PBS has confirmed when the fifth season of Endeavour will begin airing in the US.
The Inspector Morse prequel series launched in 2012 and last year celebrated the 30th anniversary of Morse on ITV.
Shaun Evans is back as the young Endeavour Morse in six new feature-length crime mysteries.
Set in 1968, the new season begins with Morse having finally passed his Sergeant’s exams just as Oxford City Police merges into Thames Valley Constabulary creating uncertainty for everyone at Cowley CID. And despite Joan Thursday (Sara Vickers) return to Oxford, much also remains unresolved following her disappearance the previous year and Endeavour’s unexpected proposal.
Season 5 will be airing this summer on Masterpiece on PBS at 9/8c on Sunday nights from June 24 to July 29.
Watch the trailer:
Roger Allam (The Missing) returns as Morse’s mentor, Detective Inspector Fred Thursday, alongside Anton Lesser (The Crown) as Chief Superintendent Reginald Bright, Dakota Blue Richards (Skins) as WPC Shirley Trewlove, Sean Rigby (Gunpowder) as Sergeant Jim Strange, James Bradshaw (Primeval) as Dr. Max DeBryn, Caroline O’Neil (Last Tango In Halifax) as Win Thursday, and Abigail Thaw (I Want My Wife Back) as Dorothea Frazil.
Season 5 also introduces Poldark actor Lewis Peek as new recruit Detective Constable George Fancy, whom Morse is reluctantly tasked with mentoring.
Guest stars include Donald Sumpter (Game Of Thrones), Phil Daniels (New Tricks), Emma Rigby (Prisoners’ Wives), Steve Elder (Apple Tree Yard) and Robin Weaver (Call The Midwife).
Season 4 is available now on DVD.
Endeavour was renewed for a sixth season by ITV earlier this year, to air in 2019.
