Shaun Evans will be back as a young Endeavour Morse for a seventh season.
UK detective drama Endeavour will return for a seventh series in 2020.
Shaun Evans will be back as a young Endeavour Morse, alongside Roger Allam as mentor DI Fred Thursday.
Written once again by Russell Lewis, the new series will be set in 1970 and production will begin later this year in Oxford.
The most recent series launched with a consolidated UK audience of 6.9m, marking Endeavour’s biggest audience since 2014.
“We’re thrilled ITV has asked #TeamEndeavour to continue to add to the Casebook of Colin Dexter’s immortal creation, and take E. Morse and Oxford’s Finest into a new decade of decimalisation, package holidays, the Oil Crisis, Blackouts, Three Day Weeks, and Europa Endlos,” he said.
Head of Drama at ITV, Polly Hill added: “We’re incredibly proud of Endeavour and delighted to have recommissioned the drama for a seventh series. Writer and creator Russell Lewis continues to engage viewers with carefully crafted stories for Endeavour and Thursday as we move into the 1970s. We’re grateful to the production team at Mammoth Screen for continuing to deliver such a high quality drama.”
Endeavour has aired in Australia on 7TWO and ABC.
