British dramas have always fascinated the people. From Downtown Abbey to Peaky Blinders, all have gone to become a huge success. Another such show hailing from the British drama series is Endeavour.
Endeavour debuted on ITV on 14th April 2013. The British T.V detective series is created by Russell Lewis and based on the characters by Colin Dexter. Endeavour Morse is an Oxford Police constable. He works with CID and engages in several investigations while developing remarkable personality traits.
The show has gone to air for 6 consecutive seasons. With an IMDb rating of 8.1/10, the show has been a smash hit. Season 7 will be releasing later this whereas the show has officially been renewed for the 8th season.
Endeavour Season 8: Release Date
ITV has confirmed Endeavour Season 8 before the season 7 premiere. There has been no news regarding when the filming will begin. However, there has also been no official announcement regarding the official release date of Season 8. ITV has commissioned the 8th season for 2021.
Season 7 has arrived on PBS on the 9th of February at 8 pm.
What To Expect From The Eight Season?
The seventh season will see the police constable enter a whole new decade. This will be an era of change that will drastically test Endeavour’s moral compass, personally and professionally. Season 7 ended with a final scene, set against a nighttime Venetian backdrop. The previous season saw the Oxford City Police struggling to trace down the Towpath Killer. Tensions between Endeavour and Fred finally reached a boiling at the end of the three-part seventh season. This had made the Endeavour file for a transfer. However, he has continued the follow up that has led to freak accidents.
Endeavour moved to Venice after figuring out it was his friend Ludo who was causing the deadly freak accidents. The final moonlit showdown saw Fred show up in the nick of time before Violetta took a bullet for Endeavour. The three-part season ended with Endeavour cradling her as Violetta died in his arms.
Season 8 is expected to pick up after the events of the previous season. However, the creators and the cast members have been tightly lipped regarding the plot details. We will have more for you once we get sufficient details.
