Endeavour Announces its Final Season

Shaun Evans as Endeavour Morse

After ten phenomenally successful years, producers Mammoth Screen, screenwriter Russell Lewis, Shaun Evans and Roger Allam have mutually decided to bring the internationally renowned Endeavour to a close, and the season currently filming in Oxford (Season 9) will be the last.

Commented Executive Producer Damien Timmer on behalf of producers, Mammoth Screen:“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 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!”

MASTERPIECE Executive Producer Susanne Simpson adds, “Endeavour has been one of our most beloved MASTERPIECE series. Though we hate to see it end, we have been so proud to present this wonderful series to our viewers.”

A prequel to the beloved Inspector Morse series, Endeavour first aired on MASTERPIECE on PBS in 2012 as a single film. Since then 32 more films have been broadcast with a further three currently in production, bringing the total to 36.Fans in the US can look forward to Season 8 of Endeavour which airs Sundays, June 19- July 3 on MASTERPIECE PBS. Susanne Simpson is the Executive Producer of MASTERPIECE.

Text of video:
How Clear, How Lovely Bright by Alfred Edward Housman

How clear, how lovely bright,
How beautiful to sight
Those beams of morning play;
How heaven laughs out with glee
Where, like a bird set free,
Up from the eastern sea,
Soars the delightful day.

Today I should be strong,
No more shall yield to wrong,
Shall squander life no more;
Days lost, I know not how,
I shall retrieve them now;
Now I shall keep the vow
I never kept before.

Ensanguining the skies
How heavily it dies
Into the west away;
Past touch and sight and sound
Not further to be found,
How hopeless under ground
Falls the remorseful day.
