With the beloved British detective series renewed for an eighth season, here’s everything that we know and can expect for the next season!
Release Date: Endeavour Season 8
Just as the shooting for season 7 begun in the fall on 2019, it was already announced that there would be an eighth season, originally slated to be aired sometime in 2021. The show aired the first episode of its 7th season on 9th February 2020, and the last episode aired on 23rd February 2020.
Now, due to the on-going pandemic of the COVID-19, like many other productions, this might also be delayed. It’s not very clear when the fans can get a glimpse of the newly announced season.
Cast: Endeavour Season 8
We are expecting that the lead casts will be back. Shaun Evans plays Endeavour Morse and Roger Allam, who plays his mentor, Fred Thursday are likely to play their roles for the new season. Also possible to return is Sara Vickers as Joan Thursday, Morse’s love interest. Even Shaun Evans mentioned about her return on The Radio Times, stating about the character, “definitely be back, she’s part of the family”.
Plot: Endeavour Season 8
Each season of Endeavour has traditionally set in a particular year. The seventh season took place in the year 1970, so it is expected that the eighth season takes place in the year 1971. About the plot, no specific details are provided. Still, Russell Lewis(The Show’s creator and writer), in an interview, has said that ITV (British Television Channel) has asked them to add more to the Casebook of Colin Dexter’s immortal creation. Like to 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’. We might have to wait for the details regarding the plot of the new season, but it is always exciting to keep thinking about possible theories and stories!
