ITV to Make a New Series of Lewis

ITV have announced that they have recomissioned a new series of Lewis, starring Kevin Whately, as Inspector Lewis, and Laurence Fox as his partner, D.S.James Hathaway.

The names of three new episodes have been released as Generation of Vipers, The Age of Foolishness, and Death of the Author.

Generation of Vipers will be directed by David O’Neill (Law and Order UK) and Toby Stephens (Jane Eyre, Die Another Day) will guest star.

Rachel Bennette, Simon Block and Russell Lewis, the writers who created the original series of Lewis in 2006 as a spin off from Inspector Morse, starring John Thaw, will remain on the popular drama, writing a number of the episodes.

ITV Controller of Drama Commissioning, Sally Haynes, said:

“Lewis and Hathaway have become a formidable partnership not only in terms of cracking murder cases, but also in terms of their popularity with ITV1 viewers.  We are thrilled they are returning to work on some great new stories.”

  1. I am in the US and I'm a great fan of the series 'Inspector Lewis' as it is titled here across the pond. I feared the series had ended but I am heartened to read there are more stories to come. I hope the series lasts for many more years to come; simply the best.

  2. Glad you are a fan of our British drama!
