Plot Synopsis

Set in 1960s Oxford, this prequel to INSPECTOR MORSE follows Endeavour Morse when he was a rookie Detective Constable, well before his signature red Jaguar but with his deductive powers already on display. Morse is joined by Detective Inspector Fred Thursday, his senior partner and mentor, as they investigate cases like burgled gas meters, a string of Post Office robberies, and the hit-and-run death of an eminent Oxford professor. By the end of the four-episode first season, Morse is studying for the Sergeant's Exam and finds himself in a situation where he must choose between the responsibilities of his job and loyalty to his mentor. ITV1 aired the series pilot on January 2, 2012, more than 15 months before the official series premiere on Sunday, April 14, 2013 at 8pm. Almost three months later, PBS then aired the U.S. premiere of the series on Sunday, July 7, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT as part of MASTERPIECE MYSTERY!. PBS aired the U.S. premiere of the second season of ENDEAVOUR on Sunday, June 29, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT (check local listings). Season 2 opened four months after Morse's brush with death, when he returns to duty with Oxford City Police and is reunited with DI Thursday. Morse's first case involves a John Doe who plummets to his death in what appears to be a routine suicide. When Morse discovers the man's mysterious final message, he begins to consider seemingly unrelated cases, causing Thursday to worry that Morse's wounds may have been more in mind than body. Season 3 of ENDEAVOUR premiered in the United States on Sunday, June 19, 2016 at 9pm on PBS (check local listings). In the third season, Shaun Evans returns as the young Endeavour Morse. In four new films, Endeavour must deal with the aftermath of the events that left him in prison and his senior officer, DI Thursday, with a life-threatening injury. In the season opener, a country fair turns sinister when young bus conductress Jeannie Hearne is found brutally murdered in the Oxfordshire countryside. DC Endeavour Morse isn't part of the team called in to investigate her murder; instead, he's brooding over his suspension from duty, pending an inquiry. But when Jeannie's body turns up near his doorstep, he begins his own covert investigation, uncovering a disturbing secret that is hidden in plain sight. PBS aired the U.S. premiere of the fourth season of ENDEAVOUR on Sunday, August 20, 2017 at 9pm (check local listings). In the season opener, "Game," Endeavour finds himself consumed by a nightmarish case hunting a serial killer; he must race against time to find the connection between a chess-playing 'thinking' machine and a baffling drowning.
