ITV has commissioned a third season of Endeavour.
The crime drama will be back for four new films, following the success of Season 2 earlier this year, starring Shaun Evans (The Last Weekend) as the young Detective Constable E. Morse.
Written by Lewis creator and Inspector Morse writer Russell Lewis, Season 3 will be set in 1967, picking up from Season 2’s finale that saw Endeavour Morse placed in police custody, framed for a murder he didn’t commit, and DI Fred Thursday’s life hanging in the balance after being shot in the chest.
ITV has not revealed if Thursday will survive.
Executive producer Russell Lewis commented: “Endeavour ’67… Pepper – Piper – Purple Haze… As ‘Oxford’s finest’ encounter friends and foes both old and new, our next quartet of mysteries will take the audience on a psychedelic Summer of Love fairground ride, filled with twists and turns, shrieks and scares. For something wicked this way comes…”
Actor Shaun Evans added: “I’m really excited to be revisiting the ’60’s as young Morse. The audience reaction to Endeavour has been fantastic and this series promises to be the best we’ve made so far. It’ll be well worth the wait!”
