The eighth season of the British mystery series Endeavor gets back to TV screens in fall 2021 — in the U.K. New episodes will air on ITV at some point before the finish of 2021, the telecaster has reported. However, U.S. fans should show restraint. PBS still can’t seem to uncover precisely when the new season will air stateside.
Will there be a season 8 of ‘Endeavour’?
We’ve known for some time that Endeavor Season 8 was underway. ITV renewed the prequel to the long-running Inspector Morse series back in August 2019, preceding season 7 broadcasted. The Oxford-set show follows the early career of cerebral detective Endeavor Morse (Shaun Evans), who, alongside DCI Fred Thursday (Roger Allam) and different officials, explores murders and different crimes in the college town.
As he did in season 7, Evans will direct the first of season 8’s three episodes.
‘Endeavour’ Season 8 to air in 2022 in U.S.
Production on Endeavor Season 8 started in April 2021. In July, ITV uncovered that the new episodes would air at some point in the fall of 2021, however it has not reported a particular premiere date.
Endeavour is broadcast in the U.S. on Masterpiece. A premiere date for season 8 hasn’t yet been reported. Notwithstanding, PBS has affirmed to Showbiz Cheat Sheet that the new episodes will air at some point in 2022.
The next season of the PBS mystery series is set in 1971
The next season of Endeavor will occur in 1971. The first episode focuses on a death threat to Jack Swift, the star striker for the Oxford Wanderers. The examination places Morse and the rest of the team “at the heart of the glitz and glamour of 1970s football, exposing the true cost of success and celebrity, and with it, a deep-rooted division that is soon reflected much closer to home,” as per PBS.
In an interview with PBS, Evans likewise indicated that the show is working toward a permanent break between Morse and Thursday, his mentor. (The Thursday character is never referenced in the Inspector Morse series or the books on which that show is based.)
“Part of our duty is to give us a reason why Morse of the later incarnation never mentions this mentor of his,” Evans said. “So Thursday has to do something, or there has to be a fissure in the relationship, where he’s never mentioned again. We’re coming to that point now, I think, and we’ve been slowly, slowly building towards it.’
