Endeavour, Season 7: US Premiere Date & Where to Watch 1
Roger Allam and Shaun Evans in Season 6 of Endeavour

It seems like ages since Season 6 of Endeavour aired, but we have loads of good news about the future of this delightful Oxford-based mystery series. Not only is Season 7 coming to the US soon, but they've officially renewed for an eighth season! It's great to know that not only is the next season well underway, but we can delay our final goodbyes until at least 2021.


Endeavour Series 7 Production

Back in 2019, the folks behind Endeavour released a photo of a cast readthrough script for the seventh series of Endeavour. As with all the previous episodes of Endeavour, we can see that Russell Lewis is behind this one, too. Lewis is a veteran screenwriter who also did some episodes of Inspector Morse, Kavanagh QC, Lewis, and Cadfael, so it's safe to say the man knows his way around both mysteries and the Morse-universe – or is that unimorse?

Interestingly, Lewis was also a child actor who appeared in The Looking Glass War, Sunday Bloody Sunday, and Young Winston, along with the British kids' classic The Kids from 47A

The seventh series begins on New Year's Eve in 1970, ushering in a new decade. The Castle Gate CID team (where Morse is now working) is called onto the scene when a body is discovered on a canal towpath. The only clue they have is a witness who heard someone whistling.  Great Canal Journeys, this is not.



Is it just me, or is Endeavour Morse channeling a bit of James Bond in this one?


When Does Season 7 of Endeavour Premiere?

Series 7 premiered on the 9th of February, 2020, in the UK. Episode 2 airs on the 15th, and episode 3 airs on the 23rd. There will only be 3 episodes in Season 7.

For the US, it's likely the new season will be available on your local PBS station on the 9th of August, and likely on PBS Masterpiece the next day (as with most PBS Masterpiece titles). 

You can currently catch up with Series 1-6 HERE


Who's Returning for Season 7 of Endeavour?

We know for certain that Shaun Evans is returning as DS Morse. The mustache will not be reprising its role.

Also returning are cast members Roger Allam (Detective Chief Inspector Fred Thursday), Anton Lesser (Chief Superintendent Reginald Bright), Sean Rigby (Detective Sergeant Jim Strange), James Bradshaw (Dr. Max DeBryn), Abigail Thaw (Dorothea Frazil), Caroline O’Neill (Win Thursday) and Sara Vickers (Joan Thursday).


Endeavour is Confirmed for Season 8

Last year, ITV officially confirmed that Endeavour will return for an eighth season. This is a particularly interesting development because people have been speculating for a while about whether there would be another.

Writer Russell Lewis specifically alluded to some events that occur later than 1970, saying “We’re thrilled ITV has asked #TeamEndeavour to continue to add to the Casebook of Colin Dexter’s immortal creation, and take E. Morse and Oxford’s Finest into a new decade of decimalisation, package holidays, the Oil Crisis, Blackouts, Three Day Weeks, and Europa Endlos.”

His comments made a lot of people wonder if there would be more than just Season 7 – but at the same time, fans of the original Inspector Morse and its spinoff, Lewis, will know that Lewis was stopped when it reached the same number of episodes as Inspector Morse. Both had just 33 episodes. By the end of Series 6, Endeavour had racked up 26 episodes and a TV movie.

Series 7 is said to have 3 episodes, which would put the total count up to 30. Will the eighth season be another short one, with just 3 episodes? Or will Endeavour continue on and rack up more total episodes than its predecessors? It remains to be seen…


Will You Watch Season 7 of Endeavour?

I know some fans have soured on the show since it turned a bit darker in recent seasons. Will you continue to watch when Season 7 is released next year? Or are you ready to leave Oxford after so many years of great mystery?

  1. I love Endeavour but sadly britbox no longer carries the series. I have to pay extra to see the PBS Masterpiece series version which PBS sold to amazon prime to stream. I already pay amazon prime and now have to pay exyra for what is supposed to be a public brocast system program which is supposed to be free to public.
    I will miss my beloved british shows. What is happening to my favorite britbox?

  2. Yes, I’ll definitely watch. Also noted in something I was reading about the so-called Pendle Witches that the name Annie Chattox was mentioned and that name appeared on a headstone in the grounds of the church in Bramford during the episode with the nuclear power station.

  3. Endeavor should be allowed to fully evolve into the character that we loved about Morris! Hubby & I will be staying tuned for more adventures from Endeavor!

  4. I am beyond thrilled with this schedule! We watched them backwards starting with Lewis. Even though it’s a darker mood, we just love the characters so much, and the world did get darker.

  5. I loved the original Inspector Morse and this prequel is just as engaging. I particularly appreciate how the writer pays homage to the senior Morse yet to come, with the classical music, tuxedo, the house he just bought (that closing scene brought me to tears!) and his love of the Jaguar sedan.

  6. Absolutely love this show and I love Oxford will not miss any of the new shows. The writing is excellent British TV knows how to do mysteries.

  7. I’m delighted to hear that Endeavour will continue to be available as a series. I do understand Shaun Evans’reluctance to go beyond the numbers of episodes.. Especially as he might not want to be type cast as Morse. He’s entitled to want to be any character he choses. He’s magnificent as Endeavour. If I could ever meet him, just to talk. I would ask if a future female Doctor Character could call his Character EM. As in E. Morse.

  8. I will watch series 17 on my 9th birthday and series 27 on my 100th birthday. Thank you so much for all you have Don for us.

  9. ENDEAVOR sure has our attention. We love the superb quality of mystery, intrigue and want more! The past great mysteries such as: Morse, Vera, Shetland, Midsomer, Unforgotten, Death on Paradise, DCI Banks, and so many more, were the best quality of Mysteries to ever be seen on television. USA TV could catch on to creating quality old fashion mysteries…just a thought!

  10. Thank goodness Endeavour continues with season 7 and possibly 8! We had a bad case of withdrawals when season 5 ended. We wait with great anticipation for the next series to be broadcast here in the states. Would love to see a the love interest develop between Morse and Joan….why not? A little romance goes a long way! Acting is superb, story line intriguing, a few dead bodies here and there makes for tantalising must-see TV! Keep it up. We’re huge fans!

  11. We so love British television and the new Shakespeare & Hathaway was a favorite!
    Please keep these wonderful shows coming to USA and us in Massachusetts. We really can’t get enough of the shows here.

  12. Of course we will watch Season 7 and *! We love Endeavor and also Shakespeare and Hathaway! LOVE British shows so much and so grateful that they can be seen in USA Massachusetts. Keep them coming please! Michael and Donna Hughes

  13. Of course we will watch Season 7 and *! We love Endeavor and also Shakespeare and Hathaway! LOVE British shows so much and so grateful that they can be seen in USA Massachusetts. Keep them coming please! Michael and Donna Hughes

  14. Ive often wondered why hasnt HATHAWAY been developed from Lewis? Laurence Fox would do a great job on his own! Viewers love British detective shows!

  15. I hope it doesn’t end. I was very disappointed Lewis ended. There shouldn’t be a cap to episodes. They’re well acted and written;as along as that’s the case, they can go on. Hopefully, the cast feels the same. Look how long Midsomer Murder has continued.
