ITV commissions fourth season of Endeavour

endeavour_specials_07_0The consensus seemed to be that the recent, third series of Endeavour wasn’t the best. But there’s something extremely comforting about the show – the Oxford surroundings, the 1960s setting, and, of course, the fact that Morse himself (albeit a younger Morse) is on our screens – so we’re delighted that ITV has commissioned the show for a fourth series.

*Whispers* there may be mild spoilers after the jump

The series return to ITV for a fourth series – probably early next year – following the strong audience reaction to series three. This new series will be set in 1967.

The fourth series sees Shaun Evans return as the young Morse, while the it’ll be written once again by Russell Lewis, who also wrote for Inspector Morse and created Endeavour.

Furthermore, Roger Allam will return as Endeavour’s senior officer, Detective Inspector Fred Thursday. Endeavour and Thursday have forged an unmissable partnership since they came together on screen in January 2012 in a one off single film to mark the 25th anniversary of Inspector Morse. Mammoth Screen will produce the new set of films, which begin filming on location in Oxford during the late Spring of 2016.

  1. Anything that gives us more of Roger Allam is a good thing in my book
