Endeavour will be coming to an end after 10 years, it has been confirmed.
The British detective drama, starring Shaun Evans as Endeavour Morse, is currently filming its final series in Oxford – which has been revealed as its last series.
ITV announced today that producers Mammoth Screen, and screenwriter Russell Lewis, Shaun Evans and Roger Allam have mutually decided to bring the internationally renowned Endeavour to a close.
Executive Producer Damien Timmer said in a statement: “Endeavour has been a real labour of love for all of us, and we salute Russell Lewis for his extraordinary achievement in chronicling Endeavour Morse’s coming of age across 72 hours of tv.
“Russell always knew where he wanted the series to end, and that Remorseful Day is nearly upon us! We’d like to thank Shaun and Roger and all the other members of the Endeavour family on and off screen, and to the show’s fans both in the U.K. and abroad.
“Russell has many surprises up his sleeve for the final three films, with the return of some familiar faces and new challenges for Endeavour and Thursday to face before the final goodbye!”
Endeavour first began in 2012 and is the third of the Inspector Morse trilogy series, following on from the original Inspector Morse, which aired from 1987 until 2000), and its sequel Lewis (2006 – 2015).
Set in the sixties, the series follows a young Morse as he investigates various cases – the first in the pilot episode being a missing 15-year-old schoolgirl.
Among the big moments over the years has seen Morse being shot in series one, accused of murdering a colleague, his disastrous love life and struggle with alcoholism.
The ninth and final series is due to air later this year and will consist of three episodes.
