After the cliff hanger at the end of the second series put Morse behind bars and Inspector Thursday near (please only near!) death, ITV was almost honor bound to commission another series. Still, it’s nice to make it official. Endeavour will return to ITV next year for four new episodes. No word yet on the state of Thursday’s health…
Also returning for another series is DCI Banks. DCI Banks and his team will tackle six new gloomy , and entertaining, Yorkshire-based crimes.
Now that ITV has aired the final Poirot episode, it’s the BBC’s turn to take on the Agatha Christie canon. Their first two commissions include a new adaptation of, And Then There Were None, and a six-part series featuring Christie’s husband and wife sleuths, Tommy and Tuppence.
In the meantime, those craving a golden age fix can enjoy a Miss Marple double-header on PBS this Sunday, September 21st – A Caribbean Mystery and Greenshaw’s Folly.
Also, check out the new promo for Lewis. PBS will air the first of three new episodes on October 5th.
