisson's first storyline on the soap sees him opening up a sweets factory with siblings Nikhil (Rik Makarem) and Priya (Effie Woods).
