The creator of the show, Russell Lewis has hinted that ITV has asked them to continue adding to the casebook of Colin Dexter’s immortal character, Endeavour Morse. They will be taking Morse and Oxford’s finest into a new decade of decimalisation, Oil Crisis, package holidays, Blackouts and Europa Endlos.
