‘Endeavour’ (and his new moustache) returns in Season 6 trailer – watch!

The first trailer for the new season of Endeavour has been released.

The latest episodes of the Inspector Morse prequel series began filming in and around Oxford last summer.

The detective drama’s four new crime mysteries will be set in 1969 and are once again written by Russell Lewis, who has created all 23 episodes of Endeavour so far.

ITV has confirmed that Season 6 will begin in the UK in February.

Watch the new trailer:

The official synopsis reads: “It’s 1969, and things have taken a darker turn for the old Cowley team. With Endeavour, Thursday and the gang now scattered across Oxfordshire, it takes a series of brutal crimes to reunite them.

“Now joined by former adversary DCI Ronnie Box and his sidekick DS Alan Jago, the gang must battle crime and corruption to finally solve their greatest challenge – the truth behind George Fancy’s death.”

Season 6 will air in the USA later this year on Masterpiece on PBS.

The fifth season of Endeavour is available on DVD on Amazon.
