The program has become a massive fan favorite over the past decade, boasting 33 successful episodes across eight seasons.

But unfortunately all good things come to an end.

The show’s executive producer, Damien Timmer, confirmed the show’s future plans in a statement.

He said: “Endeavor has been a true labor of love for all of us, and we salute Russell Lewis for his extraordinary achievement in chronicling Endeavor Morse’s coming of age on 72 Hours of Television.

“Russell always knew where he wanted the show to end, and that Remorseful Day is right around the corner!

“We would like to thank Shaun and Roger and all the other members of the Endeavor family on and off screen, as well as the fans of the series in the UK and overseas.

“Russell has plenty of surprises up his sleeve for the final three films, with familiar faces returning and new challenges for Endeavor and Thursday to tackle before the final farewell!”

Endeavor is the prequel to the ITV series Inspector Morse.

It is set in the 1960s/70s and follows the life of young Detective Chief Inspector Endeavor Morse.

He is played by actor Shaun Evans.

The pilot episode, which premiered in 2012, drew 8.21 million viewers.

It follows Inspector Morse and its sequel Lewis, which aired between 2006 and 2015.

The ninth series will consist of three episodes.
