ITV Commissions New Series of Endeavour

Endeavour (ITV)

Following the successful airing of Endeavour, a single-episode prequel to the Inspector Morse series, ITV has commissioned four additional 2-hour episodes.

Shaun Evans stars as the young Endeavour Morse, who was played by John Thaw in the original series. The character was created by crime novelist Colin Dexter, who will act as a consultant to the new series.

"It was fantastic that the audience responded so warmly to Endeavour," said Sally Haynes of ITV. "Shaun's portrayal of a legendary character was captivating and Endeavour thoroughly deserves a series — there's so much more we can do with the character."

James Bradshaw will return as Dr. Max Debryn and John Thaw's daughter Abigail will make further guest appearances as Dorothea Frazil.

Filming is expected to begin on location in Oxford later this year.
