Endeavour Will Return

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.

Inspector George Gently and DCI Banks are Back

Fans of 60s era Northumberland crime drama, George Gently, will be happy to know that both Inspector Gently and DS Bacchus survived the gunshot wounds they received at the end of the last series.  They may be slightly battered (especially Bacchus) but they’ll soon be back at work solving four new cases.

Episode one is set to air on Thursday, February 6th.

Also returning is moody Yorkshire crime drama DCI Banks.  The series, based on the novels of Peter Robinson, will consist of six new episodes (three two-part stories).   You can watch the trailer here and then tune in to ITV on Monday, February 3rd for the first episode.

In the US George Gently is available for streaming on Netflix and Acorn TV.  The first two series of DCI Banks were broadcast on PBS so there is hope that the third may find its way here as well.
