‘The Durrells’ return date confirmed: When does Season 4 start on ITV?

ITV has announced when the final season of The Durrells will begin.

Based upon Gerald Durrell’s classic trilogy of Corfu memoirs, the 1930s family period drama series launched in April 2016.

It was confirmed last summer that The Durrells will end this year with its fourth season.

The first of six brand new episodes airs at 8pm on Sunday 7th April on ITV.

Keeley Hawes, who plays matriarch Louisa Durrell, says the last ever episodes “will give the family a fitting and fabulous farewell.”

She’ll be joined once again by Josh O’Connor (Les Miserables), Callum Woodhouse (Cold Feet), Daisy Waterstone (And Then There Were None) and Milo Parker (Mr Holmes) as Louisa’s unruly children, alongside Alexis Georgoulis (My Life In Ruins) as Spiro, Miles Jupp (Howards End) as hapless cousin Basil, Anna Savva (Genius) as housekeeper Lugaretzia, Yorgos Karamihos (Love Is…) as Dr. Theo Stephanides and Lucy Black (Jericho) as Florence Petridis.

While we wait for Season 4 to begin, fans can get busy cooking in the style of The Durrells with a brand new official recipe book.

Dining with the Durrells: Stories and Recipes from the Cookery Archive of Mrs Louisa Durrell will be published on 31st March.

Keeley Hawes made a surprise appearance in Bodyguard parody for the BBC’s Red Nose Day earlier this month.

Season 4 will in the USA this autumn on Masterpiece on PBS.

The Durrells is available on DVD on Amazon.
