ITV has released a trailer for the upcoming sixth season of Endeavour, with Shaun Evans set once again to portray the young incarnation of Inspector Morse. You can watch the promo vid here.
Created by Russell Lewis, the show began its run in 2012. Endeavour season 6 will be set in 1969, at a point where our hero has grown a moustache, and you can watch the trailer right here:
Plus, here’s a short synopsis that came with the trailer:
“It’s 1969, and things have taken a darker turn for the old Cowley team. With Endeavour, Thursday and the gang now scattered across Oxfordshire, it takes a series of brutal crimes to reunite them. Now joined by former adversary DCI Ronnie Box and his sidekick DS Alan Jago, the gang must battle crime and corruption to finally solve their greatest challenge – the truth behind George Fancy’s death.”
And here’s a longer one that’s been doing the rounds for a while:
“Following the dissolution of Oxford City Police and the merging with Thames Valley Constabulary at the end of the last series, the latest instalment is set in 1969 and picks up with the team dispersed as they find their feet in their various new roles. However, despite their separation, the tragic murder of DC George Fancy still hangs over them both collectively and individually, with the case remaining unresolved.
“With their new positions also come new colleagues and responsibilities. Thursday must adjust to working with new boss DI Ronnie Box played by Simon Harrison (Fearless) and junior DS Alan Jago played by Richard Riddell (Bodyguard). Meanwhile, Joan has settled back in Oxford and is training to work in social services under the mentor of new manager Viv Wall played by Alison Newman (EastEnders).”
Endeavour will return to ITV in February 2019, and we’ll bring you more news as we hear it.
