Sometimes the Way Seasons are Numbered is Confusing

ITV Confirms a Ninth Season of ‘Inspector Lewis’

It’s official: UK network ITV has announced that a ninth series of Inspector Lewis has been commissioned.

The popular mystery series’ ninth season will be comprised of six episodes, which will retain the one-hour format first used in Season 7.

Stars Kevin Whateley and Laurence Fox are both set to return, despite the fact that the future of the show has seemed somewhat up in the air in recent years, as the drama sort of wrapped up its run back in 2013, before returning for a surprise eighth season in 2014. It’s been rather dramatic, so it’s nice to have official confirmation that fans will definitely see the show again. Angela Griffin will also be back as DS Lizzie Maddox.
