The programme has become a huge fan favourite over the past decade, with 33 successful episodes over eight seasons.

But unfortunately all good things have to come to an end.

Executive Producer of the show Damien Timmer confirmed the show’s future plans in a statement.

He said: “Endeavour has been a real labour of love for all of us, and we salute Russell Lewis for his extraordinary achievement in chronicling Endeavour Morse’s coming of age across 72 hours of tv.

“Russell always knew where he wanted the series to end, and that Remorseful Day is nearly upon us!

“We’d like to thank Shaun and Roger and all the other members of the Endeavour family on and off screen, and to the show’s fans both in the U.K. and abroad.

“Russell has many surprises up his sleeve for the final three films, with the return of some familiar faces and new challenges for Endeavour and Thursday to face before the final goodbye!”

Endeavour is the prequel to ITV series Inspector Morse.

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

He is played by actor Shaun Evans.

The pilot episode, which premiered in 2012, accumulated 8.21m viewers.

It followed on from Inspector Morse and its sequel Lewis, which aired between 2006 and 2015.

The ninth series will consist of three episodes.
