Endeavour is returning to ITV for a sixth series, with both Shaun Evans and Roger Allam confirmed to return to their roles as DS Endeavour Morse and DI Fred Thursday.
The new set of films, written by series creator Russell Lewis and produced by Mammoth Screen, will be set in 1969 and go into production later this year for transmission in 2019.
Creator, Russell Lewis said: “As our story reaches the last year of the 1960s, and mankind makes its giant leap, all at #TeamEndeavour look forward to exploring further early chapters in the casebook of Colin Dexter’s beloved creation.”
ITV’s Head of Drama, Polly Hill added: “Endeavour continues to be hugely popular with ITV audiences and we’re delighted to be bringing viewers more films to enjoy.
“Thanks to Russell Lewis’s consistently intriguing scripts and the excellent production values at Mammoth Screen, it is a high quality drama that ITV is immensely proud of.”
