‘Endeavour’ To End With Season 9

ITV has announced the producers of Endeavour have taken the creative decision to bring the Inspector Morse prequel to an end with the upcoming 9th Season.

After 10 phenomenally successful years, producers Mammoth Screen, and screenwriter Russell Lewis, Shaun Evans and Roger Allam have mutually decided to bring the internationally renowned ‘Endeavour’ to a close, and the series currently filming in Oxford will be the last.

“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,” commented Executive Producer Damien Timmer on behalf of producers, Mammoth Screen. “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’, which stars Shaun Evans as DS Endeavour Morse, alongside Roger Allam as DCI Fred Thursday, first aired on ITV as a single film on 2 January 2012 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Inspector Morse’s television debut. Since then, 32 more films have been broadcast with a further three currently in production, bringing the total to 36.

“ITV’s drama commissioning team respectfully accepts this creative decision and would like to extend heartfelt thanks to everyone associated with Endeavour who have made the drama such a well-loved part of the UK’s drama landscape,” added ITV in a statement. “ITV would particularly like to thank Damien Timmer, Russell Lewis, Shaun Evans and Roger Allam who have created television history following in the footsteps of Morse’s acclaimed creator, the late, great, Colin Dexter and the much-missed John Thaw.”

The critically-acclaimed drama is produced by leading drama indie Mammoth Screen (part of ITV Studios) in partnership with Masterpiece. Each episode of the new season has been written by Russell Lewis who has penned all the ‘Endeavour’ screenplays to date.
