In a press release this morning, ITV announced the network has commissioned 4 new episodes of the crime drama Inspector Lewis (titled just Lewis in the UK).

A spin-off of the long-running Inspector Morse mystery series, Inspector Lewis stars Kevin Whately as Detective Inspector Robert "Robbie" Lewis and Laurence Fox as his partner DS Hathaway, of the Thames Valley Police investigating murder in and around Oxford. ITV just concluded airing 4 episodes of the fourth series in May. The first two series (seasons) are available on DVD from Telemystery: Inspector Lewis.

Production on the new episodes is expected to begin this month. Colin Dexter, author of the Inspector Morse mysteries, which introduced the Lewis character, is a consultant for the series.
