Shaun Evans talks Endeavor’s future after series 5

Endeavour is about to begin its fifth set of stories on ITV, and star Shaun Evans has been speaking about the possibility of more episodes in the future.

He told DigitalSpy: “This series definitely sets up more for a return. There are lots of questions to answer, but there are lots of factors involved so you just take this job one day at a time.

“I’ve been very lucky to play this role. I’m amazed we’ve done so many so far. I feel very grateful that Endeavour is still popular and doing well. I’m also very grateful to have the opportunity to work some incredible people.”

A first look at the upcoming series landed online yesterday, and you can watch it below:

“We’ve made six feature-length films this time and kept the quality of the work up,” Evans added. “That, in itself, is cause for celebration. If we’re lucky enough to do some more, and we all want to, that’s great. But, if not, we’re all very proud of the series.”

Endeavour returns on Sunday 4 February at 8pm.
