ITV1 has re-commissioned another series of 'Lewis'.
The detective drama - which attracts a regular audience of seven million - will return to TV screens later this year with three new episodes currently titled 'Generation of Vipers', 'The Age of Foolishness' and 'Death of the Author'.
Kevin Whately and Laurence Fox will both reprise their roles as Inspector Robbie Lewis and his partner DS James Hathaway respectively investigating very modern murders amidst the exquisite architecture of the ancient University of Oxford.
Controller of Drama Commissioning Sally Haynes said: "Lewis and Hathaway have become a formidable partnership not only in terms of cracking murders cases, but also in terms of their popularity with ITV1 viewers. We're thrilled they are returning to work on some great new stories."
Executive Producer Michele Buck added: "Lewis and Hathaway's partnership has grown in popularity with every series as viewers enjoy the fine writing, acting and excellent production values Lewis has to offer."
The new series will once again feature beautiful locations in and around the city of Oxford, including the Cherwell and Isis rivers and the magnificent university colleges.
