ITV has commissioned another season of detective drama Endeavour.
Shaun Evans (The Scandalous Lady W) will return as the young Morse alongside Roger Allam (The Lady in the Van) as Endeavour’s senior officer, Detective Inspector Fred Thursday.
Endeavour launched in January 2012 with a one-off single film to mark the 25th anniversary of Inspector Morse and the prequel’s third season concluded on ITV in January, averaging 6.3 million viewers and a 22% share of the audience.
Set in 1967, the new films will again be written by Endeavour creator Russell Lewis, with Inspector Morse author Colin Dexter acting as a consultant to the producers.
Writer Russell Lewis commented: “#TeamEndeavour looks forward to welcoming you back to Cowley Police Station early next year – when we reopen the 1960s casebook of Detective Constable Endeavour Morse and unravel a set of brand new murder mysteries.”
ITV’s Director of Drama, Steve November added: “We’re delighted with the audiences reaction to Endeavour and it was an easy decision to recommission due to the quality of the scripts from Russell Lewis and the excellent production values from Damien and his production team.”
Season 4 begins filming on location in Oxford later this spring.
