Before He Was "Inspector Morse" He Was "Endeavour"

The highly anticipated second season of Endeavour has arrived in the United States!

Season two of the Inspector Morse prequel airs on Masterpiece | Mystery!on Fridays at 9 p.m., beginning July 11.

Shaun Evans returns as a young Endeavour Morse, along with co-star Roger Allam as Morse's partner, DI Fred Thursday, as the two investigate various crimes in the 1960s. 

The series is written by acclaimed screenwriter Russell Lewis, who also wrote for the original Morse mysteries.

Endeavour follows the story of a young Morse in the early days of his career, after leaving his Oxford college without taking a degree and joining the police force. Series 1 aired last summer as part of Masterpiece | Mystery! to a very warm reception from fans who have embraced this additional chapter in the world of Inspector Morse.

The second season has four feature-length episodes: 

July 11 "Trove" - When an unknown man plummets to his death, Morse unearths secrets in the university and far beyond the city.

July 18 "Nocturne" - The death of an elderly man with a specialism in heraldry and genealogy propels Morse to the Blythe Mount School for Girls.

July 25 "Sway" - A housewife found choked to death in her own home marks the third strangling in a month, setting Oxford Police on edge.

August 1 "Neverland" - A petty criminal's escape from an open prison sets off a chain reaction of troubling events, exposing unspeakable horrors of the past.
