PBS’s “Masterpiece Mystery” has picked up a prequel to its popular "Inspector Morse" series, reports Deadline.com.

Called "Endeavour," the series is set in 1965 and stars Shaun Evans as a younger version of the iconic character played by Colin Dexter. The story will follow the investigation into a missing schoolgirl, which will bring Endeavour Morse to Oxford.

Another "Inspector Morse" spinoff is also slated to air on “Masterpiece,” with "Inspector Lewis" slated to start airing Sept. 4. "Inspector Lewis" stars Kevin Whately in the role he plays in "Inspector Morse," the story notes.


  1. will there be a series 6 LEWIS????

  2. Chief Inspector Morse was played by John Thaw. Colin Dexter is the author who created the character in his novels. Dexter made cameo appearances in almost every Morse episode. Please get your facts right.

  3. Yes there will be a series 6 for Lewis – ITV announced in June. The title of the first three episodes are Generation of Vipers, The Age of Foolishness and Death of the Author.
    I assume they will air sometime next year – but ITV has not given any exact dates yet.
